Memphis lands Derrick Rose via two-year pact

The Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to a two-year deal with Derrick Rose, per SNY’s Ian Begley. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Rose will ink a fully guaranteed $6.5MM deal.

Rose’s addition serves as a vital one with Memphis looking to reshape their culture. A former league MVP who now is a resonating mentor, he is expected to share his experience around the promising club and guide franchise cornerstone Ja Morant towards a needed change following its recent scandals.
