Minnesota technically becomes the 2011 NBA MVP's fourth team in the last 11 months.

The Cavaliers sent Rose to the Jazz in their blockbuster trade February 8, but he was waived just two days later.

"We just thought he could help the team".

Rose may debut as early as Thursday night (Friday, Manila time), when Minnesota plays host to Boston. "Come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win", also according to ESPN. He's been around, he's been in a lot of games. How does the point guard fit into a team that seemingly has greater needs and is embarking on a tough stretch of games? Over the last two years when healthy the 9-year-veteran has played well. Rose would most likely be playing backup #Point Guard to Jeff Teague, with the opportunity to work with Crawford on the second unit and increase the efficiency of the Timberwolves' bench play.

BTW - the Wolves are now 6th in the super-stacked Western Conference, so it's unlikely. but crazier things have happened.

"I think I can play with anybody, to tell you the truth", Rose said. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. Rose, who started the year in Cleveland, appeared in 16 games and averaged 10 points before he was traded to Utah. I'm not here for stats or anything like that. In three All-Star seasons from 2010-12, the Memphis product never averaged fewer than 20 points or 6 assists per game, before injuries ultimately derailed the career of what was one of basketball's brightest young stars.
