A person familiar with the situation tells the Associated Press that the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in free agent guard Brandon Roy, who is attempting a comeback. The Cavs have not yet set up a visit with Roy, said the person who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sides are only in preliminary discussions. Roy, a three-time All-Star, announced his retirement last season after five seasons with Portland because of chronic knee problems. After sitting out the lockout-condensed season, Roy wants to try and resume his once promising NBA career. The Minnesota Timberwolves and other teams have also expressed an interest in Roy. The 27-year-old Roy averaged 19 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 321 games. He was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2006 draft.
