NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Knicks have acquired former NBA MVP Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls.

The Knicks sent center Robin Lopez and guards Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant to Chicago in the deal that was completed Wednesday. New York also received guard Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick.

The Knicks have been seeking a point guard and Rose was one of the NBA’s best before multiple knee injuries slowed the former No. 1 pick’s career. He played in 66 games last season, his most in five years, and averaged 16.4 points.
