Derrick Rose's Last Stand? Rose Signs On With Minnesota Timberwolves

Cleveland Cavaliers' Derrick Rose passes during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Cleveland

Forget MVP-level Rose, we aren't going to see him again (even Rose admits that). The Timberwolves did not release the terms, but a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the deal is for the remainder of the season.

Rose, who did not play against the Boston Celtics on Thursday, will have his first shot at hitting the hardwood in a Timberwolves jersey Sunday when Minnesota hosts the Golden State Warriors at Target Center. Rose has been slowed by injuries numerous times in his career but remains optimistic things will be different in Minnesota. "You could have your perspective on me, as far as I'm a bum, I can't play, I can't shoot, this and that, all right, cool, I have no hard feelings with that".

Minnesota will be the fourth team Rose plays for and technically his fourth franchise in the last 11 months.

Rose spent the first half of the season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he appeared in just 16 games for the defending Eastern Conference champions because of an ankle injury. "I think it can pose problems, but we can work on it a little more". "That's what our expectations are: come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win". Who knows if he can spark something up. "So that's a plus".

Rose was waived by the Utah Jazz on February 10 after the team acquired him in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers on February 8.

Rose has been working out since, and this week became a father again - just three days before completing the deal with the Timberwolves, who were willing to wait for his new daughter to arrive before asking him to make the move.

"We just thought he could help the team", the coach said, walking through the ideas that informed the decision to sign Rose up for the rest of the season.

"He was the best player in training camp", Wade said, noting that LeBron James was hurt for most of Cavs camp last fall.

Miami guard Dwyane Wade, a teammate of Rose's earlier this season in Cleveland, said he expected Rose and Thibodeau would reunite. In a league deep with quality point guards, the teams that could use one still were looking for young players to develop first.

"This is how I feel about it, the whole perspective on it", Rose added. "I know you're trying to lure me in here", he said on a day the Wolves wore their dark blues. "I always hate when guys get injured and he has been such a dynamic player in this league".
