According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Derrick Rose are in serious talks for Rose to join the team on a one-year deal. Rose has had meetings with the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers, and Los Angeles Lakers. He has also been linked to the Minnesota Timberwolves However, according to Ramona Shelburne and Chris Haynes, the meeting only lasted three hours.

Deal would mean he wants to win

The Cavaliers already have a point guard in Kyrie Irving. If Rose came to Cleveland, then he would have to back up Irving or find a way to play alongside the All-Star.

Rose was the New York Knicks starting point guard and averaged 18.0 points and 4.6 asssists.

The deal is reported to be worth $2.1 million. Playing for a contender is something that is important to him. Playing in Cleveland would allow Rose to play close to his family. Signing Rose would mean that the Cavaliers would add $6.4 million to their luxury tax bill.

Rose's best chance of going after a championship would be with the Cavaliers. If Rose is willing to take less money, the 2011 MVP would greatly help the Cavaliers. The Cavaliers signed Kyle Korver and Jeff Green to the team as their only moves this offseason. Rose, Irving, and JR Smith would be a three-headed monster in terms of guard play.

Rose is a drive first guard that could set up players like Smith and Korver. There's also playing with LeBron James, which would help.

What would Bulls fans think?

Rose spent the first seven years of his career in Chicago. Bulls fans gave their former guard an open reception when he returned with the Knicks. Rose still has family in Chicago as he was a hometown boy.

When Rose was drafted No. 1 overall, he was a hero to most Chicago fans. The trade to the Knicks was something that many fans saw coming, as there was tension between Jimmy Butler and Rose. Now, Butler has been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

When Rose played for the Bulls, there was a pure rivalry between the team and the teams that James played for.

The idea of Rose playing with James might turn off some Bulls fans. Even though Rose does not play for the Bulls, nor will he likely ever return, you can still see many Rose jerseys around the city.

On the other hand, fans might be more understanding since he wants to chase after a championship. Rose brought the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals, but couldn't beat the Miami Heat -- the first year James played in Miami.
