Wolves owner stomps out Derrick Rose speculation

Rose cleared waivers on Monday but has yet to sign.

It's been four days since Derrick Rose cleared waivers and the former NBA MVP remains unsigned.

Marc Stein of the New York Times reported late last week that the Timberwolves would likely attempt to sign Rose, but that hasn't happened yet and it's not going to happen, or so says Wolves owner Glen Taylor.

“If we could find the right person to fit into our team and have some ability to play, get out there on the floor, we are certainly going to look at it,” Taylor told Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune. “We kept one slot open all year long just in case that possibility occurred. But as of today we don’t have anybody in mind.”

Rose averaged 18 points per game in 64 starts with the Knicks last season, but he played sparingly in Cleveland this season before being traded to Utah at last week's trade deadline. The Jazz waived him and nobody picked him up on waivers.

Rose played with Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson under Tom Thibodeau in Chicago, so some analysts have suspected all along that Thibodeau would try to get Rose with his former teammates again.

Without Rose, Minnesota will continue to use a combination of Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones at point guard.
