Free-agent guard Derrick Rose has signed a one-year contract after meeting with the Cavaliers Monday, according to multiple reports.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports that the deal is worth about $2.1 million for the 2017-2018 season.

Rose is the 2011 NBA MVP.

Rose, 28, averaged 18 points for the Knicks last season and ended the season with knee surgery in April. 

He has since recovered and is ready to play in the upcoming season.

Rose's meeting and reported signing comes days after Kyrie Irving's trade request.
