It’s officially a comeback for Brandon Roy. Coming out of retirement, the young NBA guard and 3-time NBA All-Star Brandon Roy is going to take his talents to the Twin Cities this fall.
The former Blazers guard, has reached a verbal agreement with the Minnesota Timberwolves on a 2-year contract which would pay him a total of $10.4 million.
According to a Seattle radio show Brandon Roy stated, “I’m excited to be back, I’m a T-Wolf” Should have added a snarl there you think? Well, he’s officially a member of the young and up and coming Minnesota Timberwolves and I’m personally glad this deal went through.
Fun fact: Roy was originally drafted by Minnesota in the 2006 NBA Draft but was quickly traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for the draft rights of Randy Foye. Gee, I wonder who got the better side of that deal …
Roy’s decision on where he would land this off-season was a tough one with multiple NBA teams such as the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors (who was the 2nd choice for Roy), Dallas Mavericks, and the Indiana Pacers. However, despite that tough decision the Minnesota Timberwolves stood out from the rest of the pack and grabbed the player they brought into the NBA.
