>>Bulls To Send Rose To Knicks

 

The New York Knicks have acquired former NBA MVP Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls.

 

The Knicks sent center Robin Lopez and guards Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant to Chicago in the deal that was completed Wednesday. New York also received guard Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick.

 

The Knicks have been seeking a point guard and Rose was one of the NBA's best before multiple knee injuries slowed the former No. 1 pick's career. He played in 66 games last season, his most in five years, and averaged 16.4 points.

 

>>Pacers Acquire PG Jeff Teague in 3-Team Deal

 

On Wednesday, Atlanta Hawks have traded Jeff Teague to the Indiana Pacers as part of a three-team deal, per The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski. In return, the Pacers will send George Hill to the Jazz and the Hawks will receive Utah's No. 12 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

 

Teague has been in trade rumors since the end of Atlanta's season but was more linked to deals involving the Philadelphia 76ers.

 

The second-round picks are likely stash options and the Hawks are left with two picks in the top 21 when they traditionally haven't valued the draft too much.
