Former MVP Derrick Rose is once again establishing an impressive performance in the 2019-20 NBA season. In 35 games he played with the Detroit Pistons, the 31-year-old point guard is averaging 18.0 points and 5.8 assists while shooting 48.8 percent from the field and 32.4 percent from beyond the arc. However, with the Pistons struggling to consistently win games, fans may not see Rose in action in the 2020 NBA Playoffs.
Rose’s fate in the 2019-20 NBA season could change if the Pistons would trade him to a legitimate title contender before the 2020 February NBA trade deadline. Once he becomes officially available on the trade market, one of his top favorite landing spots is the Los Angeles Lakers. In his recent article, Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report predicted Rose to rejoin his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James in Los Angeles this season.
