“You have two veteran big-time players that are looking to restore their careers: Blake Griffin, who is a perennial All-Star, and Derrick Rose. Both guys have had some injury history and they’re looking forward to building their careers back,” Weaver said. “That stood out and we’re excited to get them healthy and help us moving forward. “The second piece is the young players on the roster: Sekou (Doumbouya), (Luke) Kennard, Bruce Brown and Svi (Mykhailiuk) and (Christian) Wood. We feel like we have a good mixture of young guys with those two staples to start there.”

Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose part of Pistons' future?

A fresh chapter in Detroit Pistons franchise history is set to be written next season, but new general manager Troy Weaver still sees veteran stars Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose as part of the “plans going forward.” Griffin, 31, is coming off left knee surgery after playing in just 18 games this season. “I’m excited about having the chance to work with Blake,” Weaver, a longtime Oklahoma City Thunder executive, said Monday at his introductory news conference. “Obviously, being in Oklahoma City for the last 12 years, I remember Blake quite well, playing at OU and his family being around there, being from Oklahoma City. So, I’m very familiar with Blake.
Below, read an excerpt from “I’ll Show You,” in which Rose’s love and appreciation for Noah the basketball player and man is evident: “The closest teammate I’ve had-other than Randall in high school-was Joakim Noah, and that’s where Arthur Ashe comes in again. A lot of people don’t mess with Joakim because they think there’s some bad shit that comes with him or just how outspoken he is or whatever. For me, I can respect that, knowing everything about him, like for him to be who he is and act the way he is. It’s an amazing story behind it. I actually want my son PJ to grow up to be like Joakim. You know, a free spirit, a loving guy. Joakim loves people. He’s just a great role model. And his story is special.”
NBC Sports Chicago has announced additional primetime pro game replacement programming as the network will deliver a special week of multi-platform content featuring “Classic” game performances and expanded digital/audio coverage highlighting one of the most talented players in Chicago Bulls history, Derrick Rose. In his seven-season stint with the Bulls, the Chicago native/Simeon Career Academy grad earned numerous league honors including “Rookie of the Year” in 2009, three NBA All-Star Game appearances (2010-12), along with being named the NBA’s “Most Valuable Player” in 2011, becoming the youngest player in league history to earn the award at age 22.
To support doctors, nurses and others who are on the frontlines fighting the coronavirus pandemic, the Detroit Pistons united former and current players together to sing a rendition of a famous Ben E. King song. The Pistons released a video on Wednesday of the former guards — Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton and Dave Bing — along with current guard Derrick Rose singing “Stand By Me” with the Detroit Youth Choir. The video featured each singer performing remotely, in accordance with Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” guideline.

