The Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers are among the teams that have expressed interest in Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose.

Both the Lakers and 76ers are in search of point guard help for the final stretch of the season and playoff run.

The Los Angeles Clippers have also reportedly checked in on Rose, but it was more of a common talk.

Rose has received much more interest this season, now that he is healthy and playing well for the Pistons.

With several injuries that the Pistons have endured and Rose playing well, the veteran guard recently asked for extended minutes.

After getting minutes in the 20s for most of the season, Rose has now played 30-plus minutes in four of his last seven games.

Rose is averaging 18.4 points and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 49.8 percent from the field.
