Veteran point guard Derrick Rose has signed a three-year, $43 million contract with the Knicks in free agency, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Rose completed his second stint with the New York Knicks after being traded to the organization again, this time from the Detroit Pistons. Rose had signed a two-year, $15 million deal with Detroit in 2019.
Rose was once again re-united with head coach Tom Thibodeau in New York and did well, scoring 14.9 points per game and shooting 41.1 percent from behind the arc. Rose primarily came in off the bench for the Knicks and was in the running for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award this past season. In the last three seasons, Rose is averaging 16.4 points and 4.9 assists per game as he transitioned to a bench role.
