Rose became the younest ever winner of the NBA MVP at just 22 years old, but his career has been ravaged by recurring injuries since. The Chicago native's most serious injuries include, in chronological order, a torn ACL requiring surgery, a torn meniscus that required two surgeries and a fracutured orbital bone requiring a face mask.
Of 410 regular season games in the past five years, Rose has appeared in just 166. He enjoyed his healthiest campaign since 2011 last season, where he played in 66 games and averaged 16.4 points, 4.7 assists and 3.4 rebounds.
When healthy, Rose was known for explosive speed and ability to drive to the basket. He'll be joining a Knicks roster anchored by Latvian phenom Kristaps Porzingis and veteran All-Star Carmelo Anthony.
The Bulls and Knicks have officially announced the deal.
