Derrick Rose wants to re-sign with the Knicks according to his agent B.J. Armstrong.
Armstrong said, “Derrick loves New York and wants to be there, whether it happens is on them; all we can do is be clear.” It is tough to get a read on how the Knicks feel about giving the former MVP a contract especially with the PG heavy draft next week and their rumored interest in Dennis Smith Jr. There have also been several looming rumors involving Ricky Rubio coming to New York since February’s trade deadline. The Knicks would likely serve their team best by passing on Rose and building some more youth around Porzingod as they prepare to attempt to jettison Carmelo to another squad. As always, the Knicks are a team to watch this summer due to all the moving parts and the saga that is a Phil Jackson / James Dolan-run team.
