Knicks Haven’t Ruled Out Extension for Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose seems happy to be playing in the Big Apple and to have a fresh start after a frustrating and disappointing last four seasons as a Bull. He had his best game as a Knick and maybe his best game in year’s on Monday when the Knicks loss to the Oklahoma City Russells, excuse [...]
