Undrafted PG Chris Crawford signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, including partial guarantee, league sources tell RealGM.

Chuck Swirsky

Good morning Chicago. It's going to be a great day! http://t.co/NkNqkTgypo

Sam Smith

Rose on tournament: "Just going out there, take the shots I normally take, just trying to get the nerves down and play a regular game."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Pau: "I thought he played very well. Handled himself with a lot of class, in great shape, looks real healthy."

Sam Smith

Thibs' Rose bottom line: "We’re not going to overreact when he has a great game. We’re not going to overreact if he has a sub par game."

Sam Smith

Thibs re Rose: "Right now, he’s not finishing his drives as well. I like the way he’s making his moves to get by the initial defender."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Rose: "It was one of those games he didn’t have his rhythm. There are going to be ups and downs. Just get ready, go step by step."

Sam Smith

Rose on asst coach: "Thibs presence is huge with his detail. Everyone is loving the way he’s making sure everyone is prepared for the games.

Sam Smith

Rose on not facing Pau: That’s kind of disappointing. Hopefully he’s there (Madrid). I’ll probably meet with him, have dinner with him."

Sam Smith

Rose: "He’ll no, I’m not worried. I’m used to those (NBA) balls and I’m used to just shooting them. I’ll be fine. I’m shooting the shots."

Sam Smith

Rose on Spain loss: "I was very surprised. I think everyone was, but you can just learn from it. They didn’t come out prepared."

Sam Smith

Rose's bottom line: "All I need is to see one (shot) go down and I’ll be all right. But I’m just happy we got to the championship game."

Sam Smith

Rose on 1-8 shooting: "I think I played all right. Missed almost all my shots, but feeling good we got the win. So I’m not worried."

KC Johnson

Is Rose worried poor FG % will affect him going into NBA season? "Hell no. I just need to see one go down and I’ll be fine."

KC Johnson

Asked Rose if his form on jumper is OK: "I'm good. I’m not worried about that when I get a regular NBA ball in my hands."

KC Johnson

Thibs on Pau: "He handled himself with a lot of class, like he always does. He’s in great shape. He looks real healthy."

KC Johnson

Asked Thibs about Rose's jumper: "You look at how you get them. Are they coming off the dribble or pass? How is the balance?"

KC Johnson

Thibs on Rose: "We’re not going to overreact when he has a great game. We’re not going to overreact if he has a subpar game." Media's job!

KC Johnson

Faried on Spain: "I am disappointed because I wanted to beat them in their own country."

KC Johnson

Faried on Spain: "I just took it as, ‘OK. Once we meet them in the final, we’re going to see what happens.’ We can’t even see what happens."

KC Johnson

Faried on Spain: "Everybody was being arrogant, borderline disrespectful to us, saying we wouldn’t be able to match up vs. their bigs (more)

Mike McGraw

Another easy win for US. Derrick Rose did some good things, but shot wasn't falling -- 4 pts on 1-for-8 FGs in 96-68 win over Lithuania.

KC Johnson

Kenneth Faried said way everybody hyped Spain was disrespectful to U.S. Disappointed won't get chance "to beat them in their own country."

Joe Cowley

If Rose was having the tourney Kyrie was having, Bulls fans would be camping out at the UC.

KC Johnson

DRose finishes 1-for-8 with four points as U.S. advances to World Cup final with blowout of Lithuania.

Sam Smith

USA w/82-56 lead w/ 5:49 left but always time for a first. Davis foul and upset gets T. Cousins in. Yes, Cousins in to calm things.

Joe Cowley

2010 Team USA stint lifted Rose's game to a whole new level. Maybe 2014 is Irving's turn.

Joe Cowley

Kyrie Irving has had the FIBA Tournament that D Rose should have had. Should make Bulls fans a bit more nervous than they were in June.

Sam Smith

No upset alert. Will keep everyone posted.

Sam Smith

After scoreless 1st half, Harden goes off for 16 in 3rd qtr for 76-49 USA lead. That guy can score.

KC Johnson

DRose is 1-for-17 from 3-point range in this tournament.

Joe Cowley

Rudy Gay looking for the red card on this one.

Sam Smith

Rose with a nice highlight cradle-the-ball and reverse layup on fast break. He's back! Oh, we've done that.

KC Johnson

Rose gets first FG in transition after 0-for-7 start. Despite alleged tweak, still badly struggling with jumper.

Chuck Swirsky

Rose on a reverse..USA in a major blowout

Joe Cowley

16 points for the Beard in just the third quarter ... that's three FIBA games for Rose.

Sam Smith

Rose misses another three. Green and yellow Lithuania colors are a bit distracting.

Joe Cowley

So which coach told Rose before this game ... "OK, go back to doing nothing and being passive .... ''

Sam Smith

Harden down hard on foul with USA players jumping off bench. Stern suspends everyone.

