Since entering the NBA back in 2008 with the Chicago Bulls, Derrick Rose has made $147,826,003 through his NBA contracts, per Spotrac.

After magically winning the draft lottery in 2008, the Bulls selected Rose with the first overall pick. Derrick, a Chicago native, averaged 16.8 points and 6.3 assists during his rookie season while making $4,822,800. He won the Rookie of the Year Award as well.

During his second season in the league, Derrick Rose became the first Bulls player to make the All-Star team since Michael Jordan. He averaged 20.8 points and 6.0 assists and earned $5,184,480. It appeared Rose was on his way to signing a lucrative rookie-scale extension down the line.

However, no one saw what happened during the 2010-11 season coming.

Rose won the MVP in the 2010-11 campaign, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to win the prestigious award. He put up 25.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 7.7 assists while making only $5,546,160. Rose had just made history both on the court and off it.

The “Derrick Rose Rule” was created after Rose won the MVP award in 2011. The rule allows young stars to qualify for a higher maximum salary – 30 percent of the cap instead of 25 percent – early in their careers.

A player becomes eligible for the “Rose Rule” when at least one of the following is true: The player is named to an All-NBA team in the most recent season or in two of the past three seasons; the player is named Defensive Player of the Year in the most recent season or in two of the past three seasons; the player is named Most Valuable Player in any of the past three seasons.

After winning the MVP award in 2011, Derrick Rose signed a five-year, $94.3 million extension with the Bulls in the summer of 2012. Derrick made $5,629,082 in 2011-12 but that dollar figure jumped up to $16,402,500 in 2012-13.

Unfortunately, Rose tore his ACL in Game 1 of the Bulls' first-round matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2012 postseason and missed the entire 2012-13 campaign.

Rose returned for the 2013-14 season but the injury bug wouldn't leave him alone. The three-time All-Star tore his meniscus in the 10th game of the campaign and required season-ending surgery. Derrick made $17,632,688 that year.

In 2014-15, Derrick Rose appeared in 51 games. He put up 17.7 points and 4.9 assists and helped the Bulls get to the second round of the playoffs while making $18,862,876. He hit a game-winning 3 at the buzzer against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

However, James answered with his own buzzer-beater in Game 4 and the Cavs wound up winning the next two games to end Rose's season.

The 2015-16 season ended up being Rose's last year with the Bulls. He averaged 16.4 points and 4.7 assists and earned $20,093,064. Chicago traded Derrick to the New York Knicks in the summer of 2016 for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant.

During his one season with the Knicks, Derrick Rose averaged 18.0 points and 4.4 assists. He made $21,323,252 and was set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason of 2017.

D-Rose underwent his fourth knee surgery before the 2016-17 season ended. That scared a lot of teams and the former MVP didn't receive a lot of interest in the open market.

In July of 2017, Rose shocked the world by signing a one-year, $2.1 million contract to play with LeBron and the Cavs. Derrick went from making $21,323,252 in 2016-17 to $2.1 million a year later. His tenure with Cleveland was a disaster, although much of that has to do with Greg Monroe taking Rose out of the air in the second game of the season.

Rose hurt his ankle badly and couldn't run for months. He even left the Cavs for a little bit before returning. Cleveland, though, eventually traded him to the Utah Jazz at the 2018 trade deadline.

However, Utah had no use for Derrick Rose and waived him. Suddenly, the youngest MVP in NBA history was out of the NBA. He was seen shooting at an empty gym while other teams were preparing for the playoffs. It was a sad sight.

However, Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau looked out for Rose and signed Derrick in March of 2018. Rose made $418,607 with Minnesota and was able to rejuvenate his career in the 2018 playoffs. He put up 14.2 points while shooting a ridiculous 70.0 percent from beyond the arc.

In the summer of 2018, Derrick Rose re-signed with the Timberwolves on a one-year, $2.4 million contract. He averaged 18.0 points during the 2018-19 season and scored a career-high 50 points on Halloween night against the Jazz, the team that waived him.

Following his successful 2018-19 season, Rose signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the Detroit Pistons in the summer of 2019. He was averaging 18.1 points per game for Detroit this season before games were suspended due to COVID-19.

Rose was set to make $7,317,073 this season and $7,682,927 in 2020-21.
