Dallas Mavericks Are Serious Are Contenders To Land Derrick Rose


The Dallas Mavericks are trying to add some veteran leadership alongside rookie point guard Dennis Smit Jr, and, according to the New York Post, have emerged as contenders to land Derrick Rose.

Derrick Rose and Dirk Nowitzki on one team? Something that would have been scary for the whole league 5 years ago, is only a marginal note today.

Dirk Nowitzki is 39 years old and in the autumn of his career. Derrick Rose may only be 28, but his knees are 45 and he will never return to the level of play that saw him become the leagues youngest MVP in NBA history.

The Mavericks intend to start Smith Jr. Rose should be acknowledging that his days as an NBA star are gone, and that accepting a smaller role would be help him stay in the league. Becoming a mentor for a great young prospect could also be an inducement for Rose.
