The Detroit Pistons have agreed to trade Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks for Dennis Smith Jr. and draft compensation.

Fantasy Impact

Rose, currently dealing with knee injury, is averaging 14 points off the bench this year for the Pistons and will likely remain a bench in New York. This does seem like it might stunt Immanuel Quickley’s minutes which is a bummer for the rookie. Smith meanwhile has become a complete afterthought in New York after 15 points in Dallas his rookie year.
