It seems like the Derrick Rose trade rumors aren’t going away anytime soon, as it has recently been reported by Ian Begley of ESPN that the New York Knicks have emerged as frontrunners to sign the 27-year-old point guard.
The Knicks are looking to upgrade their backcourt and have reportedly had internal discussions about trading for Rose.
Here is the full quote per Begley:
“Both Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek and GM Steve Mills have said that the Knicks are interested in upgrading their point-guard position in the offseason. The Knicks’ incumbent starting point guard is Jose Calderon, while other potential point guards include second-year guard Jerian Grant and free-agent signee Tony Wroten.”
