Hoops World's Alex Kennedy went so far as to provide contract details.
Brandon Roy's decision came down to two teams: MIN and GS. He will sign a two-year, $10 million deal with Timberwolves: tinyurl.com/7kq2h7f— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 6, 2012
We'll see if these are right in future posts.
He retired from the NBA after the 2010-2011 season now it seems 100% certain Brandon Roy has decided he'll give the NBA one more shot.
We all know about the degenerative issues affecting his knees and because of this he decided to take the 2011/12 season off.
We all thought he was done. We thought wrong.
He'll come back and try to crack the Minnesota roster. What a stud for them to get.
He comes in averaging 19PPG, 4.7 assists, and 4.3 RPG.
Being a huge UW hoops fan I can't tell you what a thrill this will be to see B-Roy back on the court.
We'd heard all the rumors from Jamal Crawford's twitter account this year that Brandon was practicing, but now it looks like the comeback is on.
I fell bad for Trailblazers fans today. I honestly do.
