NBA Free Agent Rumors News: Timberwolves Sign Roy

The fast and furious NBA free agency period continued today with several agreements and decisions. The Minnesota Timberwolves made the biggest move today by agreeing to terms with former all star Brandon Roy.

The Wolves, who drafted Roy but traded him to Portland, agreed to sign Roy to a modest 2 year, $10 million dollar deal. Roy was a perennial all star at Portland but retired because of knee problems. The T-Wolves are hoping Roy can stay healthy and return to his old form. When you are a franchise like the Wolves taking a shot in the dark like this is a good move. Roy is only costing $5 mil/year and could be an all star again. He is worth the small risk.

When Ricky Rubio returns, the Wolves could sport a backcourt consisting of Rubio and Roy, certainly an exciting thought for Minnesota fans.
