Derrick Rose Might get waived by Knicks
Lot of chatter around NBA that the Knicks might also release Derrick Rose. Would Phil really do that? Clearly, he's not afraid to be fired.

This is a wild move if they this is true. The Knicks just released Brandon Jennings and now there are talks of doing the same to Rose. B.J. Armstrong just two days ago to the New York Post said that Rose was committed to the Knicks long term.
He has been on the block pretty openly to get him traded before the deadline but a deal was never reached. Rose will be a free agent this summer.
While carrying good numbers this year there is also some terrible ones. When Rose is on the court the Knicks defense takes a massive hit in having a defensive rating of 111.6 which is really bad.
Also Derrick was shooting very bad from behind the arch. Hitting only 23.6% of 3’s this season. It looks like they are bailing on their little experiment before it even starts. I love to see the Knicks go down in flames.
