Jalen Rose -- Released from Jail after 16 Days

Former NBA star Jalen Rose was released from a Detroit jail this morning -- after spending 16 days behind bars stemming from a DUI arrest back in March.

Rose -- who currently works for ESPN as an NBA analyst -- was originally sentenced to 20 days in the slammer ... after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated during a March 11 crash.

TMZ broke the story ... the 38-year-old ex-Fab Fiver was driving along an icy roadway in Michigan with a female passenger when he lost control of his vehicle, flipping the car.

After the judge basically threw the book at Rose -- Jalen's lawyer called the sentence "outrageous" ... and an "abuse of discretion."
