DETROIT, Mich. (WLUC) - For all the Bulls fans hoping for a Derrick Rose-Chicago Bulls reunion, they were hit with a tough piece of news on Sunday night, as Rose reportedly agreed to a deal with the Detroit Pistons.
Rose’s deal is reportedly for $15 million over two years and gives a Pistons team that could use more solid guard play a great option.
Over the 2018-19 season with the Timberwolves, Rose averaged 18 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game while shooting a career-best 37 percent from the 3-point line.
The Pistons will be returning incumbent starter Reggie Jackson, but backup point guard Ish Smith is currently a free agent.
The Rose signing would seem to signify that the Pistons are moving on from Smith, who averaged 14.4 points and 5.8 assists per 36 minutes last season. Expect Smith to be added to the short list of names that the Bulls are considering at the point guard position.
