Derrick Rose is reportedly considering retiring from the NBA, and according to Nick DePaula — his contract with Adidas will likely play a large part in that.
Rose would leave more than $70 million on the table over the next six years from Adidas if he were to walk away.
If DRose retired outright, he'd be leaving an adidas deal with 6 years and roughly $70+ Million remaining on the table. https://t.co/PgqqiqYqlJ

Much like former NFL RB Arian Foster, who retired because he got tired of rehabbing injuries — A report came out on Friday that the current Cleveland Cavs guard is reportedly considering retiring from the NBA and is currently on leave from the team to re-evaluate his future in the league.
If he does follow through with that decision, he stands to lose an insane amount of money in the process.
Rose signed a 13-year, $185 million deal with Adidas in 2012. Time will tell if Rose really is done wit the NBA , but with so much money left on the table, maybe he will reconsider his current situation.
