Derrick Rose and the Milwaukee Bucks apparently have mutual interest in each another.
Derrick Rose is one of the top free agents left on the market, and if everything works out, he might not be a free agent much longer.
NBC Milwaukee’s Lance Allan is reporting that Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said Friday that Rose “has interest in Milwaukee and we also have interest in him.”
According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, the two sides could reportedly meet as soon as this weekend to discuss a possible deal.
While Rose is a shell of his former MVP-caliber self, he can still be a productive contributor and a worthy starter. The point guard averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds last season in 64 games and shot over 47 percent from the field playing alongside Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Last season’s numbers are even more respectable when you remember he did all of it playing for one of the most dysfunctional franchises in all of sports—the Knicks.
