Brandon Roy's career with the Minnesota Timberwolves may have ended after five games. A week after Roy reportedly suffered a setback with his surgically repaired right knee, comes word that the Wolves are looking to buyout the guard's contract.
ESPN 1500 reported that Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn has talked with Roy's agent, Greg Lawrence, about a buyout.
A source said Roy was asked if he was ready to retire again because
of continuing issues he has had with his knees. Roy wasn't willing to
call it quits, especially since he would have had to sacrifice the
balance of his contract. A buyout was then proposed, which so far has
Roy signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves in the off-season. He played
five games before suffering his latest knee injury and underwent
arthroscopic surgery in December. His career is definitely in doubt.
