The Utah Jazz will release Derrick Rose, whom they acquired Thursday in a three-team deal that sent Rodney Hood to the Cleveland Cavaliers — according to Yahoo Sports.
Rose, the youngest MVP in NBA history, is drawing interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are run by his former coach, Tom Thibodeau.

In 16 games with the Cavs, Rose averaged 9.8 points while shooting 43.9 percent from the field.
Rose won MVP while being coached by Thibs and the two have a very strong bond. Current Wolves star Jimmy Butler and forward Taj Gibson were also teammates of Rose in Chicago.
