Del Negro, who also has done some broadcasting since leaving the Clippers, loved watching Rose’s resurgence last season. “Just happy he’s back on the court and was productive last year and has a smile on his face,” Del Negro said. “These careers go by fast. Injuries happen. He’s had his difficult share, which has changed the trajectory of his career at times. But I really respect his perseverance and his attitude about coming back. It makes me very happy when I see him play.”
Detroit, though, may have to overpay a touch to land his services. That’s what happens when you’re not a desirable free-agent destination. I also don’t think Curry is the Pistons’ top backcourt free-agent target, but he could be the one they’re left with once the dust settles. Derrick Rose is on the Pistons’ target list, per sources, and his relationship with team vice chairman and front-office decision-maker Arn Tellem, who was Rose’s former agent, could entice him to take Detroit seriously. I believe the 30-year-old Rose, though, wants to be on a title contender.

The 30-year-old guard, who has spent the last two seasons with the Timberwolves, will be a free agent this summer. His agent, B.J. Armstrong, discussed the possibility of Rose returning to Chicago, where his career began, during an interview Monday with 670 The Score. “I think we’re going to look at everything, we want to look at the situation,” Armstrong said. “There isn’t a situation we would not look at because Derrick is still a very capable player. We’ll see what the Bulls have. “There’s no secret, there’s no doubt that in his heart, Chicago will always be there. We’ll see. I don’t know what the Bulls are going to do at this particular time. … If it presented itself, we’d be open to that conversation. We’ll find out in due time.”
