Derrick Rose said that the expectations in New York are high because the Knicks are a "super team."
"They're high," Rose said. "I mean, with these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they're trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that." He's probably getting way ahead of himself with that comment, but at least he's feeling confident again and he said that he has been "rejuvenated" by his move to New York. Rose also said that he's been working out six days a week and that he's focused on improving his mid-range shot this summer as well as his conditioning. Jul 22 - 9:56 AM

Derrick Rose was recently spotted working out with Brandon Jennings, Kristaps Porzingis and Sasha Vujacic in Los Angeles.

Players work out with each other all the time, but this one is important as it shows that the newly signed Knicks are already working on their chemistry. Jeff Hornacek said he hopes that Rose can get Porzingis some easier looks under the basket, and he hopes the pair can be a threat in the pick-and-roll, so it's nice to see them working together this early. For what it's worth, Rose reportedly looked "explosive" during his L.A. workout.

Phil Jackson thinks Derrick Rose will be able to help ease the burden on Carmelo Anthony.

"We need to have other forceful players that have established games to come to this team to activate our team," Jackson said. "I saw an opportunity with Rose to have that individual that would come in and take that load off of Carmelo as a scorer. Derrick gave us that opportunity to move forward a little bit quicker than we anticipated." Rose has to stay on the floor for that to happen, but at least New York's front office and their franchise player (Anthony) are now seemingly on the same page.

Derrick Rose said that he feels "something special" is going to happen with the Knicks.

"I’m taking all this in," he said. "I feel like something special is going to happen. I really don’t know what but I feel like something special. I’m putting in all of the work. I think that when I look back at it the most time I had this much time to really focus on basketball was the year before I won MVP and I got a lot of time to really focus on myself, learn, take care of my body, and just try to better myself to try to become the best athlete I can become." Saying it is one thing, but doing it on the court—especially for Rose at this stage of his career—is entirely another.

Derrick Rose said he feels like he's close to his MVP form.

The 2011 MVP did admit saying this isn't going to do anything. He added he is hopeful to play the rest of his career with the Knicks. Rose said he wanted to thank the Bulls for trading him and that it hurt a lot for him to miss the post season. He did text Carmelo Anthony and added he's excited to play with Kristaps Porzingis. For fantasy, he's really going to have to improve after being one of the worst starting point guards in the NBA last year.

A source not affiliated with Derrick Rose or the Knicks reported that he looked "lean and explosive" at his workouts in Los Angeles.

This is nice to hear, but the bigger issue for Rose is whether or not he can stay healthy as he enters a contract year with his new team. Add in the fact that he was one of the most inefficient players in the NBA last season and it's easy to see why he will be more of a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Phil Jackson said the Knicks could potentially look to keep Derrick Rose beyond the 2016-17 season.

Jackson referenced the situation as not something that was going to be addressed in depth today, and obviously New York will proceed with caution given Rose's history of injury issues. While the point guard has plenty of incentive to play well while remaining healthy in a contract year, the 66 games Rose played in during the 2015-16 campaign were his most since 2010-11.

The Bulls are sending Derrick Rose, Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick to the Knicks for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon.

Wow. The Bulls will be set for rebuilding mode and Rose gets a fresh start. He was one of the worst high-volume players in the NBA last year. Rose was relatively healthy last year, playing in 66 games and not missing more than three consecutive games. He likely won't have the ball in his hands as much with Carmelo Anthony around, so Rose likely won't be a big factor on the stat sheet. He's only a late-round flier in standard leagues.

The Knicks have had internal discussions recently about trading for Derrick Rose, according to ESPN NY's Ian Begley.

The Knicks are looking to get an athletic point guard for coach Jeff Hornacek. There's a chance the Bulls go into a rebuild mode and could trade Rose away, especially if they deal Jimmy Butler. The Knicks don't have much to work with trade chips, so it might have to be a three-way deal. To be clear, nothing is imminent.

The Chicago Bulls are reportedly looking to trade Derrick Rose.

While Jimmy Butler has been involved in recent trade rumors, the Bulls would rather move Rose and are reportedly actively shopping the former MVP. It's unclear if there are currently any teams interested in acquiring Rose, but his $21.3 million salary for 2016-17 could be a deterrent for any potential suitor. We'll keep an eye on news surrounding Rose, but the Bulls may be stuck with him as he enters a contract year.
Jun 14 - 1:58 PM

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune said that Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler will likely both be on the roster next season.

Johnson argues that the Bulls' offseason priority should be to trade either Rose or Butler, which makes some sense because they didn't play well together last season. A trade still seems unlikely because the Bulls' asking price for Butler is very high and Rose doesn't have much value around the league and is entering a contract year, so Chicago may have to give their starting backcourt another chance. Coach Fred Hoiberg did mention that he may stagger their minutes more next season, so that could give both players a slight boost in value.

Derrick Rose isn't thinking about his impending free agency after the 2016-17 season.

While Rose has one season left on his contract with the Bulls, he said he isn't thinking ahead to his upcoming free agency. "I'll think about that when that time comes," Rose said. "As far as right now, the only thing I can think about is this offseason. I've had that mentality ever since my injuries. I learned to deal with reality and live in the moment." While Rose isn't the player he once was, he improved his game after the All-Star Break and is still just 27 years old, so he's worth a late-round flier in 2016-17 fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose (rest) will not play in Chicago's final two games of the regular season.

It's not clear what prompted this decision, but Rose is done for the year and can be safely dropped in all formats. With E'Twaun Moore (hamstring) also out for the season, Aaron Brooks should get all of the run he can handle and finishes the year with good matchups vs. the Pelicans and Sixers. That makes him an intriguing deploy in season-long formats extending into this week while also putting him squarely onto the DFS radar as a possible punt play, but keep in mind that Jimmy Butler should do most of the playmaking.
Apr 11 - 12:57 PM

Fred Hoiberg said he's open to the idea of staggering Derrick Rose's and Jimmy Butler's minutes next season.

That would be a good idea for both the Bulls and the two individual players, and it's a surprise we didn't see more of it during what turned out to be a very disappointing season in Chicago. It's safe to say that Fred Hoiberg has learned more than he could have ever anticipated during his first season as a head coach in the NBA.

Derrick Rose was quiet on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, scoring 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting with three assists, two boards and two turnovers.

That's three sub-par games in a row for Rose since he returned from his elbow injury, averaging 13.0 points, 4.7 assists, 3.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 3.0 turnovers on 37.8 percent shooting in that span. Rose has had some nice moments this season, but he's also been very inconsistent and his efficiency hasn't been great either. He will be a volatile asset in standard leagues for the foreseeable future.
