NBA 2011 MVP could have spend the lockout abroad. The KK Zagreb made an offer to Derrick Rose for 22 games.
K.C. Johnson reports for the Chicago Tribune:
“We reached an economic agreement, but we could not find an agreement about the games,” KK Zagreb’s Hrvoje Ciketiae said in the interview. “Rose for sponsor obligations would have missed three Euroleague games. And we could not allow that.”
The team said it wanted to sign Rose for 22 games.