“Oh, I love watching him,” Jamal Crawford said about Derrick Rose. “He’s someone who was written off, someone who was — I think people didn’t give him the proper respect on his name. From different places, different situations. “He’s a Hall of Famer. He’s unbelievable. He’s fun to watch. He’s such a genuine person. I’ll always root for him. I’m like his biggest fan to be honest with you. I love watching him. “Think about that, he knew he was this D-Rose all along, whether he was in Cleveland, whether he was in Minnesota, whatever. Getting waived from Utah…But he knew he was this same guy all along.”
Meanwhile, sources say the Lakers offered a package involving Alex Caruso and draft compensation for Derrick Rose, which was rejected as the Pistons had set a high value on the former NBA MVP. The Lakers stood pat at the deadline — and VP of basketball operations Rob Pelinka instead upgraded the roster post-deadline. The Lakers remain the No. 1 seed in the West at 47-13.
The Pistons will be cautious in deciding when to let Rose play, but the 2010-11 league MVP is expected to make a full recovery and will be reassessed in a few weeks, sources said. Rose, 31, has been the lone bright spot for the franchise this season, but the team is now considering turning the show over to the younger players, a move that would likely improve its draft position, sources said.
Derrick Rose signed a two-year, $15 million deal with the Detroit Pistons this past offseason, and the Eastern Conference team reportedly has no plans to negotiate a buyout with the point guard even though the Los Angeles Lakers were interested in a trade. Brian Windhorst reported as much on The Hoop Collective (h/t Real GM): “No, there’s no chance. He’s under contract for next year at a good number. From what I understand, when the Lakers called the Pistons and expressed an interest in trading for Derrick Rose, the Pistons said ‘Hey, we appreciate you calling, but we’re not trading him. Dwane Casey likes him. We think he’s going to be important for us next year.’ He just wasn’t available.”
The Detroit Pistons rebuffed interest from the Los Angeles Lakers in trading for Derrick Rose. The Lakers have been seeking a perimeter scorer to round out their roster. “No, there’s no chance,” said Brian Windhorst on The Hoop Collective Podcast in reply to a question on whether the Pistons might negotiate a buyout with Rose. “He’s under contract for next year at a good number. From what I understand, when the Lakers called the Pistons and expressed an interest in trading for Derrick Rose, the Pistons said ‘hey, we appreciate you calling, but we’re not trading him. Dwane Casey likes him. We think he’s going to be important for us next year.’ He just wasn’t available.”
Storyline: Derrick Rose Trade?
Davis also said he when he was growing up, Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose inspired him. Rose previously spent eight seasons with the Chicago Bulls and was a three-time All-Star with the team. “The guy I always watched was D-Rose,” Davis said. “That was my guy. … he’s a hero and a legend already in the eyes of the city of Chicago and I believe him. He’s been one of my idols for a long time.”
He opened up about the childhood trauma that he will never forget. “When I was younger, we used to have a lot of things that used to happen in my house and on my block to where I kind of got PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in a way. I’ll be downstairs in the basement doing something and I’d hear somebody playing upstairs and I’d run up there thinking somebody was bursting in our house about to attack my cousin … this girl,” Rose described. “She used to beat up everybody in the neighborhood, like she would beat up somebody and I would think they were coming back for revenge. So any little bumps or sounds in the house, I’m scared, or at night I would hear something and get scared because I was thinking that these people came back.”
Storyline: Mental Health
Young estimated that he changes his number every 5-6 months. Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner said he changes his number “a lot,” which, he added, places him on the lower end of the spectrum. “Some guys, like Paul George, change it, like, every week.” NBA veteran Taj Gibson said he’s had “a bunch of teammates who change their numbers all the time.” He recalled sitting around the Chicago Bulls locker room earlier this decade and hearing teammates shout, “Man, Derrick just changed his number again!” referring to then-Bulls teammate and 2010-11 NBA Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose.
Rose also went into how his relationship with Chicago has improved since leaving the Bulls, when he initially felt like the city “basically turned [its] back on me” following his trade to the Knicks in 2016. “I think it’s repaired well. I just know the chi. My vibrations were low,” Rose told ESPN. “When your vibrations are low, you hear everything, you seek everything, and me seeking or hearing everything. That was just me being attracted to how I was feeling at the time, and that’s negative, so when I changed my vibrations and matured as a person and as a man, that’s when I started to grow and develop who I was as a person and individual and change my character.”
“If the people that criticized him knew him, if they really knew him, they’d have known how much it was tearing him up not to be out there,” Richardson said. “This is a man that has never cheated the game a day in his life, not one. To have it snatched away like that, it had to be the worst thing ever. And that’s also what makes what he’s done since then so sweet. The boy is back to looking the way he did before all of the injuries.”
“I wanted to be around my son, my kids. I know it sounds crazy. I wanted to feel the cold weather and to be a part of that in a way where I’m not involved in none of it but people will feel my presence here, so that’s what it’s about,” said Rose, who is averaging 18.2 points and 5.8 assists on a career-best 49.0% shooting for the Pistons. “I’m enjoying the city — [the activities are] all propaganda,” he added. “Don’t get me wrong, for everybody that’s being a part of events, that’s a great honor and achievement and great accolades, but in the grand scheme of things, all of this is propaganda. It’s man-made, so me knowing that, I feel like I have a better understanding of what I want out of certain things in life and who I’m becoming to give and spread that the way that I want to.”
