Community Shootaround: Derrick Rose On The Knicks?

The Knicks are reportedly having internal discussions about adding Derrick Rose to the team. Point guard is clearly a need for New York, as trotting Jose Calderon out on the floor as the starting point guard when he’ll be 35-years-old next season clearly isn’t a favorable option. If the franchise wants to add a talented point guard this offseason, it could do worse than Rose.

The 2010/11 MVP has one year and $21.3MM left on his deal and although that’s a bit of an overpay based on Rose’s health and level of play these past few seasons, the contract isn’t a hindrance to acquire him. If Rose can stay healthy, New York is easily challenging for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. If it doesn’t work out, New York still hasn’t clogged up its cap sheet long-term and can enter the 2017 offseason searching for another option with money to spend.

So here’s tonight’s topic: If the Knicks are going to make an attempt to trade for Rose, what kind of package should they offer the Bulls?

Jerian Grant would probably need to head to Chicago and New York would likely want to offload some salary in the deal. Robin Lopez is a nice player, but Kristaps Porzingis‘ future should be at the five spot, so the Knicks may be open to trading its starting center. The Bulls presumable would want a future first, but if I was New York, I’d only offer a heavily protected pick, possibly one that’s top-20 protected.

Those are my parameters for a Rose-to-New York deal, tell us yours as well as your thoughts and opinions on Rose’s fit in the Big Apple in the comment section below. We look forward to what you have to say!

As long as you don’t trade Lopez, Melo, Zinger and future firsts, go for it.

Giving a lot of assets for an injury prone, one year rental player is exactly what we shouldn’t do. Let’s take a page out of bostons book, rebuild correctly. Draft, FA, so on.

Rose need a good conditioning coach . He’s worth a fly if they play him as they did Jason Kidd SG/pg. Yet who the package up become. Mystery. Lopez should be a no no. Most the bench has able rebounders . Under Rambis they saw no light so how do teams know their value. Ex Quinn. Tough package plus adraft pick gonna be added in any deal

No trading a future 1st for Rose is the last thing the Knicks need to do, why would the Knicks repeat the Bargnani debacle?

Rose isn’t Bargs. He’s a former MVP. If we get half of that player we win.

Assuming his glass ass knees allow him to be active for enough games

The Knicks HAVE to (and probably will) make an upgrade at the PG position over the summer, but I don’t know if Derek Rose is the answer. A trade would require assets that the Knicks do not have such as draft picks and young, promising players and his 21 million dollar salary is quite a lot for a player with an injury history and someone who is on the decline. I think free agency better suits the team.

Throw Melo in and secure Portis and Noah as well. KP / Portis / Rose / Lopez and Grant/Wroten with 25 Million to secure a FA. Now go talk to Durant. Remember Rose is a 1 year ticket if he doesn’t work out we will have 25 again next year.

Only if the Bulls will take Calderon…do not I’ve them any kicks for this overpaid, injury prone, expiring deal.

I don’t think they trade RoLo. He was they’re only bright spot outside of Melo & Porzingis. They need consistency like Robin. I think a pick is included in the package instead

The Knicks don’t need Rose. You can collect assets and trade them the following year.

As a Bulls fan, I say no way. You can keep those garbage players. Rose will be an all star next year in a contract year.
