The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a desperate need of another great player that could help them win the NBA title next season. After the Golden State Warriors re-signed Kevin Durant this summer and brought their entire championship roster back together, it became evident that they are the favorites to win the championship again next season. The Cleveland Cavaliers know this, and they are looking for ways to improve and get better. Earlier this week it was reported that LeBron James is concerned about the way the Cavs handled this offseason and is frustrated with the team's inability to acquire quality players.

The biggest move the Cavaliers have made so far this summer is acquiring Jeff Green.

Cleveland recruiting former MVP

On Thursday night it was reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to add a former league MVP to their roster. Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Derrick Rose is seriously considering joining the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose became a free-agent this summer, after playing for the New York Knicks last season. Rose played 64 games for the Knicks during the 2016/2017 season and averaged 18.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. He played an average of 32.5 minutes last season and shot 47% from the field.

Rose was the number one overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, drafted by the Chicago Bulls.

He spent his first seven seasons with the Bulls, and in 2011 he became the youngest league MVP in NBA history. During the impressive 2010/2011 campaign Rose averaged 25.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game as he ended up with the MVP award. No doubt that he would be a great addition for the Cavaliers, as he would be the backup point guard for them.

Rose will turn 29 in October and he still has a lot of good basketball in front of him, if he's able to stay healthy. Also, playing alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the Eastern Conference would increase Rose's chances of winning his first NBA title. It is believed that the Cavs have offered Rose a one-year contract worth around $2 million, but no official deal has been made yet.

Troy Williams joins the Rockets

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Houston Rockets have agreed to a three-year contract with Troy Williams. Williams played for the Memphis Grizzlies last season, and he was a free-agent this summer.

It is still unknown how much is the deal worth, but reportedly only the first year of the contract will be guaranteed. Williams is a 6-foot-7, versatile forward. In 24 games last season with the Grizzlies he averaged 5.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
