Brandon Roy’s name may have been accompanied by the word “retirement” not too long ago, but that discussion was clearly premature. As Roy recovers from knee problems and prepares for his return to the NBA, a number of teams who believe he has plenty of good basketball remaining in his legs are lining up and preparing to make an offer. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Bulls, Mavericks, Pacers, Timberwolves and Warriors are all legitimate suitors for the 27-year-old guard.
Roy has reportedly been undergoing the same platelet-rich plasma therapy treatment that Kobe Bryant underwent for his ailing knee. A number of teams will be willing to use the full mid-level exception for Roy assuming he can return to form and eventually get back to being one of the better guards in the league.
According to ESPN 1500 in Minneapolis, the Timberwolves have already prepared a two-year offer for Roy. However, many believe that he would rather play for a championship contender, so a team like Chicago coul...

AROUND THE WEB
Brandon Roy's recovery from chronic knee problems has been recently spurred by undergoing the platelet rich plasma therapy procedure.
Jamal Crawford is either vastly overpaid or criminally underpaid, relative to his colleagues, depending on whether one puts more stock in recent performance or track record. To virtually nobody's surprise (except apparently his own), Crawford received no deal better than the two-year contract the Portland Trail Blazers offered last offseason.

Jeremy Lamb has the ability to be a great scorer, but questions surrounding his motor make him a big-time question mark.
David Kahn says the Minnesota Timberwolves are interested in signing Brandon Roy, who is seeking a comeback after knee injuries caused him to miss all of last season.
The three-time All-Star announced his retirement and was amnestied by Portland before last season began because of knee problems. After sitting out the lockout-shortened season, Roy wants to give it another try.
With the fate of Rays return seemingly zilch, Boston has been looking at players to help out Pierce and replace Ray.
Two options that have been getting a lot of blog attention around C's nation are Jamal Crawford from Portland and Josh Smith from Atlanta. My opinion is I don't see how we get Josh Smith. It seems improbable that the Hawks would do a deal so close in...
Sleeper Pick: Brandon Roy: Before I count down the top 5 Free Agents I had to put Roy in the mix. Before his knees and just about every other injury he faced the past two years, this guy was largely considered to be the one of the best players in the NBA. Heck, even Ron Peace said he was the hardest player to guard in the NBA, over players like Lebron and Kobe. This guy use...
