The Lakers will consider signing Derrick Rose in the offseason, according to Evan Massey of NBA Analysis Network.
Rose will be a free agent this summer and he is expected to attract interest from both the Knicks and the Lakers.
“The Knicks would absolutely love to bring (Derrick) Rose back for another year or two. He was a perfect fit and Tom Thibodeau would like to keep him on the roster.
However, there will be plenty of other suitors, including the Lakers, who will be looking for a new point guard with Dennis Schroder leaving town. L.A. is a serious threat to land Rose,” Massey reports.
Rose played in 35 games with the Knicks following his trade from the Detroit Pistons. He averaged 14.9 points per game, along with 4.2 assists and 2.9 rebounds.
He helped New York claim the fourth place in the East and advance to the playoffs, where his team lost to the Atlanta Hawks (4-1). Rose had 9.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 4.0 boards vs the Hawks.
For their part, the Lakers are set for changes to their lineup after their first-round exit in the playoffs.
