Terrible money move but if you don't have passion for the game anymore you are just going thru the motions.

He looks like a guy that possibly has a substance abuse problem to me and I am unfortunately pretty good at spotting that.

I wish him the best, he is still a young man and hopefully has saved some money.

That's not something I'd given any thought. With all the injuries he's had opioid dependency is something to be considered. Hope you're wrong on this one.

Me too. I kinda chalked his mental issues up to the great heights he's fallen due to injuries. His trajectory before injuries was all-time great level. Like top 5 PG ever level.
And even though he was found not liable on all counts. That very public sexual assault case probably hurt his mindset as well.

Reports hint Cleveland could announce Derrick Rose’s return to team Sunday

For the past week, Derrick Rose has been away from the Cleveland Cavaliers taking stock of his basketball career and deciding if he wants to keep pushing through injuries. Even LeBron James‘ presence hasn’t been enough to boost Rose back to anywhere near his former self, and Rose reportedly weary of all the injury rehab he has had to go through (it’s a sprained ankle right now that has him out), but there are 80 million or so reasons most people expected him to return to the Cavaliers.

This much we know: There should be an update Sunday.

Told #Cavs are expected to have more information on Rose tomorrow.

What kind of news? Probably that he is going to return to the team, according to Joe Varden of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Cavaliers and estranged point guard Derrick Rose have engaged in “positive” communication and he could be nearing a return to the team.

Both coach Tyronn Lue and general manager Koby Altman said Saturday that the team had spoken to Rose, who left the day before Thanksgiving to consider his basketball future.

But Lue directed all questions to Altman, who said there’d be more information Sunday. Altman declined to confirm Rose’s imminent return, but Lue has said since Rose left that he’d be back.

All this points to a Rose return, although nothing is certain. Rose is never easy to predict, but his return was always likely.

After a self-imposed exile, Derrick Rose flew to Cleveland on Monday morning and will resume rehabilitation on his sprained ankle, clearing the way for his eventual return to the Cleveland Cavaliers' active roster.

Well good. I’m glad he was able to get his mental back together.

Probably realized he wouldn't be cashing those NBA gamechecks and Addidas checks if he left.
