Derrick Rose and the New York Knicks have yet to chat about a possible contract extension.
The 28-year-old former MVP says he’s solely focused on winning ballgames.

Rose scored a season-high 30 points in Monday night’s loss to the visiting OKC Thunder—he’s earning $21.3 million in the final year of his current deal.
Per the NY Post:
By CBA rules, Rose’s veteran extension can only be three years long and start at 7.5 percent higher than his current wage. The extension package would be for approximately three years, $75 million.
“I haven’t talked to them about it,’’ Rose told The Post. “It’s been more about winning games. We’ll see. I’m more concerned with trying to win games, but it’s something I’d have to talk about with my family and team.’’
According to an NBA source, the Knicks have not approached Rose about an extension, but have not ruled it out for late in the season. The Knicks apparently want to make sure his body holds up across a full season and would be willing to pay more this summer if they had to.
