Derrick Rose To Join Timberwolves For Rest Of NBA Season

Derrick Rose To Join Timberwolves For Rest Of NBA Season

And they were jokes because people did not believe that signing Rose (or Noah, for that matter) was a good idea.

This move reunites Rose with Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau, who was Rose's coach during their time together with the Chicago Bulls.

Minnesota will be the fourth team Rose plays for, and technically his fourth franchise in the last 11 months.

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. "Watching this 6'2" guard dunk on people and lead his team to victory was enough to give you goosebumps [VIDEO]. He has not been the same since this injury, both mentally and physically. Rose was traded to the Utah Jazz in a three-team trade that landed the Cavaliers George Hill and Rodney Hood.

The question is - how big of a factor will he be?

It's a huge reunion in Minnesota because Rose will also play alongside former Bulls' teammates Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson.

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.

It's fair to wonder how much Rose can help a team that had only 15 games remaining after Thursday.

Rose has proven to be an effective scorer as well as an excellent floor general, making others around him better.

- The Minnesota Timberwolves are signing point guard Derrick Rose for the final 16 games of the regular season. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. I'm not here for stats or anything like that.
