G - NYK
Derrick Rose has agreed to stay with the Knicks on a three-year deal worth $43 million.
New York has been busy today, retaining Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks while also signing Evan Fournier. Rose had drawn interest from other teams, including a potential return to Chicago, but he will remain with the Knicks where he played very well this past season.

Rose didn't have his best game of the series in Game 4 on Sunday but he was still very good for the Knicks in the new starting role he has had. In the series Rose has averaged 22.7 ppg through the first four games which is more than the Knicks could have hoped for. Game 5 will take place on Wednesday night in NYC.

Rose got the start in Game 3 and didn't disappoint as he was the most consistent and reliable Knick player on Friday night. With R.J. Barrett and Julius Randle both struggling it was up to Rose to take charge and he did even though his team still lost by 11. Game 3 is on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.

It's great news for anyone who has Rose in DFS, as the minutes with the starting unit is a sure boost to his value. Elfrid Payton shouldn't be in any DFS lineups anymore as it has become clear Rose is the preferred point guard in New York. Rose is currently averaging 38 minutes per game, scoring 21.5 points with 4.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists thus far in the playoffs.
Derrick Rose scored 26 points (9-21 FG, 2-3 3PT, 6-6 FT) to go along with four rebounds and four assists in the Knicks game two win Wednesday over Atlanta.
Rose is the only reason why the Knicks were down by 12 points at halftime and not at least 20 points. After entering the game at about the seven-minute mark of the first quarter, Rose played just about the rest of the first half (39 minutes in total), dropping 14 first half points, including a few crucial baskets when it looked like the Hawks might run away with the game.
