Derrick Rose has a modest season so far with 16.4 points, 4.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds in New York.
He is a third option (first time in career he is not a leader) and the Knicks have 9-9 and playoff spot at this moment.
Rose is under a one-year contract and next season he will be a free agent.
Finding out how we’re going to win games, we got 10 new people on the team—it’s not like they had a foundation here and we came right into it. We’re building the culture. We’re building the foundation now. I’m under a one-year contract so of course I want to play the rest of my life here. But it takes time, it takes patience to figure out how every one is going to fit, if it is going to fit and going from there. via Slam Magazine
He has a great game against Russell Westbrook when he scored 30 points with 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Rose will probably seek a max contract and that could be a problem for the New York Knicks.
Phil Jackson already said that he would like to build a team around Porzingis, but Derrick Rose could be a great addition for the Knicks future as a third-option.
