Derrick Rose would like to re-sign with the New York Knicks in free agency.

Rose made $21.3 million in the final season of his five-year, $94 million contract extension. 

"Derrick loves New York and wants to be there," Rose's agent, B.J. Armstrong, told Bleacher Report recently. "We've expressed that to them and been very consistent about it. Whether it happens is on them; all we can do is be clear."

Armstrong insinuated Rose would be willing to take a pay cut.

"In the end, we want to explore everything—if you're going to compete, you clearly need a number of [top] players, so let's figure that out," Armstrong said. "We want the best team possible. That's it. All the other stuff, if the team wins, everyone wins."
