Derrick Rose Taking a Leave of Absence, Unsure of Future in the NBA

Is retirement near?

By //Sports

NBA star and MVP award winner Derrick Rose has parted ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers and could be leaving his NBA career behind.

As ESPN reports, Rose has dealt with a series of injuries in recent years and is currently “seriously re-evaluating” his future in professional basketball. Rose has sat out the last seven games, and is reportedly “frustrated with his injuries.” “He’s tired of being hurt and it’s taking a toll on him mentally,” one source revealed to ESPN. Rose’s last major injury was a rolled ankle, which occurred on October 20. At the time, Rose classified the wound as a “jacked-up ankle.”

While adidas and Rose’s partnership still has six years and close to $70 million remaining, that contract would be voided if the 29-year-old chose to exit the NBA. Before his current tenure with the Cavaliers, Rose played for the New York Knicks.

In recent weeks, Cavaliers-related headlines have revolved around Lebron James and new player Isaiah Thomas.
