Brandon Roy Met With T-Wolves, Will Speak With Bulls, Pacers, Mavericks and Warriors

With a comeback to the NBA looking increasingly probable, formerly retired guard Brandon Roy has already met with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and will speak with a short list of teams in the coming hours/days, including Chicago, Indiana, Dallas and Golden State. Roy will potentially sign with one of these squads, Yahoo! reports: “Former Portland Trail Blazers star Brandon Roy met with Minnesota Timberwolves officials Friday in Seattle, NBA sources told Yahoo! Sports. T’wolves owner Glen Taylor, general manager David Kahn and coach Rick Adelman met with Roy and his agent, Greg Lawrence, to discuss Roy possibly signing with them, sources said. The Wolves are one of five finalists for Roy, including the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors. Roy is likely to meet with the other four teams over the next several days, sources said. Each of the finalists have connections that intrigue Roy, sources said. After leaving the NBA at the start of last season because of chronic knee problems, Roy has recovered after undergoing the platelet-rich plasma therapy procedure that Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant had in Germany last year. Some teams pursuing Roy privately say they’re willing to offer a contract for longer than one season, despite his knee issues, league sources said.”

    Looks like the ROY/WOLVES connection is via the PORTLAND folks and Bill Bayno. Though he’d fit a need on the wing for the Wolves, Roy more than likely wants to go to a contender and win a ring.

    The Bulls are the best spot. But, I remember his last year; it was painful to watch. Doctors said it was bone on bone and the Platlette therapy wouldn’t help him. I looked to watch him play. He is smart and could break you down, shoot with unlimited range, pass well, and make big plays at big times. It would be very sweet for him to come back and have a run at glory. The Bulls are a no brainer for Roy
