Former league Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose is set to sign with the defending Eastern Conference champions Cleveland Cavaliers.
According to multiple reports, Rose has already reached an agreement with the Cavs on a one-year veteran minimum deal worth $2.1 million.
In fact, Cavs have met with free agent Rose and his agent B.J. Armstrong where the 2011 MVP already completed his physical exam and expected to sign the contract this week.
NBA superstar LeBron James already took his official Twitter account to welcome his new teammate.
It was known that Rose communicated with James during the process of deciding where to sign and that led him to the Cavs.
If Rose completely joined the Cavaliers, it would mean that between them, Golden State and Cleveland would have every NBA MVP from 2009 through 2016.
Rose last played with New York Knicks last season and he averaged 18 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists on 47.1 percent shooting, his best percentage since the 2009-10 NBA season, in 64 games.
In 2011, Rose became the youngest player in league history to win the league MVP award. In his career, he averaged 19.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and six assists a game.
The 28-year-old point guard has also met the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.
