New Knicks coach, Jeff Hornacek, said he wanted to upgrade the point guard position this summer and the team sounds like they’re trying to swing for the fences and make a blockbuster deal. According to ESPN’s Ian Begley, the Knicks have been having discussions about making a deal to trade for Derrick Rose.


The current players on the Knicks roster at the point guard position leave alot to be desired. Jose Calderon started last year but he was painful to watch most of the time and while Jerian Grant and Tony Wroten are solid young players, neither one of them is ready to start and run the Knicks.

It’s remains to be seen how interested the Bulls would be in making a deal with New York, considering they don’t have many options as far as trade bait to entice Chicago to go for it.

Rose will be a free agent after the 2016-17 season. He averaged 16.4 points on 42.7 percent shooting and 4.7 assists in 66 games last season.

There are still questions about Rose and his durability but if he can stay healthy he would be a clear upgrade for the Knicks if the deal was right.
