MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Tuesday they’ve signed free agent guard Brandon Roy. He was introduced to the media and select Timberwolves season ticket holders at a news conference.
Details of his contract were not released per team policy.
Roy, 28, played five seasons with the Portland Trailblazers until briefly retiring last season due to knee issues. He averaged 19 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists while with the team.
Roy will now play for the team that originally drafted him in the 2006 NBA Draft before he was dealt to Portland for Randy Foye. The Trailblazers made the playoffs in three of his five seasons with the team.
Roy’s exact role with the team isn’t clear at this point and will be determined once the Timberwolves know how healthy he is and how many minutes he can play.
