After a resurgent season in Minnesota, Derrick Rose is hoping to continue his mid-career rebirth in Michigan. The former Kia MVP and three-time All-Star is expected to meet with the Pistons on Sunday (Monday, PHL time), per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, in hopes of coming to terms on a two-year contract.

Rose averaged 18.0 points on 48.2 percent shooting, including a career-best 37.0 percent from three last season. The former No. 1 overall pick has not played 70 games or more in a regular season since 2010-11, but showed enough staying power with the Timberwolves to garner interest this offseason.
