Now, the Washington Wizards and the Minnesota Timberwolves are leading the pack as the tams with the most interest in the veteran guard who is averaging 14.7 ppg this season, according to The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski.
Washington is looking for help as they are playing without John Wall and the addition of Rose could help the Wizards stay afloat in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
Minnesota offers a chance for Rose to reunite with Tom Thibodeau, who coached Rose during their time together with the Chicago Bulls. However, Rose would also be reuniting with former Bulls’ teammate Jimmy Butler, whom he had a rocky relationship with in Chicago.
This isn’t the first time that the Wolves have expressed interest in Rose. Minnesota had trade talks with the New York Knicks when Rose was a member of their team.
Minnesota also had talks with Rose last offseason when Rose was a free agent, but ultimately decided to go with Jeff Teague as their starter and veteran Aaron Brooks as depth behind backup Tyus Jones.
