China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Free-agent point guard Der­rick Rose and the Cleve­land Cava­liers are in se­ri­ous talks on a po­ten­tial one-year con­tract, ac­cord­ing to ESPN.

How­ever, ESPN later re­ported Rose met with the Los An­ge­les Lak­ers on Thurs­day, and they are try­ing to sell Rose on the idea that he will get more play­ing time and more money with the Lak­ers.

Rose, 28, av­er­aged 18 points, 3.8 re­bounds and 4.4 as­sists on 47 per­cent shoot­ing in 64 games for the New York Knicks last sea­son.

Cleve­land is lim­ited in what it can of­fer Rose, who made $21.3 mil­lion at the Knicks last sea­son.
