Derrick Rose in 'serious talks' to sign with Cavaliers

LeBron James Is Reportedly 'Frustrated And Concerned' With Dan Gilbert And The Cavs

Other reports have linked Rose to the Los Angeles Lakers, who reportedly want to talk to him again before he agrees to a deal with the Cavaliers.

His season ended April 2 after a left knee injury that required the fourth knee surgery of his nine-year National Basketball Association career.

According to ESPN.com, Irving asked the Cavs last week to trade him.

Rose also has met with the Los Angeles Lakers in their quest to land a point guard. Amick says Rose will choose his next team this weekend, which will either be the Cavs, Lakers or Bulls.

The 28-year-old guard is an unrestricted free agent after spending last season with the New York Knicks.

Palestinians call for 'Day of Rage' amid Jerusalem tensions
Home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock, it is Islam's third-holiest site after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia. According to Palestinian eyewitnesses, Israeli soldiers responded with a barrage of bullets, killing the driver.

That said, $2.1m on a one-year deal is tremendous value for a player of Rose's calibre, especially in a market where the salary cap came in lower than projected and more teams are strapped for cash. However, if the Bulls are trying to start over, bringing back Rose doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, taking minutes from young guys like Kris Dunn and Jerian Grant.

All three teams could pay Rose more money than the Cavs, though it is unclear what each team has offered him.

Irving reportedly wants to play for a team where he can have a bigger role, and no longer wants to play with LeBron James. According to reports, the Knicks also were initially open to the idea of re-signing Rose but have since backed off.

Rose has been working out at the Lakers practice facility lately. He played in 64 games for Chicago in 2015-16 and 64 for NY last season, all of them as a starter.

The Cavs have signed veterans Jose Calderon and Jeff Green and have recently been tied to point guard Derrick Rose, but have done little to shake up their core roster. He missed 20 games in the 20-14-15 season after another right knee operation. In the playoffs, his 25.9 points and 90.5 percent from the line were career-bests. Rose is not much of an assist man but if he were to buy into the Cavs system he could turn his career around.
