Rose’s hefty fine for Knicks no-show
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.
