D-Rose to NYK.
The Chicago Bulls have agreed to trade Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks for Jose Calderon, Jerian Grant and Robin Lopez. Seriously.
The Knicks will also be receiving the Bulls' 2017 second round pick and Justin Holiday, but this is strictly about D-Rose coming to NYC.
As we're all well aware, the former NBA MVP has been plagued by countless knee injuries over the last few seasons but he managed to play in 60 games in 2016 for the first time since 2011.
Last year with the Bulls Rose averaged 16.4 points and 4.7 assists per game, he'll be entering the final year of his contract.
The Bulls are trading Rose to the Knicks for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and bigger package, sources tell @TheVertical— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 22, 2016
Source close to Rose tells me he's excited about playing for Knicks. "His 1st choice was New York (if traded). He wants the spotlight.''— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 22, 2016

D-Rose made 3 All-Star teams in Chicago (2010-12). Last Knicks PG to make All-Star team was Mark Jackson (1989). pic.twitter.com/AhzMe9zaWl— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 22, 2016
