NBA Free Agency: Brandon Roy Agrees To Join Minnesota Timberwolves, According To Report

One of the more intriguing free agents in the NBA the summer is Brandon Roy, a shooting guard with all-star talent and a history of knee injuries. But talent is hard to pass up and several teams have expressed an interest in signing Roy this summer after his latest knee injury forced him to leave the Portland Trail Blazers due to retirement.

According to Jason Quick of The Oregonian, Roy has decided to join Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love and the Timberwolves in the upcoming season.

Roy will fill a big need for the Wolves if he can provide stead production from the shooting guard spot. Roy last played in the 2010-11 season when he played 47 games and averaged 12 points, 2.7 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game. For his career, Roy has averaged 19 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Quick went on to say he did not know any details of the deal.

UPDATE: Quick's report was confirmed by NBA.com's David Aldridge who also had the terms of the deal.
