Rose would be a significant upgrade for the Cavs, who have felt pressure from LeBron James to improve their roster this summer.
According to EPSN, Rose’s contract would reportedly be for a League minimum, $2.1 million.
The former No. 1 draft pick has met with several teams over the past three weeks, including the Milwaukee Bucks and LA Clippers, but he has gained momentum on a deal with the Cavs in the past several days, sources said.
The Cavs are believed to be offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million for the upcoming seasons to play with Kyrie Irving in the team’s backcourt.
