Brandon Roy To Consider Five Teams

June 30 2012 at 10:52pm CDT By Zach Links

10:52pm: Roy met with the Timberwolves on Friday, Wojnarowski reports. The meeting took place in Seattle and included Wolves owner Glen Taylor, GM David Kahn and coach Rick Adelman along with Roy and his agent, Greg Lawrence. Roy is expected to meet with the other teams on his list over the next several days, a source tells Wojnarowski.

9:43pm: Roy is meeting with the Mavs tonight, according to Jamal Crawford, who said the meeting kept Roy from competing in a charity game today, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. 

6:09pm: Brandon Roy has narrowed his free agent finalists to the Bulls, Mavericks, Pacers, Timberwolves, and Warriors, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.  Roy and his agent, Greg Lawrence of Wasserman Media Group, will hold meetings with those teams over the next several days.

The guard expects to meet with those clubs in his hometown of Seattle.  Some teams pursuing Roy privately say they’re willing to offer a contract for longer than one season, league sources said.

Reportedly, a number of clubs are willing to commit their full mid-level exception to the 27-year-old.  Because Roy is still receiving paychecks from Portland, including $16.46MM next year, he may not automatically gravitate to the most lucrative offer.
