With the Knicks now focused on their summer following a successful year in which they made the Eastern Conference Semifinals, one of the key areas to address is Rose‘s future.
The veteran guard has a $15.6 million team option for the 2023/24 season, which is quite a lot for a player who has appeared in just 27 regular season games.
Common sense dictates that New York will reject that team option with Rose subsequently hitting free agency.
“Obviously, they’re not going to take the team option, and he’s going to go to free agency,” Bondy said. “… As for the Bulls, I saw it perfectly.”
Rose, of course, began his career with the Bulls in 2008 and went on to become one of the most dominant players in the league, winning the 2011 MVP award.
