New deal for Derrick Rose

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has agreed to a five-year contract extension, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard on Tuesday.The contract is worth $94.8 million, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.

The Bulls announced Tuesday night that they are set to make a "major announcement" at a press conference featuring Rose, vice president of basketball operations John Paxson, general manager Gar Forman, and coach Tom Thibodeau at 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

Rose wouldn't say anything specific after the Bulls' preseason game Tuesday night.

"It's something big, but I think I want to talk more about it (Wednesday) with my family and everybody being there," Rose said after the Bulls beat Indiana on Tuesday night. "But it's definitely something big."

And, teammates say, it was well-earned.

"We're all very excited for him," Carlos Boozer said. "He deserves it. He puts in a lot of effort. I wish the contract was for 10 years."

Boozer won't even be around for another ten years. I hope he's saying it for Rose in general. The Bulls will need helof if they want banner 7.

Quick note: Reggie Evans rumored with the Celtics,but he signs in LA with the Clippers.
