Accompanying the New York Knicks' acquisition of Derrick Rose on Wednesday are ongoing proceedings of Derrick Rose's sexual assault civil case.

A lawsuit was filed last August alleging that Rose was involved in a gang rape of a woman whose identity is being shielded in court documents.

Rose denied the allegations immediately.

Deadspin has more on the court documents here.

A former roommate of the plaintiff described the woman's case as a "sham" in a deposition given in pre-trial proceedings.

Basketball implications are inescapable given Rose's star status, compounded by the New York market. The Bulls traded Rose, Justin Holiday, and a draft pick to New York Wednesday in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon, and Jerian Grant.
