Derrick Rose is among the most talented players the NBA has seen in the past decade.

CBS SPORTS: THE TOP 25 NBA FREE AGENTS IN 2018
After lighting up the league his first three years in Chicago, it's been a series of setbacks for the 28-year old former No. 1 overall pick, who hasn't played a complete season since 2010-11. The last two seasons, however, have shown he can still be a solid contributor.
Rose started 66 games for the Bulls in 2015-16 and averaged 16.4 points and 4.7 assists. He followed that up with a 64-game season for the Knicks in 2016-17 where he bumped his scoring average to 18.0 and added 4.4 assists per game.

He remains a free agent, and several contenders -- or teams hoping to contend -- are among those interested. Reports have linked him to the Cavs, the Bulls and the Lakers.
Sportsbook BookMaker.eu has released odds for where Rose will be at the start of the 2017-18 season:
Los Angeles Lakers +150
Cleveland Cavaliers +250
Milwaukee Bucks +500
Los Angeles Clippers +1000
The Lakers are hoping to not only find veteran free agent help at point guard, but also to acquire a name that might help lure LeBron James to L.A. in 2018.
James' current team is looking for a way to salvage an underwhelming offseason.
Adding Rose won't make up for missing out on Paul George and other top targets over the past month, but he would give Cleveland another recognizable piece in its quest to overtake the Warriors.
