BREAKING: Pistons sign Derrick Rose to two-year deal

New, comments

Deal would pay Rose roughly $7.5 million per season

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Minnesota Timberwolves Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons have come to terms on a contract with free agent Derrick Rose on a two-year contract worth $15 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Rose had a mini career resurgence last season in Minnesota as backup. He shot 48 percent from the floor including a career-high 37% from 3. He will not be an efficient floor spacer but he shot 65% at the rim with 30% of his shots coming in the restricted area.

Rose is a slasher and scorer, and that is something the Pistons were sorely lacking. The contract means there is essentially no chance that the Pistons will re-sign Ish Smith.

We will have more as it comes.
