Bulls Trade Derrick Rose To Knicks In Blockbuster Deal

The Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks made a blockbuster deal before tomorrow’s NBA Draft.

Chicago is receiving Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon in exchange for the 27-year-old Rose, Justin Holiday and next year’s 2nd round pick:

Rose averaged over 16 points and 4 assists per game last season. Multiple knee injuries, however, have slowed down the former MVP winner. Rose will make over $21 million next year before becoming a free agent.

Robin Lopez, the main asset going to Chicago, averaged 10.3 ppg. and 7.3 rpg. last year. The 28-year-old signed a four-year, $54 million dollar deal last year and will likely replace Joakim Noah, a free-agent. Jerian Grant was last year’s No. 19 pick in the NBA Draft.
