Bucks: Free agent Derrick Rose met with Milwaukee, ESPN reports

July 4, 2017 GMT

Free agent guard Derrick Rose reportedly met with Milwaukee Bucks officials on Monday, league sources told ESPN.

The Bucks have less than $10 million to offer free agents, but ESPN reported that they’re looking to shed salaries. A sign-and-trade deal is also reportedly an option.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that a Bucks spokesman said Monday afternoon that the team would not comment on the report.

Rose played in 64 games for the New York Knicks last season and averaged 18.0 points and 4.4 assists. His season ended early as he needed surgery on his left knee to repair a meniscus tear. It was his fourth knee surgery since 2012.


The Bucks already have a number of capable ball handlers in Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Matthew Dellavedova.
