An unidentified general manager recently said that the Lakers and Pistons could revisit a trade involving Derrick Rose this offseason according to Heavy.com's Sean Deveney.
Per the report the two teams had discussions regarding a possible deal ahead of the trade deadline, but to no avail. According to the general manager neither team was too eager to make a deal then, but the timing may be better to do so now. Not trading Rose at the deadline may wind up benefitting Detroit, as he played well and likely improved his value on the market. And while the Pistons are in need of a starting point guard, the team is embarking on a rebuild and that could open the door for a veteran such as Rose to move on for the right price.
