In a surprising turn of events, Derrick Rose has been signed to play with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the rest of the year, and will be reunited with his old coach, Tom Thibodeau.

As we all know, Rose has been a free agent since being traded to the Utah Jazz and being waved from their roster on February 8th, 2018. The Wolves current guard Tyus Jones has agreed to play backup to the Veteran.  We asked Egan Smith ‘21 about his views on this addition to the Wolves roster. It has been a long time since we have seen the old NBA Star version of Derrick Rose.

“Rose is not capable of being a star again because the dude is out of his prime,” Smith said.

Rose has has a crazy few months being traded around and dropped from the Jazz’s Roster before even practicing with them.

“If they were willing to go through the acquisition they should have at least seen what they’re working with,” Smith said.

The NBA is showing a bleak future for Rose and he may be looking at possible retirement soon.

“He’ll retire out of free agency in about four years,” Smith predicted.

Rose does show some potential and use for the Timberwolves as of now.

“The young talent on the team will be able to follow and learn from Rose.”

The other upside of Rose being added to the Wolves is the reuniting of Rose and coach Tom Thibodeau, which Egan Smith thought would impact the playstye of the team.

“Having connection with coaches, especially ones that played well with.”

Hopefully this deal will reignite Rose’s career and help the Timberwolves reach the playoffs while Jimmy Butler is out with a knee injury.
