With Kyrie Irving seeking a trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers bolstered their backcourt on Tuesday when the team officially announced the signing of free agent point guard Derrick Rose.

“We are very excited to be able to add a player of Derrick’s caliber and experience to the team,” Cavs general manager Koby Altman said in a statement. “Derrick could have gone to a number of other teams, but his specific mindset, goals and total focus and commitment to winning are what resulted in him signing with the Cavaliers. We are confident he will be a very good fit with our organization and we look forward to the many ways he will contribute to the team.”
