Derrick Rose has not been bought out by the Knicks and remains on the team despite not having played a single game this year.

While the buyout remains unlikely, Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report writes that the Suns have the 34-year-old point guard as their primary target for another ball handler position.

This season the former league MVP is averaging 5.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 12.9 minutes per game.
