As expected, the Utah Jazz made it official as they announced Saturday that they have waived Derrick Rose.
Rose and Jae Crowder were traded to Utah on Thursday by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-team deal that sent Rodney Hill of Utah and George Hill of Sacramento to Cleveland.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Rose could wind up with the Washington Wizards, who are without All-Star point guard John Wall for several more weeks after undergoing knee surgery.
