Derrick Rose - Cavaliers in serious discussions

1:28 | NBA         Is there any way Celtics can nab Anthony Davis from Pelicans

Earlier on Thursday, it was reported by ESPN's Brian Windhorst that the Cavaliers were in serious talks with Rose on a one-year deal, but Rose will still reportedly meet with the Lakers. Neither of which would move the dial much, especially not against competition like the Golden State Warriors. However, despite serving as a former league MVP in an inflated market, it appears as though Rose is only in line to receive a one-year deal from the three-time defending Eastern Conference champs.

Although, having Rose attack relentlessly off the bench when, say LeBron is resting, is exactly what this team needed last season. Adding an even 18 points per outing as well, he also averaged 4.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 0.7 steals in 2016-17.

The Cavs are believed to be offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million for the upcoming season to play with Kyrie Irving in the team's backcourt. While he's nowhere near the caliber of player he once was, he certainly has shown he can still contribute quite a bit to a team such as the Cavaliers. He averaged 25 points per game and almost 8 assists per contest.

Rose missed the entire 2012-2013 season recovering from knee surgery.

Fans can only wish him the best as he wants to continue playing under his own power.
