It’s like Derrick Rose and Coach Thibodeau were handcuffed by the waist when the Veteran Guard yesterday signed the dotted line in a $ 43 million deal that will bring him to the New York Knicks for the next three years, Adrian said Wojnarowski from ESPN.
After averaging 14.2 points in 22.8 minutes in just 15 appearances for the Detroit Pistons last season, Rose joins the Knicks roster in a mid-season trade in February and ultimately plays an important role in anchoring the New York Bank.
In the postseason, Rose only improved his game, averaging 19.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game at 47.6 percent shooting and 45.1 percent from the 3-point range and appeared New York’s to be most dominant force.
Although Rose has struggled with injuries since his cruciate ligament rupture in 2012, his leadership skills and ability to do the work on the floor have still proven himself an integral part of the Knicks puzzle.
On Monday, the Knicks Roses would reaffirm importance to their mission.
