Rose has been working out and evaluating his options since then, and he became a father again three days before completing the deal with the Timberwolves.

Rose had been a free agent since being waived by the Utah Jazz on February 10 after he was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rose will now reunite with head coach Tom Thibodeau following their time together with the Chicago Bulls.

Watching Derrick Rose play in his prime was a sight to see. While playing with the Knicks he averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists per game.

Thibodeau coached Rose during his time with the Chicago Bulls.

He rejoins former Chicago Bulls teammates Taj Gibson and the now injured Jimmy Butler. But bone spurs in his ankle and a second incident in two seasons of leaving his team to contemplate his future in basketball led to Rose falling out of the Cavaliers' rotation. Rose had been with the team since he was selected first overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'.

"We just thought he could help the team", Thibodeau said. I'm not here for stats or anything like that. "Come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win", also according to ESPN.

BTW - the Wolves are now 6th in the super-stacked Western Conference, so it's unlikely. but crazier things have happened. I'm wholeheartedly invested, even though I just got here.

By comparison, the Cavaliers were outscored by 5.3 points per 100 possessions with Rose on the floor, largely because he failed to pull his weight on defense.
