Report: B-Roy, Blazers Close to a Deal

by August 05, 2009

Portland is reportedly inching closer and closer to locking up its star for the long term: “A source close to the Roy negotiations told me on Tuesday that the two-time All-Star was eager to get the deal done. And that the Blazers were also on board, and wanting to make the deal official. By 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday the sides had a verbal agreement. And the fingers of Blazers fans that were running down the schedule earlier in the day, suddenly started skipping.”
