Derrick Rose to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Rose, a free agent after a rocky season in NY, is in serious talks with the Cavs on a 1-year deal, ESPN reported Thursday.

This news comes shortly after reports that Derrick Rose has been in serious discussion with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

If Rose joined the Cavaliers, it would mean that between them, Golden State and Cleveland would have every NBA MVP from 2009 through 2016. Other teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, are interested in him. The deal would be worth about $2.1 million for the one season and would add $6.4 million to the team's luxury tax bill, bringing it to around $78.2 million next season.

In 2011, Rose was the youngest player in National Basketball Association history to be named the league's MVP while playing for the Bulls.

However, Rose is a liability on defense, so the Cavs won't gain anything on that end of the court when he replaces Kyrie Irving in the lineup.

Rose, 28, averaged 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games with the Knicks.

It was a odd year for Rose.
