Rumors are circulating that Derrick Rose may be traded to the World Champion Lakers.

Heavy.com’s Sean Deveney spoke to a general manager who explained the renewed connection between L.A. and Derrick Rose:

“I think both sides were reluctant when they went into in January, February. I don’t think the Lakers wanted to make a major move because they thought they could do something on the buyout market. And I don’t think the [Detroit] Pistons wanted to make a major move because Derrick was happy there. You know, the Lakers wanted to be involved in case the Clippers got involved or someone else, the Bucks or the Nuggets, whoever. So there was interest but not too serious. Now, everything has shifted a little. Now, they’re both in a position to where a deal is much more likely now.”

Now that the NBA season is over, people are talking about off season trades.  The Pistons are in a rebuilding mode.  After trading Andre Drummond, sources say they are trying to see what they can get for Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin!

Who would we get in return?? Anthony Davis?  We shall see!
