Free agent point guard Derrick Rose has signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers according to ESPN.

As per Chris Haynes report, Rose is expected to make the veteran minimum of $2.1 million for his services.

Derrick Rose was voted the NBA’s Most Valuable Player back in 2011 but has been plagued by knee injuries ever since.

Last season, Rose averaged 18-points, 3.8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game as a member of the New York Knicks.

Rose played in 64 games during the 2016-2017 NBA season and posted a 47.1 percent shooting average, his best since 2009-2010.

The signing of Rose does not come as a shock, as the Cavs are expected to part ways with an unhappy Kyrie Irving later this summer.

The Golden State Warriors are having a historic NBA Playoffs.

The California-based franchise became the first team in NBA history to sweep their way to an NBA Finals birth going a perfect 12-0.

The Warriors most recently disposed of the San Antonio Spurs, this after eliminating the Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers respectively.

Golden State’s star guard Stephen Curry has had an interesting post-season. The three-point machine seems willing to play any role needed in order for his team to emerge victorious this playoffs.

Curry has played five games this post-season in which he has scored 23 points or fewer.

With that said, Curry has had a ton of options to work with offensively, including power forward Kevin Durant.

As for Cleveland, the Cavaliers have also put together an incredible playoff run.

The Cavs swept both the Indian Pacers and Toronto Raptors to begin their post-season.

The squad, led by LeBron James, then defeated the Boston Celtics in five games to capture the Eastern Conference title.

“King” James and Cleveland’s star guard Kyrie Irving will have to perform at their very best in order to repeat as NBA Champions when they square off with Golden State in this years finals.

Who do you think will win this year’s NBA Finals rematch?

LeBron James put on a stellar performance in game 1 against the Toronto Raptors, leading his Cleveland Cavaliers to a 116-105 victory.

“King James” finished the game with 35 points, 4 assists and 10 rebounds, and was clearly the best player on the floor for either team.

The Raptors had no answer for James, who made over fifty percent of his shot attempts including two clutch three pointers.

LeBron took things to another level when he took a beer from a fan on the sidelines and pretended to drink it while still on the court.

Game two of the series takes place tomorrow night in Cleveland.

If Toronto is to have any hope of upsetting the defending NBA Champions, they will have to find a way of shutting down LeBron James.