KC Johnson

Rose in for Irving at 3:39 mark of 3rd.

Joe Cowley

Meanwhile, that crashing sound you just heard was Lithuania's glass slipper hitting the ground ... thank Boogie for the motivation.

Joe Cowley

So you would rather have E Murphy, M. Teague and Radmonovic sitting in that 11th seat on the bench than Beasley? OK.

KC Johnson

U.S. going for style points now. 18-2 run to open 2nd half. Irving to Davis for the alley-oop.

Joe Cowley

... if he's still up-in-smoke ... release him and no harm.

Chuck Swirsky

They should do away with consolation games.....never understood the mentality.

Joe Cowley

Love how everyone is so anti-Beasley, but were screaming for Jimmer Fever. You bring Beasley to camp for nothing, see what he has ...

Sam Smith

USA w/10-0 start to 2nd half to begin blowing it open. Davis grabbing everything on defensive end and Harden and Curry threes.

Chuck Swirsky

10-0 3rd quarter run...USA busting out.....

Joe Cowley

Beasley could be a guy off the bench who can create his own shot.

KC Johnson

DRose 0-for-6 with two points and three turnovers as U.S. leads Lithuania at half 43-35. trib.in/1xOzfC1

Sam Smith

Rose tied for USA first half plus/minus lead. Rough half for Anthony Davis w/physical play. 2 pts in 10 mins. USA shooting 33 percent

Joe Cowley

Bulls should make a run at Michael Beasley. If Thibs can't get something out of him, well then he's truly run his course in the NBA.

Sam Smith

If the NBA adopts this FIBA ball Rose may have to retire: 0-6 in half and 0-3 on threes. Has three t/os in triple 3

Sam Smith

USA leads 43-35 at end of a good, tough 1st half. Cousins leaves court having eaten two chairs on the USA bench as workers seek replacements

Joe Cowley

43-35 Team USA lead at half, and Rose 0-for-6 from the field with two points from the free throw line. So much for all the Rose breakout!

Sam Smith

Cousins gets into a skirmish as Rudy Gay shoots FT and gets technical. Everyone stunned it took this long.

KC Johnson

Rose playing aggressive again. He's also 0-for-4 with 3 TOs.

Sam Smith

Well, Rose is pushing the ball and forcing the action, but can't get a layup to fall with a lot of banging inside; a lot.

KC Johnson

Check that. Rose in for Harden.

KC Johnson

DRose in for Irving at 4:22.

Chuck Swirsky

Davis- Harden each with 2...Curry with 3.....Rose time?

Joe Cowley

Boogie might be playing guard by the time this reaches the 4th.

Sam Smith

Lithuania repeatedly going at James Harden. Someone was watching Rockets' games.

Sam Smith

Klay Thompson showing in leading USA with 12 points why Warriors wouldn't trade him for Kevin Love. Probably more versatile

Joe Cowley

FIBA refs and Goodell have a lot in common - just making up the rules as they go along.

Chuck Swirsky

21-16 USA end of the 1st quarter. Rose passing well..a bit rusty on the shot.

Sam Smith

Great drive and no look drop off Rose pass to Cousins to end first quarter with USA leading 21-16.

Joe Cowley

Great pass by Rose to Boogie.

KC Johnson

Rose didn't realize how little time remained in quarter as he dribbled up top. Coach K jumped off bench screaming. Rose drove, fed Cousins.

Joe Cowley

Boogie may have just killed a man.

Joe Cowley

Rose scores!!!! Free throws....

Sam Smith

Rose getting into game with good strip, defense to stop fast break and drive for two free throws: 18-13 USA

Joe Cowley

Best move of the offseason just might be Golden State not getting sucked into packaging KThompson for K. Love deal.

Joe Cowley

Can't wait for Kyrie vs. Rose this season. No longer the big brother-little brother matchup we all expected it to be.

Sam Smith

Tough start for Rose: bricks a three, turnover on drive, steps out of bounds getting pass from Thompson, misses layup. Spain kicking selves.

KC Johnson

DRose knocked down a 3-pointer----but his foot was on the sideline as he caught the Klay Thompson pass.

Joe Cowley

Team USA ball movement has already packed and left for America.

Sam Smith

Third USA player with two fouls as Faried also goes out; first real physical game for USA.

Mike McGraw

The fouls are coming quickly in this USA vs. Lithuania game. Rose checks in early as three starters have 2 early fouls.

Joe Cowley

Foul trouble by Harden and Curry gets Rose in the game two minutes earlier than usual ... USA offense rather selfish right now...

Sam Smith

Rose in with 6:56 in first, earliest substitution for him as Krzyzewski not fooling around w/Curry and Harden off to rocky starts. 7-6 Lith

Chuck Swirsky

Rose enters for Harden....
