Timberwolves Free Agency 2012: Minnesota Target Brandon Roy Meets With Warriors, According To Report

Former Portland Trail Blazer Brandon Roy, who the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly interested in signing this offseason, met this week with the Golden State Warriors, according to an article from the Associated Press.

Roy, the sixth-overall pick in 2006, has played his entire career in Portland, but the three-time All-Star retired prior to last season because of lingering knee issues, which have crippled him the past few seasons.

From the AP article:

The Golden State Warriors and Roy met earlier this week about him joining the team in the free agent's attempted comeback, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were preliminary, said the Warriors met with Roy on Sunday and were hoping to meet with the former Portland guard again this week. Nothing was scheduled yet.

The article says that while it's unclear how much money Roy is seeking, it is unlikely that he would sign the veteran minimum of about $1 million per year.

Bob Myers, Roy's former agent, is now the general manager of the Warriors.
