The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be adding a former MVP to the roster.
Free agent point guard Derrick Rose has "committed to sign" with the defending Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers, according to The Vertical.
The pact is expected to be a one-year, $2.1 million deal, according to ESPN.
In one season with the Knicks, Rose appeared in 64 games. He averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 32.5 minutes.
News of Rose joining the Cavs comes as trade winds swirl around starting point guard Kyrie Irving.
Drafted No. 1 overall in 2008, Rose spent the first eight years of his career with the Bulls and won the 2010-11 NBA MVP.
