Brandon Roy is Coming Out of Retirement
Brandon Roy is likely going to be a Minnesota Timberwolf. He retired last season due to severe knee issues. Brandon Roy played for the Portland Trailblazers for five seasons before he called it quits. It was a smart decision by Roy. His early retirement at the age of 27, allowed him not to further increase the chance of his career ending for good. He should’ve pulled a Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade and went to Germany to get that superman knee surgery or getting it drained. But now, so many NBA fans have been dying for Brandon Roy to come back!
Unfortunately, Roy isn’t allowed to sign with the Timberwolves until July 11. He’s starting off small according to the Oregonian newspaper and HoopsWorld.com. In hopes of gradually reviving his career, Roy is going for a two-year contract worth $10 million. Trust, Brandon Roy is definitely worth $10 million and considering how well he’s healing might even been worth more!
Impact of Brandon Roy
The shooting guard is no stranger to the Western Conference. Within the past season, the competition has been heating up with the rise of Oklahoma City Thunder and the newly assembled Los Angeles Lakers squad. In the 2006 draft, Roy was selected sixth overall by the Timberwolves. As we are experiencing now, Roy’s transfer to Portland was the result of a trade for fellow guard Randy Foye.
I think despite high hopes for his career, Roy will have a rough start. The competition is rocky and this 2012-2013 NBA season is going to be “off the charts” competitive. He’s going to do well and the finally keep the Timberwolves on the map along with Kevin Love. Looking forward to the season!
