According to a Thursday morning report from both Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cavaliers are in "serious talks" with free-agent point guard Derrick Rose. Signing Rose would be the first significant move of the Cavaliers' offseason, as the roster has stayed stagnant following an NBA Finals loss to the Warriors.

The former MVP might be on his way to Cleveland. Magic Johnson has reiterated that the team is prioritizing signing a veteran point guard to back up and mentor Lonzo Ball.

Rose, who will turn 29 in October, averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games for the New York Knicks in 2016-17. He ranked second among guards in scoring in the paint last season, averaging a career-best 10.1 points.

According to CBS Sports , one of Ball's faults in his first couple of games was that he was too unselfish. His six turnovers and two personal fouls are mere afterthoughts based on the rest of the stat line.

As mentioned, Derrick Rose was also looking into possibly joining the young and talented Milwaukee Bucks' team.

Rose, of course, won the National Basketball Association regular-season MVP award in 2011, but he was often injured during his tenure in Chicago after tearing his ACL the next season.

The Cavaliers have been relatively quiet in free agency this summer, adding Jose Calderon and Jeff Green but failing to make a big splash. His season ended April 2 after a left knee injury that required the fourth knee surgery of his nine-year National Basketball Association career.
