Brandon Roy is going to be the feel good story of next season and he is going to be on a team that could surprise a lot of people. Roy has reached an agreement with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but that could change before free agency officially ends.
I love this move for the team. Roy gives them a guy who can actually score and they have enough people around him that he does not have to play a lot. Brandon Roy is still one of my favorite players and he was retired last season. His offense is part of a dying breed of basketball. That is why he is so fun to watch.
I love this move for Roy as well. He doesn’t have to play overwhelming minutes. Ricky Rubio is going to be on the ball most of the time, which should help Roy and his knees. He provides playoff experience to a team that most certainly needs it. This should make the TWolves a sleeper in the Western Conference.
This move could break down but this makes a lot of sense to me. If the Wolves are not going to get their main target in Nic Batum, getting a guy like Roy helps a lot. They have the money to offer him and as long as the deal is reasonable, this will work.
I expect Brandon Roy to be loved by fans almost everywhere next season. I know that I am wishing him the best on his comeback.
