Derrick Rose could be a free-agent target of Timberwolves

Derrick Rose could be a free-agent target of Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves view Derrick Rose as a potential free-agent target this summer, league sources told ESPN.

Rose, 28, will be a free agent for the first time in his career after spending last season with the New York Knicks.

Rose averaged 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games for New York, which finished the season a disappointing 31-51.

Rose is coming off a meniscus tear in his left knee that required season-ending surgery. At the time of surgery, the Knicks offered a timeline for recovery of three to six weeks, so Rose is expected to be fully recovered at this time.

Rose, the 2011 MVP, has a strong relationship with Timberwolves president and head coach Tom Thibodeau; he played for five seasons under Thibodeau with the Chicago Bulls.

The Timberwolves and Knicks engaged in trade talks for a package headlined by Rose and Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio prior to the trade deadline, but no agreement was reached.
