Derrick Rose signs with the Timberwolves for the rest of the season

Why did the Timberwolves sign Derrick Rose?

The Timberwolves were previously one of the only teams rumored to be interested in the former NBA Rookie of the Year and league MVP after the Jazz waived Rose two days after acquiring him from the Cavaliers at the deadline last month.

Tom Thibodeau is now the Timberwolves' coach, and he led the Bulls and both players for five seasons in Chicago.

ED Opioid Overdose Visits Jump 30% in One Year
Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Delaware and IL reported an uptick of 50 percent or more, the report said. Overall as a nation, we are still failing to adequately respond to the opiate addiction epidemic.

Almost a month to the day after playing his final game with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Derrick Rose is making his return to basketball. Rose, who started the year in Cleveland, appeared in 16 games and averaged 10 points before he was traded to Utah.

Minnesota will be the fourth team Rose plays for, and technically his fourth franchise in the last 11 months.

The first three years of Rose's National Basketball Association career went swimmingly but injuries have derailed a career that began with so much promise.

Ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas continues in Myanmar, says top United Nations official
The northern Rakhine state has been largely closed off to journalists, diplomats and most aid organisations by Myanmar's military. A recent report in The Irrawaddy claimed that at least 90 percent of the state's Rohingya population have fled.

Former Chicago Bulls star and MVP Derrick Rose is headed to Minneapolis. While history says Rose will not be able to do much with this team, some think that reuniting him with old friends may re-kindle a fire within.

"We just thought he could help the team", Thibodeau said. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. "Come in, be a good teammate, try to help us win", also according to ESPN.

The Wolves are locked in a wild playoff race in the Western Conference.

Technical issue leaves passengers stranded for hours at Sydney airport
The airport is now experiencing technical issues at security and check-in desks, causing major interruptions to outbound flights. We're experiencing technical issues at T1 and T2 causing interruptions to passenger processing and delays.

By comparison, the Cavaliers were outscored by 5.3 points per 100 possessions with Rose on the floor, largely because he failed to pull his weight on defense.
