Cavs in Serious Talks With Derrick Rose

A report on Thursday afternoon from ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski indicates that National Basketball Association free agent Derrick Rose and the Cleveland Cavaliers are in talks for a one-year deal.

While those talks continue, Rose is also meeting with the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes and Ramona Shelburne. However, there is apparently one former MVP that could do just that, and - the Cavs hope - salvage their offseason.

If Rose joined the Cavaliers, it would mean that between them, Golden State and Cleveland would have every NBA MVP from 2009 through 2016.

Cleveland would give him the best chance to win a title and the Lakers would have the role best fit for the veteran point guard.

Rose, the former NBA Most Valuable Player in 2011 for the Chicago Bulls, had struggled in the recent years due to significant injuries and off-court troubles.

Rose had his strongest season in years, putting up 18.0 points per game and 4.4 assists in 64 games for the New York Knicks.

Could Derrick Rose actually make a return to the Chicago Bulls?

D-Rose to the Cavs on a one-year deal seems ideal for both parties. The Bulls are in a full rebuild and they already have three point guards who can't hit treys, so adding another would be a head-scratching move. But Cleveland has much more incentive to set a hard line.
