In the latest NBA rumors, it seems like there is at least one team that wants to give Derrick Rose another shot. The ex-NBA MVP is available on the market after getting waived by the Utah Jazz. Utah acquired Rose in a three-team trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Sacramento Kings.

Staying in the East?

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the organization eyeing Derrick Rose is the Washington Wizards. The current fourth-seeded squad in the Eastern Conference is in need of a court facilitator with John Wall on the sideline. Wall is out as he recovers from a minor left knee surgery he had last January 31st.

In the absence of Wall, Washington is still doing great. The Wizards have won six of their last eight games without him. Stepping up at the point guard position with Wall unable to see action is Tomas Satoransky, who is putting up impressive performances as a temporary starter. Despite the emergence of Satoransky, it is understandable why the Wizards would be interested in signing the "Derrick Rose." It is beneficial to have someone like the 29-year-old on the roster because of his rich NBA experience.

Indeed he has been injury-prone, but when healthy, the Chicago native is a decent point guard who has shown flashes of his old self in the past two years.

However, at the moment, Derrick Rose to the Washington Wizards is just one of many NBA rumors centered on the youngest MVP in league history. It is likely that as days go by, Rose is going to get connected to a few more franchises in need of a point guard.

Potential reunion

Aside from the Washington Wizards, the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly targeting Derrick Rose. Rose joining the Timberwolves is nothing new when it comes to NBA rumors. Many see Minnesota as a possible destination for Rose because of Tom Thibodeau, the present Timberwolves head coach. The two had a remarkable bond during their days with the Chicago Bulls.

When Rose was rising to stardom in the Windy City, it was Thibodeau who guided him. Their duo helped the Bulls become legitimate playoff contenders in the Eastern Conference from 2011 to 2015.

If it is true that the Timberwolves want Rose, then they must compete with the Wizards for him. Luckily for Rose, a playoff appearance is on the horizon. Either he heads to Washington or Minnesota. As mentioned, the Wizards are fourth in the East with their 32-24 record, while the Wolves are fourth in the West at 34-24.
