Derrick Rose said the triangle offense is complicated.
While the Knicks aren't expected to primarily run the triangle exclusively, Rose expressed his thoughts after the Knicks worked on it on Thursday. While saying there are "like 40 or 50 options", he added that "it's a little bit complicated right now." Rose may have some growing pains as he adjusts to his new team and system, and isn't worth anything more than a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 29 - 2:01 PM

A detective from the LAPD has confirmed that there is an active criminal investigation against Derrick Rose.

The original lawsuit was civil and just for money, but this latest report means that Rose could be in serious trouble. Rose’s attorney Mark Baute had previously alleged that Bradan Anand (victim's attorney) was lying about an active criminal investigation in order to extort a settlement from Rose, but that's not the case. Rose will be speaking at the Knicks' media day on Monday, so we should hear more details soon. The trial will begin on Oct. 4, meaning Rose could miss several preseason games if he doesn't settle the suit.

Phil Jackson said the Knicks are "not concerned" about a potential rape trial for Derrick Rose.

Perhaps Jackson and his organization should reevaluate their stance. "We're just going to let the process work itself out," the Zen Master said. "We understand this is a serious subject we’re talking about, but this has to be done outside of our control. It’s something we can’t control." The Knicks willingly traded for Rose this offseason knowing possible litigation could be forthcoming, and the organization can't continue to pretend it's a complete non-issue. As for Rose's on-court work, new coach Jeff Hornacek said that the point guard's body is "good." and he's not expected to have any kind of minute restrictions when training camp begins next week.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said there are no minutes restrictions on Derrick Rose heading into the season.

Rose is somewhat healthy after playing 66 games last season -- he only averaged half that (33) in his previous three seasons. The Bulls were very cautious with Rose and rested him when anything came up. While Hornacek is saying this now, things will likely change once Rose gets banged up.

Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said "it was time" to move on from Derrick Rose.

"What we felt was it was time," Reinsdorf said. "We felt Joakim wasn't going to be a frontline guy anymore. I was pretty confident that Pau [Gasol] was going to leave. So it was important for us to get the center in [Robin] Lopez. It was time for Derrick to go on and play someplace else and try to establish himself. Gar and Pax were high on the Grant kid [Jerian]. We thought that was the necessary first step no matter how we were going to go."

Derrick Rose said that he's going to let his game "speak for itself" this upcoming season.

"I'm going to let my game speak for itself," Rose said regarding his recent declaration that the Knicks should be considered a Super Team. "I said what I said and whenever I step on the floor I'm going to have to prove myself." In what some would consider a healthy season for Rose last year, he suited up for 66 games and produced averages of 16.4 points, 4.7 assists and 2.7 turnovers per game on 42.7 percent shooting, which had him ranked well outside the top-150 in standard settings.

Justin Holiday believes that Derrick Rose will "surprise a lot of people" this season.

"I don’t understand that people didn’t see that Derrick was hurt and he hadn’t had a full year back being healthy,’’ Holiday said. "He now has a full year and full summer. I think he’s going to be dangerous." Holiday added that Rose is "still explosive, strong, still one of the fastest people in the NBA." We've heard positive reports about Rose all summer long, but nothing changes the fact that he will be a late-round pick in fantasy because of his injury history and inefficient play last season. He's also in some hot water because of the civil sexual assault case against him, but the investigation is still ongoing.

Derrick Rose said that the trade sending him away from his hometown of Chicago to New York took him by surprise.

"I couldn’t believe it. I was kind of hurt at first, of course, coming from my hometown and moving, period," Rose said. "Being away from my kids and away my family, that’s going to get to you, no matter who you are. You’re going to be emotional about it." Rose added that he is happy to be suiting up for the Knicks, he loves the culture that Phil Jackson is creating in New York and is ready for everyone to see a "more mature player." With Brandon Jennings backing him up, Rose will likely have his minutes closely monitored, so it's going to be tough to invest anything more than a late-round selection on the former MVP.

Derrick Rose said he thinks the Knicks can be a title contender this season.

Though Rose has been knocked for his confidence in his team as of late, he didn't reverse course in his latest comments. "I feel like I’m not done," Rose said. "It’s a new start. I feel rejuvenated, and when you put all that together, when I step on the floor, I really don’t know what to expect. What I’m doing right now is just preparing myself for something big. I think we have a chance to win every game, and in the league, that’s rare." Rose is still just 27 years old, but he's too inefficient and risky to be anything more than a late-round pick in most fantasy drafts.

Derrick Rose said that he won't take back his comments about the Knicks being in the same "Super Team" class as the Warriors.

"I still believe that," Rose said. "Like I said, with that Super Team term, you have to be very careful, I guess, if you’re in the United States. But I feel like if you’re in any team in the NBA -- it don’t have to be the NBA, it could be the college level, high school level -- you should believe in yourself and have the confidence in yourself that you’re playing on a super team anywhere." If the Knicks struggle this season, this won't be the last time that Rose will have to defend those comments. He's expected to "share the ball more" with the Knicks, but remains a risky fantasy target due to his inefficient style of play and durability issues.

Derrick Rose plans to "share the ball more" with the Knicks next season.

"With the Bulls ... the offense really went through me and Jimmy [Butler]," Rose said. "With the Knicks, we have [Kristaps Porzingis], we have [Carmelo Anthony], we have [Joakim Noah] rolling to the rim. We’ve got Courtney [Lee]." Rose posted a career-low assist rate last season, at 25.5 percent, and anyone who owns the players mentioned above should be hoping that his actions support his words.

Derrick Rose will head to trial on October 4 after his request to get a sexual assault civil case against him thrown out was denied.

A former girlfriend of Rose accused him and his friends of drugging and sexually assaulting her and allegations were brought forth in August 2015 (two years after the alleged assault). Rose can settle the case outside of court before the trial begins, but he could end up missing part of the Knicks' preseason.

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.

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.
