Another NBA trade rumor occurred as Knicks' Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose could be headed Minnesota Timberwolves to be reunited with their former Bulls' coach Tom Thibodeau.

These past two weeks, there were rumors that Minnesota head coach Tom Thibodeau is looking to trade some of his young players for a veteran who is reliable in scoring as the Timberwolves are struggling earlier this season. 

His former Chicago Bulls players Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng and Taj Gibson were mentioned to be traded to Minnesota. But in the latest NBA trade rumors, it was said that Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose could also be headed to Minnesota.

The Knicks acquired Joakim Noah in the free agency this offseason. He is only averaging career-low 4.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 15 games with the Knicks.

Headlines and Global News reported that rumors are now spreading that Noah might be traded to the Timberwolves as the Knicks look like disappointed in signing him because of the expectation that he will provide quality numbers on the team. In exchange for Noah, the Knicks may choose on Ricky Rubio, Shabazz Muhammad, Nemanja Bjelica, Andreian Payne and Gorgui Deng.

On the other hand, Derrick Rose could also land in Minnesota Timberwolves but it is only a chance and will only be possible after Rose ends his final year in his contract. It will put him in the free agency after the 2016-2017 season. 

If Noah and Rose will join the Timberwolves, Noah could be a backup for Karl-Anthony Towns after Nikola Pekovic reportedly miss the whole season after suffering a chronic ankle injury. Rose, on the other hand, will bring additional scoring to the T-wolves as well as mentoring young players like Kris Dunn and Zach LaVine.

Just imagine Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose play along with each other. If ever the Luol Deng trade rumors will become true, this team will be exciting and can be a potential contender for an NBA Title.
