Former New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose is in serious talks to join the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year deal and also met with the Los Angeles Lakers for three hours, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst.
Rose, who underwent surgery in April to repair a torn meniscus, expressed his desire to remain a Knick to former team president Phil Jackson and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, in June.
The Cavaliers, according to ESPN, are offering Rose a one-year minimum deal worth $2.1 million. Rose earned $21 million last season with New York.
Rose, 28, averaged 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games in his first season with the Knicks last year.
