The Cleveland Cavaliers are considering signing Derrick Rose on a short-term deal, according to reports. Neither of which would move the dial much, especially not against competition like the Golden State Warriors.
In addition to the Lakers having an interest in Rose, the Cleveland Cavaliers are also interested. While Rose will never regain his 2011 MVP form, Deron Williams is incredibly washed up and clearly not the answer judging by his performance in the playoffs.

The fact that he went AWOL before a game did not help him out either in the matter. The 28-year old has seen his career shift from a narrative of one of the NBA's best young players to a story of what could have been.
