LeBron, Rose to train together in Las Vegas

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James and his new teammate, Derrick Rose, will train together in Las Vegas this week, according to a report by ESPN.

Rose signed a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Cavs on Tuesday after spending last season with the New York Knicks.

ESPN is reporting that the new teammates' first workout session together could be as early as Wednesday evening.

Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe will be there as well -- which is not a surprise given his close relationship with James.

Kyrie Irving, who requested a trade from Cleveland, has been linked to going to the Suns and Bledsoe's name has been mentioned in a bevy of potential deals.

James communicated with Rose during the free agency process and sold the former MVP on a new beginning and a chance to compete for an NBA title.

The workout sessions should help accelerate the on-court chemistry the two stars need if they want to co-exist on the court.

One thing is likely certain: No team is going to want to see LeBron and Rose in transition together.

We all know James is a freight train in the open court, and even after all the knee injuries, Rose has demonstrated the ability to still be a one man fast break and finish in heavy traffic.
