The Minnesota Timberwolves' interest in Brandon Roy is no longer just a rumor.
On Thursday, president of basketball operations David Kahn acknowledged that his club wouldn't mind adding the three-time All-Star who is currently on his comeback trail. But he didn't say much more than that, via Judd Zulgad of 1500 ESPN.
"I don't want to talk about that other than to say we're interested in him," Kahn said when asked what the Wolves saw in Roy.
Kahn was asked about Roy at the introductory press conference for the newest Timberwolf, Chase Budinger. Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN's reported on Monday that the Wolves would make Roy a two-year offer.
Roy has been working out in his hometown of Seattle, preparing for his comeback. He announced his intentions through his friend Will Conroy's Twitter account on June 15.
