LeBron excited by Rose's expected Cavs move


Former NBA MVP Derrick Rose is reportedly joining the Cleveland Cavaliers, and superstar LeBron James is excited.

While Kyrie Irving's future is uncertain, Rose has decided to join the Cavs on a one-year deal, according to The Vertical.

That would see him link up with four-time NBA MVP James, who used Twitter to express his excitement.

Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Kyle Korver, Cedi Osman and now 2011 NBA MVP Rose have agreed to join the Eastern Conference champions this offseason after near-misses for Jimmy Butler and Paul George in the trade market.

Rose, 28, averaged 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 64 games with the New York Knicks last season before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in April.
