The Brandon Roy comeback tour will apparently stop in Minnesota after the guard agreed to a two-year deal with the Timberwolves, according to a report.
Brandon Roy has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to sources. Link coming.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 6, 2012
Roy sat out the 2011-12 season due to a degenerative knee condition but decided to make a comeback earlier this offseason. The Timberwolves visited Roy in Seattle last week. Roy also drew interest from several other teams including the Golden State Warriors, who he also visited.
The deal with Roy could throw a wrench into Minnesota's plans to sign Nicolas Batum to an offer sheet. The Timberwolves were reportedly set to offer Batum $45-50 million over four years, but now they may have to make an additional move first.
If this dollar figure is true, Minny either has to amnesty Darko and renounce Tolliver, or offer Batum much less $.— John Hollinger (@johnhollinger) July 6, 2012
