Rose’s hefty fine for Knicks no-show

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

The New York Knicks fined Der­rick Rose around $200,000 for his mys­te­ri­ous no-show, a re­port said on Thurs­day.

Rose cre­ated a sen­sa­tion on Mon­day when he failed to ap­pear for the Knicks’ 110-96 de­feat to the New Or­leans Pel­i­cans. The New York Post said in a re­port on Thurs­day that Rose had been fined $193,848 — 1/110th of his $21.3 mil­lion salary — mir­ror­ing the for­mula used by the NBA for a onegame sus­pen­sion.

Rose an­gered the Knicks’ man­age­ment af­ter dis­ap­pear­ing with­out no­ti­fy­ing them or ex­plain­ing his ab­sence.
