The Minnesota Timberwolves continue their pursuit of free agent guard Brandon Roy in advance of the July 1st date when teams can sign free agents. 1500 ESPN reported earlier in the week that the Timberwolves were ready to offer Roy a two-year contract to entice him out of his injury-forced "retirement" from the Portland Trail Blazers.
The latest news according to this tweet from Darren Wolfson reveals that Minnesota has expressed its interest to Roy in person.
Just heard the #Twolves met with FA Brandon Roy earlier today. Another sign that they want him badly. They like their chances to get him.— Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) June 30, 2012
If Roy signs elsewhere it won't be for lack of effort by the Timberwolves and David Kahn in particular as they have put the full-court press on Roy to resume his career in the Minnesota back court.
