“If we could find the right person to fit into our team and have some ability to play, get out there on the floor, we are certainly going to look at it,” Taylor told The Star Tribune’s Sid Hartman. “We kept one slot open all year long just in case that possibility occurred. But as of today we don’t have anybody in mind.”

Jeff Teague is currently Minnesota’s starting point guard after signing a three-year, $57-million contract over the summer, with Tyus Jones serving as the primary backup. Thibodeau doesn’t utilize a deep rotation in the first place, so there’s really no need for someone like Rose at this stage.

The 29-year-old averaged 9.8 points and 1.6 assists on 43.9 percent shooting during his 16-game stint with the Cavs organization. via-
