Knicks’ Rose injures knee, out for season

Knicks point guard Derrick Rose reportedly came close to getting traded in February.

Point guard Derrick Rose will complete a disappointing first season with the Knicks on the sidelines.

That’s because Rose tore the meniscus in his left knee and will be out for 6-8 weeks.

According to NBC Sports:

This should also quash any talks of re-signing Rose for the Knicks, at least at the level that Rose has been looking for. The former superstar has reportedly been seeking a huge max deal, but with yet another knee surgery under his belt it’s unlikely that any team in the NBA would be willing to sign him for a considerable long-term contract.

The Knicks are likely to move on from Carmelo Anthony this offseason as well, rebuilding in president Phil Jackson’s effort to return the franchise to relevancy.
