Derrick Rose signing with Cavaliers on one-year deal

Unlike Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose is committed to the Cavaliers for next season.

With rumors swirling on future status of Irving, Rose has committed to sign with the Cavaliers and completed his physical exam Monday, his agent confirmed Monday. The news was first reported by The Vertical.

Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Kyle Korver, Cedi Osman, and now the 2011 NBA MVP have agreed to join the Eastern Conference champions this offseason after near-misses for Jimmy Butler and Paul George in the trade market.

Rose, 28, averaged 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games with the Knicks last season before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in April. While he still has scoring ability, his health and playing style have made it difficult to find a match this offseason.

Rose will join the Cavaliers on a one-year, $2.1 million minimum deal, according to ESPN, a near-perfect contract for the cash-strapped Cavs.

As long as Doc Rivers surrounds with him the right players, Griffin should have all the room he needs to continue making these high-level reads:

Even something basic like running a dribble hand-off with Griffin can force the defense to make tough decisions. Either Griffin will open up a driving lane by drawing his defender away from the basket out of respect for his midrange jump shot…

The threat of Griffin’s passing will only become greater when he plays center next season. Gallinari is perhaps best suited to play power forward at this stage of his career, and the Clippers can pair them with some combination of Beverley, Williams, Teodosic, Dekker and Austin Rivers in the backcourt. Griffin’s defensive limitations at center will hurt them on that end of the floor, but those lineups should have enough firepower offensively to compete against most teams. It helps that Beverley is comfortable playing without the ball in his hands, having made a career out of being a 3-and-D point guard next to James Harden.

They won the shot battle again 33-28 and kept the Penguins’ lethal power play off the board in three chances.

When Jake Guentzel scored this 13th goal of the playoffs and fourth in three games just 2:43 into the first period, the Predators were on their way to a near-insurmountable 3-0 series deficit. It silenced the crowd, but that didn’t last long.

A struggling Pekka Rinne, 0-7-2 all time against the Penguins with a .778 save percentage in two Final games so far, had the boisterous crowd in his corner and came through with a number of big saves to get to the first intermission.

Roman Josi tied the game 5:51 into the second period and Frederick Gaudreau scored 42 seconds later to send the arena into a frenzy.

Finally, having outshot and outplayed the Penguins in Games 1 and 2 with little to show for it, the Predators’ labor bore fruit.

They won the shot battle again 33-28 and kept the Penguins’ lethal power play off the board in three chances.

In doing so, the Preds improved to 8-1 at home this postseason and, with Game 4 back here Monday, the party isn’t ending in Nashville anytime soon.

Hockey and Nashville right now is like Max Yasgur’s farm: it’s a mass gathering of humanity, though instead of enjoying three days of music, they’re enjoying many days of hockey and music. The only difference is that there is not as much nudity here.

Weber is always ready with a quip, and truth be told he does repeat some of them quite often. However, if the Predators do win the Stanley Cup this month, Weber’s call of the final seconds will come straight from the heart, not from a glib script.

I want to be totally honest with it, explained the 66-year-old Weber. I’ve heard too many scripted calls and it just seems to lack the genuineness that everybody truly wants.
