Report: Rose Accepts LeBron's Invite; Bledsoe to Join Workouts

LeBron James and Derrick Rose will be teammates in Cleveland next season.

And the two former MVPs will participate in workouts together this week in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Soon after Rose agreed to terms with the Cavs on Monday, LeBron tweeted:

Another NBA player who will reportedly take the floor with LeBron and Rose in Sin City is Suns guard Eric Bledsoe.

Why is that interesting?

Well, Bledsoe and LeBron share the same agent -- Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.

And several national NBA reporters have mentioned Bledsoe when looking at potential deals involving Kyrie Irving.

Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists over 66 games last season, but shot below 34 percent from 3-point territory last season.

The 27-year old does have injury concerns:

- 40 games in 2011-12
- 43 games in 2013-14
- 31 games in 2015-16

And he was shut down in mid-March last year because of ongoing knee soreness.

Bledsoe will make $14.5 million next season and $15 million in 2018-19.
