Free-agent point guard Derrick Rose agreed to a two-year, $ 1

5 million deal with Detroit Pistons, according to ESPNs Adrian Wojnarowski .

While not really returning to his old knee injury MVP himself, Rose rose above expectations in 2018-19. He averaged 18.0 points and 4.3 helped shoot 48.2 percent from the field and 37.0 percent from three point range.

The highlight of Rose season came in Minnesota's 128-125 victory over the Utah Jazz on October 31st. He had the first 50-point game in his career and scored six of Timberwolves' last seven points in the last minute.

His year ended in March when he underwent surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow.

Although Rose clearly found a comfort zone in Minnesota, his decision to leave Timberwolves is not so much a surprise.

He'll be 31 in October, so his value as a free agent will probably never be higher than it is now. As much as Rose could have wanted a return to Minneapolis, he couldn't give Wolves much of a hometown discount while expecting future earnings to make the difference.

Tom Thibodeau was fired as Minnesota's head coach in January as well to take a figure off with whom Rose had a strong relationship.

As much as Rose contributed to the team, lost Rose cannot be a big blow to Timberwolves.

Jeff Teague will probably stay the starting point guard in 2019-20. Teague admitted to the last year of his deal, which will count for $ 19 million against the pay ceiling. In Tyus Jones, Minnesota also has a more than stable backup.

Even after taking Rose out of the equation, the team's backcourt is in good shape.

It won't say anything about the general risk associated with Rose going forward. The flasks sign him on top of this part of his career – expecting injuries and aging – with slow falling returns to follow.

He set career heights in effective target percentage (.518) and true inclusion rate (.557) in 2018-19, by Basketball Reference. It is reasonable to wonder if his improved shooting is one year's blip. Take out November – he shot 27-of-48 from beyond the bow – and three-time All-Star was just a three-point shooter of 27.6 percent.

Should Roses offensive efficiency come back to the average next season, his bad defense becomes even more brilliant. Of 111 point guards, he was 104 in defensive real plus-minus (minus-2.53), per. ESPN.com.

Maybe it will rebound Rose, who will transfer to his first year with the stamps. Detroit must still be prepared for a scenario where he is struggling to repeat the success he enjoyed in 2018-19.

With Reggie Jackson as the established starting point guard, Rose seems likely to get out of the Motor City bench. His ability to create his own shot will be a clear asset to the stamps, especially if he plays with the other unit.
