Derrick Rose, has more than proven he is still a great player on the Pistons. He would be an interesting addition to the Lakers, adding a much-needed scoring guard.

Derrick Rose has been in and out of the league we know this. But, as of recent Rose has proven that he is still the player who made an impact coming into the league.

Rose would add so much more depth and scoring capabilities for the team. He has had a good year averaging 17.8 points per game. Compared to the guards of Rondo, Green, Bradley, and Caruso. Rose would be by far the best on the team.

He defense is average, which can make him being a good fit for the great defensive team of the Lakers this year.  Still if Rose ends up on the market the Lakers should look into a trade to land him in LA.

The only downside to trade for a player like Rose would be the high price. He is a better starting guard in the league than most. Which of course, to land a bigger fish like him the price tag would be a little high.
