Timberwolves Set To Offer Roy Two-Year Deal

The Timberwolves are set to offer Brandon Roy a two-year contract, reports Darren Wolfson of The former Portland star sat out the 2011/12 season due to health concerns stemming from a lack of cartilage in his knees. After being amnestied by the Trail Blazers, Roy is free to sign with any team in the league. While many thought the former All-Star had permanently retired from the NBA, Roy has been training in Seattle in hopes of making a return for the 2012/13 season. The 27-year-old remains a health concern but has received an endorsement from Wolves assistant coach Bill Bayno, who has previously worked with Roy in Portland.

Wolves head coach Rick Adelman and David Kahn, the team's president of basketball operations, are both on board with the move as they have been convinced the potential reward of signing Roy is worth the risk. If Roy is as healthy as reports have suggested, he may have additional suitors beyond Minnesota and would seemingly elect to play with championship contender rather than a fringe playoff team. While the Trail Blazers could potentially use Roy back on their roster, the guard cannot re-sign with Portland until July 2015. Regardless of where Roy ends up, the former Huskies star will be required to undergo an extensive physical prior to signing a contract given his health history. —–

    The Wolves should never have traded him in the first place. Hope he signs with them. They are an up-and-coming team and desparately need a sg.
