Following news that Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland, the Cavaliers have picked up another point guard… in Derrick Rose.
The free agent guard has reportedly reached an agreement with the Cavs for a one-year deal, with a veterans minimum salary of $2.1 million. The former MVP is expected to sign his contract as early as Tuesday (July 25).
James welcomed Rose via Twitter on Monday night (July 24).
