Wednesday, 07.04.18

Derrick Rose has signed a one-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the 2018-2019 season, the team announced Wednesday. Rose was originally signed by the Timberwolves as a free agent on March 8 last season.

The 2011 NBA MVP appeared in 25 regular season games between Minnesota and Cleveland in 2017-18, averaging 8.4 points on 43.5% shooting. During the postseason, Rose appeared in all five games of Minnesota’s first round series against Houston, averaging 14.2 points on 50.9% shooting off the bench.

Per team policy, details of the agreement were not released.

The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the Houston Rockets in what was a disappointing series loss, but Rose once again played well off the bench. He has been very aggressive on the offensive end of the floor, finding his way to the basket with regularity. Rose’s play since he was acquired has been impressive as of late, especially in the playoffs, where he’s averaged 14.8 points in 23.8 minutes per game.
“He’s huge for us. But he’s one of the guys that insists on playing hard, as well,” Jimmy Butler said. “He’s always working on his game. You see what he’s done in this league, and he can still do that at any point and time. He’s just a helluva player. And the crazy thing is, he’s so unselfish. Whatever you ask him to do — guard this guy, guard that guy, get a stop, get a bucket, get somebody else a bucket — he’s capable of doing that.”

Derrick Rose signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, March 8, reuniting with former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as well as former Bulls teammates Taj Gibson, Aaron Brooks and Jimmy Butler.

“I’ve been knowing them and been in battle with them for years, so it’s comfortable,” Rose said. “I’m very comfortable. Usually when I’m comfortable, I play well.”

Derrick has been working out and preparing for this opportunity to help for a run at the 2018 playoffs. “I’ve just been staying ready and am coming here and trying to make it to the playoffs and I feel like I can help” Rose said. “I just want to win and help this team and franchise win.”
