He averaged 18.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists while shooting 48.2% from the field, 37% from beyond the arc and 85.6% from the free-throw line with the Timberwolves last season.

Free agent Derrick Rose is headed back East, as he will be's set to sign a two-year deal with the Detroit Pistons, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

After last season, he looks like a solid backup point guard.

The Pistons are emerging as favorites to sign Derrick Rose, according to Frank Isola of The Athletic.

Huawei's US sales of network gear evaporated after a USA congressional panel labelled the company a security threat in 2012 and told phone carriers to avoid it.

The Pistons have little cap space but can use their $9.2 million mid-level exception and $3.6 million bi-manual exception.

This past year with the Wolves, Rose averaged 18 points per game in 51 contests while battling various injuries throughout the course of the season.

Rose, who turns 31 in October, is entering his 11th National Basketball Association season (he sat out 2012-13 with a torn ACL).

With Rose on board, the Pistons will have another offensive threat behind All-Star forward Blake Griffin.

Detroit does return Reggie Jackson to the team next season and a few other guards as well, but if Rose is healthy again he can be productive.
