Was It A Mistake For The Wolves To Sign Roy?

Brandon Roy's comeback attempt is off to an inauspicious start. He's out for a month after undergoing right-knee surgery today, having already missed the last four games for the Wolves. In the five contests in which he has appeared, he didn't look like his old self, averaging just 5.8 points on 31.4% shooting in 24.4 minutes per game. 

He signed a two-year, $10.43MM contract this summer, but only the first year is guaranteed. The second year can become guaranteed if Roy hits at least one of two benchmarks this season: playing 1,400 or more minutes or appearing on the active list for 65 or more games this season. Both will be tall orders for him now. Roy could also have triggered a guarantee for 2013/14 if he were sidelined for any ailment other than his knees, but alas, that's already by the boards.

So, in light of Roy's latest surgery, what do you think of the decision of GM David Kahn and Wolves management to take a flier on Roy this season? Vote below, and if you have other ideas about Roy's deal, let us know in the comments.

I really didn’t mind signing Roy & rolling the dice to see if he could come back & be productive. The out on the 2nd year was a smart move since it isn’t looking good for Roy’s comeback & he probably won’t get the 2nd year. The problem I have with the Wolves is they gave him 5.4M much more than any player who has been amnestied has received. That is the most money per year given to a player who has been amnestied.

Here is a list of the players amnestied over the last two years:
