DERRICK Rose is being linked to a move to Washington Wizards just days after being traded by the Cavaliers.

John Wall underwent knee surgery and is is likely out for another month, and reports says Washington could be out to acquire Rose.

The star guard was waived by Utah after the trade with the Cavaliers. The Cavs sent Rose and forward Jae Crowder to the Jazz for forward Rodney Hood.

"We made a trade to have that flexibility," Washington coach Scott Brooks said.

"If something presents itself that makes sense — for us and the player — we will obviously look into it."
