It appears Derrick Rose has had another lapse in judgment. 

Despite a strange absence from the Knicks on Monday night in which he reportedly talked about walking away from basketball for an extended period of time to clear his mind, Rose has his heart set on a max contract this summer.

According to ESPN, some close to Rose say he has told friends he will seek a max contract this summer. For the 28-year-old Rose, that contract would be for five years and nearly $150 million.

Sorry, Rose that's not going to happen. As the report points out, the below-.500 Knicks would need to use nearly all of their cap space to sign Rose to the deal.


While he's bringing in over $21 million on a one-year deal with the Knicks this season, he's not playing to his worth. With the latest report saying Rose is growing tired of being away from his son, we doubt there's any NBA team that is willing to spend up for Rose, who is averaging 17.3 points, 4.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game this season. 

In fact, there are a number of impending free agent point guards that have a better shot than Rose for better contract. Chris Paul and Kyle Lowry could opt out of their player options for next season, while unrestricted free agents Jrue Holiday, Jeff Teague and George Hill all have a higher player efficiency rating than Rose this season.
