Pistons sign Derrick Rose

Recommended Posts

3. Derrick Rose, Detroit Pistons (2 years, $15M)

Forget what Rose used to be or what he was when he looked like he was barely hanging onto a job in the league. What he is right now is a guy who just averaged 18 points and four assists on 48 percent shooting, including 37 percent from 3. He is a reliable jump shooter, as crazy as that sounds, and a lot of his burst is back. He's smart. He's experienced. And the Pistons got him on a two-year, $15 million deal. That's eighth-man money. If Rose does what he did last year, a top-six seed is in striking distance in a deeper-than-you think Eastern Conference for Detroit.

Right now he is also a guy that played 51 games and had season ending surgery.

I have a ton of questions about his play and lack of shooting.  But I don't think he will be on the floor enough for any of them to even matter.
