Derrick Rose, the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player, cleared league waivers Monday and became a free agent, league sources told ESPN. There's some interest in Rose, but no team has yet to make him a firm offer to sign him for the rest of the season, league sources told ESPN. Washington has considered the possibility of Rose in the wake of John Wall's extended absence after knee surgery, but is looking at other candidates too, league sources said. One of those could be former NBA guard Ty Lawson, who has been playing in China, sources told ESPN.
