Derrick Rose, Cavaliers discussing one-year deal

Whether it will make them a better team or get them over the hump to compete with the dominant Golden State Warriors is another question.

The Cleveland Cavaliers might be on the verge of landing a new bench piece. The deal would put Rose as Kyrie Irving's backup and place him alongside four-time MVP and three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James. Rose is now 28-years-old and entering his ninth season in the league after spending most of his career in Chicago, and just last season in NY. Rose has found a soft free-agent market after an up-and-down season with the Knicks. His stats weren't terrible in his one season in NY, but he played very poorly defensively and struggled to shoot the ball for most of the season. The former NBA MVP put up career averages of 19.5 points, six assists, and just under four rebounds per game. He showed that he could still play in the National Basketball Association, getting to the rim and finishing. Rose shot a respectable 47 percent from the field, his highest mark since the 2009-10 season. His season was cut short in April by a torn meniscus in his left knee.

However, durability is still a huge issue for him as he can not stay healthy during the National Basketball Association season. Rose, whose career has been sidetracked by injuries, could sign a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum, according to the person, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.

Fans can only wish him the best as he wants to continue playing under his own power.
