Because the 29-year-old cleared waivers prior to the March 1 deadline, he will be able to suit up for the Timberwolves if they make the playoffs, having reportedly agreed a deal until the end of the season.

Derrick Rose will join the Minnesota Timberwolves for the rest of the season.

Rose will be reunited with his former coach Tom Thibodeau, who he played for from 2010-2015.

The 29-year-old appeared in only 16 games for the Cavaliers because of a persistent ankle injury, and he stepped away from the club in November to "seriously" re-evaluate his future in the National Basketball Association, according to ESPN.com's Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin.

He has been plagued by knee injuries, but did average 18 points per game two seasons ago with the New York Knicks. The duo had a spectacular first season, where Ross won the MVP (2011) and the team went to the Conference Finals (lost 1-4 to the LeBron James-led Miami Heat) but things went all downhill from there. Rose has the opportunity to play with a team that has potential, with players like; Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, Jamal Crawford, and Jeff Teague.

Rose had signed a veteran's minimum contract with the Cavs last summer, but struggled with injuries throughout his time with the team.

What kind of role can he play on his new team?

There's no telling how Rose will fit with the Timberwolves roster as a whole, but we already know that he is intimately familiar with his former teammates and with Thibodeau's system. I'm not a selfish player. "Come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win", also according to ESPN. I'm not here for stats or anything like that.

BTW - the Wolves are now 6th in the super-stacked Western Conference, so it's unlikely. but crazier things have happened. "I just want to win and help this team and franchise win".
