Roy Hibbert Don't Write Off Derrick Rose ... Still Got Talent!

According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Rose is signing with the Wolves for the rest of the season.

Things didn't work out as expected as he continued to deal with injuries which took away significant time away from the court from him.

Rose signed a 1-year, $2.1 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers over the summer.

Because Rose cleared waivers prior to the March 1 deadline, he will be able to suit up for the Timberwolves if they make the playoffs.

Even back at his career best, Rose played an inefficient style of basketball. However, the honeymoon ended quickly after the guard only suited up for 16 games.

In Minnesota, Rose will be united with his former coach, Tom Thibodeau, who oversaw his best years as a pro with the Chicago Bulls.

He rejoins former Chicago Bulls teammates Taj Gibson and the now injured Jimmy Butler.

But Rose is already onto his fourth team at age 29, which is a reflection of his downfall due to injuries over the past several years. From Chicago, he was traded to the New York Knicks, to the Cleveland Cavaliers, to the Utah Jazz, and finally, to the Minnesota Timberwolves. He's joining a Timberwolves team bidding for its first postseason trip since 2004, and entered play Thursday holding the sixth seed in a very close Western Conference race - where four games separate the eight teams from third place to 10th. I'm not here for stats or anything like that. "That's what our expectations are: come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win. I just want to win and help this team and franchise win". He had three points and three assists.
