New York Knicks

The New York Knicks are getting a new point guard, former Chicago Bulls’ superstar Derrick Rose.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports! dropped one of his trademark “Woj bombs” when he reported that former Chicago Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose is coming to the New York Knicks.

The Knicks will send Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant, and Jose Calderon to the Bulls. Calderon is irrelevant and as much as Knicks’ fans loved watching Grant, he’ll never be a star. It’s Lopez that was the stunner. The Knicks have no starting center.

Will they sign another big, or does this mean Kristaps Porzingis will play more at the five in 2016-17?

Carmelo Anthony played his best ball at the power forward position, when he won the scoring title in 2013.

Maybe both.

We explored both sides of the potential Rose trade for you already, for and against, but none of that matters now because he’s on his way to New York. For one season anyway.
