Derrick Rose remains with the New York Knicks after the Minnesota Timberwolves walk out of Ricky Rubio trade.

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone and Derrick Rose is still a member of the New York Knicks.

The Knicks had been in talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves about trading Rose for Ricky Rubio. According to the Associated Press, the Knicks were interested in forward Nemanja Bjelica, in addition to Rubio. In the end, the Knicks were willing to do a straight Rose for Rubio trade but the Timberwolves balked and walked away, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Rose was acquired by the Knicks from the Chicago Bulls last June. He is averaging 17.7 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.9 rebounds this season, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday. Rubio is averaging 8.9 points and 8.4 assist this season.

This year is the second year in a row that the Knicks didn’t make a deal before the trade deadline. The Knicks are 23-34 and in 12th place in the Eastern Conference.
