Derrick Rose, the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player, cleared league waivers Monday and became a free agent, league sources told ESPN.

There’s some interest in Rose, but no team has yet to make him a firm offer to sign him for the rest of the season, league sources told ESPN.

Washington has considered the possibility of Rose in the wake of John Wall’s extended absence after knee surgery, but is looking at other candidates too, league sources said. One of those could be former NBA guard Ty Lawson, who has been playing in China, sources told ESPN.

Rose was waived on Saturday, in the wake of his trade to the Utah Jazz as a part of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ three-team deal, which also involved Sacramento.

Report: NBA Finds No Violation in Cavaliers-McCaw Investigation

Basketball Insiders

Published

on

The NBA has cleared the Cleveland Cavaliers of any wrongdoing in their brief alliance with forward Patrick McCaw.

At the urging of the Golden State Warriors, the league investigated Cleveland’s signing of McCaw as a restricted free agent before releasing him. McCaw played two seasons with the defending champions but did not re-sign with them last summer. The Cavs signed him to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet last month that the Warriors chose not to match.

McCaw played in three games for the Cavs and was waived before his contract became guaranteed. He signed with Toronto last week.

The league said Monday it found “no violation of the league’s collective bargaining agreement, including the anti-circumvention rules.”
