ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst reported on Thursday that Rose and the defending Eastern Conference-champion Cleveland Cavaliers are in "serious talks" about a one-year deal.

In addition to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Derrick Rose also recently spoke with the LA Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks about a potential landing spot earlier this week.

Derrick Rose might just be the next ex-Knick to get a shot to chase an National Basketball Association title with LeBron James.

Rose, the former NBA Most Valuable Player in 2011 for the Chicago Bulls, had struggled in the recent years due to significant injuries and off-court troubles.

Rose was traded last summer from the Bulls to the Knicks, where he averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists for a NY team that ended the season 30-52.

Cavs closing in on signing Derrick.

Despite the solid numbers last season, drama once again found its way to Rose. Although he did play solid while being in NY. However, Rose still a career low from deep at 21 percent. He shot his best percentage since 2009-10 - 47.1 percent shooting - in 64 games.

On April 2, he was ruled out for the season with the Knicks due to torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee.

Fans can only wish him the best as he wants to continue playing under his own power.
