Sources: Derrick Rose, Cavaliers discussing one-year deal

Free agent Derrick Rose is in serious talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year contract, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Rose has met with several teams over the last three weeks, including the Milwaukee Bucks and LA Clippers, but he has gained momentum on a deal with the Cavs in the last several days, sources said.

The Cavs are believed to be offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million for the upcoming seasons to play with Kyrie Irving in the team's backcourt.

Rose averaged 18 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists on 47 percent shooting in 64 games for the New York Knicks last season.
