T’ Wolves grab ex-MVP Rose
The Minnesota Timberwolves react to Superstar Jimmy Butler’s injury and engage Free Agent Derrick Rose.
The 2011 Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose has found a new NBA club, reports Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN.
The Minnesota Timberwolves responded to Superstar Jimmy Butler’s injury, which will be cancelled between four to six weeks, and committed the Free Agent as a back-up for the guard positions.
Rose was released from Utah Jazz in February 2018 after the Point Guard was shipped to Salt Lake City by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-team trade.
The jazz was given to Jae Crowder and Rose and a draft pick by the LeBron James team, while Rodney Hood joined the Cavs and Joe Johnson joined the Sacramento Kings.
However, Utah had no use for the injury-prone rose and immediately dismissed the 29-year-old.
In Minnesota, the former superstar will now face his ex-team mates Butler and Taj Gibson and coach Tim Thibodeau, with whom Rose had his most successful time at the Chicago Bulls.
Since his serious knee injury in 2012, however, the first player has never returned to his high level.
With the young group of the Timberwolves around Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins he is supposed to help with his experience to make the playoffs clear.
Rose only played 16 games in the current NBA season due to injury.
