After Not Showing Up For Work, Derrick Rose Wants a Raise Next Year in The Tune of $150M
Monday night at MSG, New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose was not in the building and no one locate his whereabouts as he wasn’t answering his phone calls nor responding to text messages.
The next day, Rose stated he had a ‘family emergency’ that required him to return to his hometown of Chicago immediately. The Knicks still fined him anyway.
After a no-call, no-show on Monday, reports out there are stating Rose is seeking a huge raise this offseason in the tune of a 5-year, $150 million max contract, according to ESPN.com’s Ian Begley.
“And then there is the potential price tag. Some close to Rose have told friends he will seek a max contract this summer. For Rose, that pact would be for five years and nearly $150 million.
The Knicks would need to use nearly all of their cap space to ink Rose to a max contract.”
It’s almost a guarantee the Knicks will NOT be spending that kind of cash on Rose. The former league Most Valuable Player is averaging a modest 17.3 points and 4.5 assists per game.
