NBA trade season is finally upon us and though there haven't been many rumors out there yet, Chris Haynes of Yahoo! is reporting that the Lakers and 76ers are interested in trading for Derrick Rose. Now, if you haven't been paying attention, Rose has been one of the better PGs in the NBA this season and is even picking up some steam for an All-Star selection. While mostly coming off the bench, Rose is averaging over 18 PPG while also dishing out over 5 APG.
Rose has been one of the only consistent players on a struggling Pistons team that might be forced into selling at the deadline. Along with Rose, the Pistons have also been rumored to be shopping Andre Drummond as the deadline nears. While Haynes mentioned that Rose hasn't requested a trade and would prefer to stay in Detroit, it's no surprise that teams like the Lakers and 76ers are interested. He'd be a clear upgrade over what's currently on the roster at the guard position.
With the trade deadline a little more than two weeks away, the Complex Sports team put together a list of five teams that should take a serious look at trading for Derrick Rose before the deadline.
