Cavs reportedly looking to sign Derrick Rose

Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Kyle Korver and Cedi Osman. None of those are big names or big-money acquisitions, but they are all new additions to the Cavaliers roster.

They are reportedly on the brink of another acquisition, only this time, that acquisition is a legitimately big name.

According to ESPN, the Cavaliers are pursuing free agent guard Derrick Rose on a short deal.

Rose averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds as a member of the New York Knicks last season in 64 games, the second most he has played since the 2011 season.

The former MVP has also been in discussions with the Bucks, Clippers and Mavericks this offseason.

That won’t be the case in Houston, and the fact that Anthony is seeking out a situation in which he can team with two top-10 talents can only be taken as an indication that he is ready to reconfigure his game around D’Antoni’s style of play, which has more in common with Team USA’s offense than the offenses Anthony has been in for most of his career.

While Anthony’s problems with D’Antoni’s offense were well-documented, it should be noted that in 2011-12 (D’Antoni was let go with 22 games remaining), Anthony’s assist rate was 21.0 percent, second-highest of his career. He also attempted the most 3s he’d taken to that point in his career, a big step in his transformation as an outside shooter. No matter the D’Antoni-Anthony friction, the numbers show Anthony did make some adjustments to his coach’s style.
