The New York Knicks are still looking for a point guard. Derrick Rose is still a target, but he’s taking meetings with other teams. On Monday, he met with the Milwaukee Bucks and Wednesday he’s scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the meeting between Rose and the Clippers. The former MVP would be a replacement for Chris Paul. The superstar went to the Houston Rockets after opting in to the final years of his deal.

The Clippers could be deciding between Rose and former Doc Rivers point guard Rajon Rondo.
New York’s point guard options are dwindling. George Hill is now officially unavailable after signing a three-year deal with the Kings. He was a long shot to be a Knick anyway.
The Knicks are reportedly interested in journeyman backup Shelvin Mack. It’s looking more and more like all roads lead back to Rose. Depending on how you feel about the 28-year-old and his oft-criticized defense that could be a nightmare for you.
