Derrick Rose Reportedly Leaving Cavaliers to Contemplate His Future in National Basketball Association

Derrick Rose away from Cavaliers reportedly weighing future in basketball

It has been quite some time since Derrick Rose was a top-tier National Basketball Association player but the former MVP seemingly carved out a role as a second-unit offensive creator on the Eastern Conference favorite Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rose hasn't resembled that version of himself for some time even though he is only 29 years old, and Wojnarowski noted the "mental toll" of the physical setbacks has led to frustration and questions about whether the point guard even wants to remain in the league. According to a report from Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon, James is more concerned about Rose's well-being off the court than on it. But no matter what happens, LeBron James just wants what's best for Rose, the person.

"I don't think it means too much for the team, but I think more importantly as one of his brothers, that's somebody we got to know these last couple months", James said. "At the end of the day, you can't substitute nothing for happiness". That isn't changing here with his teammate. Battling through injuries, he has only been able to play in seven games for the Cavs.

The Buccaneers defense is going to have nightmares about Jones until they face the Falcons again on December 18. Sanu botched a fake handoff to Tevin Coleman , but regained control of the ball and hit Jones in the end zone.

Rose has not played in a game since November 7 because of an ankle injury that has nagged him all season. This isn't the career anyone expected for him when he was named the youngest MVP ever in 2011. But Rose then missed the entire 2012-13 season after tearing his ACL. A fall from where he once was can not be an easy one.

Rose is averaging 14.3 points on 47% shooting this season for the Cavaliers, and playing 27 minutes a game when healthy as the team awaits the return of newly acquired All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas.

Before the season, Rose was talking about getting a raise on his next contract.
