Former NBA MVP Derrick Rose could be in a Timberwolves jersey sooner than later. 

According to Mark Stein of the New York Times, Rose will likely be placed on waivers after being traded from Cleveland to Utah. If he clears waivers the Wolves will attempt to sign him. 

If the Wolves do add Rose, it would create a cluster at point guard considering Jeff Teague currently starts and Tyus Jones plays 12-18 minutes a game as the backup.
