Knicks Land Rose in Deal With Bulls and Other Moves
NEW YORK (AP) — Just call him Broadway Derrick Rose.
The New York Knicks have acquired Rose from the Chicago Bulls in a multi-player deal. The Knicks also received guard Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick from the Bulls for center Robin Lopez and guards Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant.
Rose was a three-time NBA All-Star and the 2011 MVP during his eight years in Chicago. However, he's played just 166 games over the last five seasons after suffering a severe knee injury during the 2011 playoffs.
Rose averaged 16.4 points in 66 games last season.
Hill to Jazz, Teague to Pacers
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Pacers have traded George Hill to Utah and acquired Jeff Teague in a three-way trade with Atlanta. The Hawks received the No. 12 overall pick in Thursday night's draft.
Hill will fill a huge need for the Jazz if point guard Dante Exum is slow to recover from a torn ACL that forced him to miss the entire 2015-16 season. Hill averaged 12 points and 3 ½ assists for the Pacers last season, while Teague gave the Hawks 15.7 points and 5.9 assists a game.
Hill and Teague both have one year left on their current deals.
