Doesn't change anything defensively, offensively he's another ball stopper who can't shoot.

Off the bench he's good for 15-20 mpg. Rose is a decent player, but I'm just talking about him helping the Cavs beat the Warriors.

The best case scenario for Cleveland is Derrick Rose decides to commit himself to becoming a good defender. He's not really a system player offensively because he can't shoot, and he's not going to have the ball enough in his hands to become a great pick and roll player again. He still has enough athleticism to become a problem.

Derrick Rose is essentially the same size as Steph Curry. In a perfect world, he stays healthy and dedicates his off-season to becoming a plus defender. At this point, Cleveland needs as many athletic defenders as possible to throw at Steph. He's not going to be an offensive game changer. If he can't play defense, he's not a factor. Though he does bring more to the table than Jose Calderon.

Perfect fit for both sides. He moves the needle slightly for the Cavs. Enough to get past the Dubs? No. But that player isn't available for Cleveland.

18 PPG on 47% shooting coming to your bench. Not too bad.

I'd be alright with him on the veteran's minimum off the bench.

I am not a Derrick Rose fan whatsoever. I trashed him a bit before he joined the Knicks and thought he was finished. His year with the Knicks somewhat surprised me.

I'll take him since he should be an upgrade over Calderon. Still doesn't put us near GS.

i guess as a bench piece who can provide scoring bursts it's an alright move. But is that what CLE needs? Big picture -- no.

terrible.

Why would you even sign Calderon in the first place? Front office is a mess without direction.
Im guessing Cavs will offer their 2.4 mini MidLevel. Rose is useless vs GSW. Cavs would have been better off signing Rondo, Mbah, Thabo, or Javale.

They better hope Cedi Osman can be a legit role player for them.

This is pretty funny. I'm assuming you didn't watch him play much last season, but as someone who literally watched every game he played in, I can tell you with 100% certainty what you're hoping for here is a pipe dream.

Rose is literally the worst defender I've watched play since... wait for it... Jose Calderon haha.

Yeah there won't be any "throwing" Rose at Curry on D. If Rose is defending Curry you better just hope Curry doesn't break his ankles permanently.

Rose can't move laterally. At all. That's the beginning and end of it.

Lakers are getting in on him too. They'll probably try to add him to the package for Wade. They've been trying to trade for Wade since he opted in.

Cleveland understands they need to be able to defend against GS right? Everyone sees a big name go to a good team and assume it's a great fit. This is no different. This really doesn't solve the problem or help it.

Unless D.Rose traded his soul for new knees this isn't going to matter.

It's between the Lakers Cavs and Bulls

If the Cavs are looking for a free agent veteran guard, they should be targeting Tony Allen, not Derrick Rose. Allen could make a legitimate difference for them and would help fix a lot of their deficiencies on the defensive end.

Yeah 47% is nice but majority of that is within 3 to 5 feet from the basket. Long as this takes his name away from the Bucks i'll be happy.

Say goodbye to any finals appearance next year... They are going away from their strengths by adding horrid defenders in Williams/Korver and now top 3 worst defender in basketball... I cant understand the logic of this team... Not kidding this is the nuclear move that blows it all up.

Ok player. Not a great fit. For the minimum it's not a huge deal.
