Point guard Derrick Rose has re-signed with the Knicks on a three-year $43 million deal. French forward Evan Fournier is also on his way to New York, by way of the Boston Celtics.

Rose is a former MVP, who has enjoyed a resurgence in New York. His veteran play and leadership helped propel the Knicks to a playoff berth in 2021, their first since the 2012-2013 season, in which they were ousted in the Semifinals. He scored 14.9 points in 2021 and enjoyed his best three-point shooting percentage ever, at 41.1 percent.
Fournier is a three-and-D wing who helped France shock the U.S. Men’s National Basketball Team in the first official game of 2020 Olympics play. In 2021, his only season as a Celtic, he scored 13 points per game and added over 1.5 steals, the best of his career.
