Derrick Rose isn't expected to decide where he will play next season until next week.
With the uncertainty surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Cavs, Rose may want to wait until that situation is resolved, as the Cavs may need a new starting point guard. The other teams Rose is reportedly considering are the Lakers, Bulls and Bucks. His fantasy value will be dependent on where he lands. Jul 22 - 10:04 AM

Derrick Rose and the Lakers had a meeting for about three hours on Thursday, according to Chris Haynes of

The report adds that both sides feel good about it -- #WentWell, of course. Rose is expected to have more meetings this weekend with the Cavs as the toughest competition. There's a good chance Rose can play some shooting guard for both of these teams, but the Lakers will likely be offering more of a scoring opportunity.

Derrick Rose and his agent could meet with the Bulls this weekend, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Besides the fact that Rose won an MVP with the Bulls, this doesn't really make much sense. The Bulls are in a full rebuild and they already have three point guards who can't hit treys, so adding another would be a head-scratching move. Expect Rose to sign with the Cavs or Lakers this weekend.

The Lakers will meet with free agent PG Derrick Rose on Thursday.

The Cavaliers have reportedly offered Rose a one-year deal worth anywhere from $2.1 to $2.5 million, while the Lakers can offer a $4.3M exception. It's no secret that they want to bring in a veteran to mentor Lonzo Ball, and ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said the Lakers believe "they can offer more playing time in a better environment after his tumultuous year in New York." While no deal is imminent, it seems like the Cavaliers and the Lakers are the frontrunners to sign Rose, while the Bucks are fading from view.

Derrick Rose is in "serious talks" with the Cavaliers on a one-year deal according to ESPN.

Rose is the top free agent PG left on the market, but he's drawn very little interest so far. The Bucks were considered a potential suitor last week, but the two sides weren't able to schedule a meeting for reasons unknown. Rose would be an odd fit in Cleveland because they already have Kyrie Irving, but it's at least worth noting that Irving excels off the ball. In order to join the Cavs, Rose would have to take a discount because they can only offer a portion of the taxpayer midlevel exception (up to $2.5 million) or a veteran's minimum deal according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today.

Derrick Rose and the Bucks still haven't scheduled a meeting.

The meeting was supposed to happen this weekend, so it's not clear why it didn't go through. Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today said there's still mutual interest between the two sides, but maybe Rose is waiting for them to shed a contract or two so they can offer more money -- they are already over the tax and can only offer $5.2 million for next season. Hopefully we'll have some clarity by the end of the day.

Derrick Rose and the Bucks are in "discussions to schedule a meeting" as early as this weekend, according to Chris Haynes of

When the date is set, the meeting is expected to be in Los Angeles. Rose and the Bucks have already met once, and this report adds that the toughest obstacle is compensation for Rose. The Bucks are already over the tax, so the most they could offer right now would be $5.2 million for the upcoming season.

The Mavs are "not in the market" for Derrick Rose, according to Eddie Sefko of Dallas News.

And that rumor from earlier this hour gets shut down, which is hardly a surprise. The Mavs are clearly going to turn it over to Dennis Smith Jr. at point guard, so the Mavs going after Rose would be a shocker. Rose is likely going to wind up on a team missing out on the first- and second-tier point guards in free agency.

The Mavs have emerged as a "serious contender" for Derrick Rose, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

It's a fairly common practice for this type of report to come out this time of year. However, it would be a mild surprise to see the Mavs bring in Rose after owner Mark Cuban said this is the beginning of the Dennis Smith Jr. era. Expect a few more Rose rumors.

Derrick Rose will meet with the Clippers on Wednesday according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The point guard market is drying up, so Rose is now one of the best available. The Bucks are still considered the favorites to sign the former MVP, but they would have to shed some contracts first. The Clippers do have a quality point guard in Patrick Beverley, but he's only on the books for one more season. Rose was able to stay on the floor for most of the 2016-17 season on his way to averages of 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.2 turnovers per game, but he suffered a torn left meniscus in April and was given a timetable of 3-6 weeks. He's just a late-round option regardless of where he lands because his upside in fantasy isn't great due to a lack of 3-pointers and steals.
Jul 4 - 8:48 PM

Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times is reporting that Derrick Rose "wants to be in Milwaukee," but that the Bucks will have to make a trade to accommodate him.

One of the draws for Rose is that Milwaukee is close to his hometown of Chicago. However, it's an odd fit from a Bucks perspective. Milwaukee's starting point guard, Malcolm Brogdon, just won the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award and they also have Matthew Dellavedova under contract for three more years at $28.8 million. They may try to move Delly to clear up cap space and playing time for Rose.

The Knicks are no longer all that interested in re-signing Derrick Rose during free agency.

Rose had a supporter in Phil Jackson, but with Jackson no longer a part of the picture, support for re-signing Rose amongst the Knicks execs has dwindled. Rose met with the Bucks on Monday, but it's unclear how far those talks went. Through 64 games during his 2016-17 campaign, Rose compiled averages of 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 2.2 turnovers per game on 47.1 percent shooting, which was only good enough for late-round value in standard 9-cat leagues.

Derrick Rose will meet with the Bucks on Monday.

The Bucks don't have the cap space to make Rose or any other high-profile free agent a competitive offer, so the team is trying to shed some contracts. An obvious trade candidate would include Greg Monroe, as he's on the books for $17.8 million in 2017-18. Rose would be looking at a starting role in Milwaukee and would be close to his hometown of Chicago, so this could be a good fit for the former MVP. If the two sides can hammer out a deal, Rose's potential arrival would ruin the fantasy appeal of Matthew Dellavedova and Malcolm Brogdon would lose some value as well.
Jul 3 - 9:13 AM

The Knicks have reached out to Derrick Rose, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

The report indicates that New York considers Rose a "serious option" at this point. The Knicks drafted Frank Ntilikina with their first-round pick in the 2017 draft, but are looking to bring in a veteran starting point guard. George Hill is another player they are currently interested in, but Hill may be out of their price range. Although Rose is coming off a knee injury (torn meniscus), he posted solid numbers last season in New York, averaging 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds.
Jul 1 - 10:41 AM

The Knicks are still interested in bringing back Derrick Rose, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

This is a conflicting report from earlier today with the NY Daily News calling Rose a "long shot" to be back in the Big Apple. The Knicks are likely going to pursue George Hill over Rose, and also Rose is likely going to be a backup plan for a lot of teams.
