Derrick Rose Reveals Which NBA Team He Wants To Play For
Derrick Rose revealed which NBA team he wants to play for in a recent interview.
Rose has been one of the league’s most surprising positive stories so far this season.
The 31-year-old former MVP is averaging 19 points and 6 assists per game while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field.
After struggling for a long time to return to his pre-injury form, this is as close as we have seen Rose to it in years.
Because the Detroit Pistons are in the midst of a rebuild, Rose’s spectacular year is getting wasted.
As such, his name is frequently floated in various trade scenarios.
Rose is presently on a deal that will see him getting paid $7.7 million next year.
This week, Rose stopped to talk to the media about his status with the Pistons and where he wants to be playing.
Derrick Rose on trade rumors: It’s up to the front office. Arn (Tellem) gave me his word that if something were to happen, he will text or call, but I told him that I want to stay here, but it’s not up to me. You already know how that goes.” #Pistons

“It’s up to the front office,” he said.
“[My agent] Arn [Tellem] gave me his word that if something were to happen, he will text or call, but I told him that I want to stay here, but it’s not up to me.
“You already know how that goes.”
Detroit is currently 17-33 through 50 outings and way out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
As a result, it is pretty much a lock that Rose will get traded sooner rather than later.
The NBA trade deadline is set for February 6, so look for a deal to get done before that.
