MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — 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.
Kahn said on Wednesday that the Timberwolves were interested in signing him, but would not comment further. Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman has roots in Portland and assistant coach Bill Bayno knows Roy well after serving on the Blazers staff.
If healthy, Roy would give the Timberwolves the big shooting guard they sorely lack. Adelman played undersized Luke Ridnour at the position for much of last season.
