As expected, the Utah Jazz waived Derrick Rose on Saturday, paving the way for him to join another team in the near future.

Rose was traded to the Jazz from the Cleveland Cavaliers last week as part of the three-team deal that sent Rodney Hood and George Hill to Cleveland, but reports indicated that Utah never had any interest in keeping Rose.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have already reportedly shown interest in adding Rose, and now ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Washington Wizards have also emerged as possible suitors.

The Wizards will be without All-Star point guard John Wall for at least another month while he recovers from knee surgery, so Rose could conceivably join the point guard rotation currently featuring Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier.
