Is your favorite basketball team interested in Derrick Rose? Well then they’re in luck! Because the former league MVP is reportedly only receiving 10-day contract offers at the moment. The report goes on to state:
“With Thursday’s deadline for free agents to be playoff eligible, the phone has yet to ring with anything approaching a significant offer, multiple league sources told Bleacher Report.”
One western conference executive would weigh in: “The injuries and lack of enthusiasm to play hurts him.”
Obviously, his history of injuries are a factor. But his enthusiasm to play? Here’s a little bit more from the BR report:
“But the second part? That’s where it’s impossible to get into the mind and heart of an athlete who has endured the sufferinga��and betrayal from his own bodya��that Rose has.
“And it’s why, to me, the video of Rose dutifully floating off-balance, left-handed, short-range jumpers toward the rim with a Random Joe flagging down his rebounds speaks to the man’s desire not to give up yet.”
But that’s not all. A person close to Rose would weigh in with what they feel is an issue.
“Everyone’s holding on to him being the MVP. He knows what he can do in this league. It’s just a matter of trying to find the right fit for him and his talent. He’s not trying to go into a developing situation or trying to find out who is he is. He knows who he is as a player.”
But there’s nothing doing. Rose is a free agent, and it’s likely to stay that way. Meanwhile, you have the Bucks signing players likeA�Shabazz Muhammad.
On the season, Rose is averaging just 9.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists. It’s clear that his best days are far behind him, but this is still a pretty rough way to go out.
