NBA Free Agents: Derrick Rose Re-Signs With Knicks on 3-Year Deal

Derrick Rose returns to Knicks on three-year contract originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Chicago Bulls were once rumored to be in the market for a Derrick Rose reunion.

But on the night free agency opened, the 32-year-old point guard agreed to re-up with the New York Knicks on a three-year, $43 million contract, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

Rose continued his late-career resurgence down the stretch of the 2020-21 season with the Knicks under old friend Tom Thibodeau. Now, the two will remain attached at the hip moving forward.

And not for nothing, that's a pretty significant raise on the two-year, $15 million deal (originally signed with the Pistons) he's now exiting. Averaging 14.9 points and 4.9 assists, finishing a Sixth Man of the Year finalist and leading a surprisingly successful team in scoring in the playoffs will do that.

The Bulls, meanwhile, addressed the point guard position in a different way, angling a sign-and-trade for Lonzo Ball, then agreeing to ink Alex Caruso to a four-year contract shortly after.
