    I'd look more at total minutes with Roy. He might be able to play 25-30 minutes per game.. for 5 games before re-injuring himself. Then what? Now you're paying $5M for a guy to sit on the bench.

    What's more realistic is 10-15 minutes every other game.

    Brandon Roy has reached a verbal agreement with the Wolves, according to a member of his family.

    Roy confirmed the news to Dave 'Softy' Mahler of KJR in Seattle.

    Roy's agent, Greg Lawrence, confirms that the deal is worth approximately $10.4 million over two years.

    "I'm excited to be back," said Roy. "I'm a T-Wolf!"

    Roy came out of retirement this summer.

    risky offer but not paying too much if he can still play 25-30 minutes a game

    That's all fair but Roy on that team.......I give him 3 weeks before he's injured again and done for good. Put him on the Spurs, Rockets, Suns, OKC, teams that actually know what they're doing with players and it wouldn't surprise me if he played 7 more years.

    Haha I like how the Wolves throw themselves in there like they're a respectable organization that could make Roy work for them.
    Well, the Wolves are improving as a team. They have a pretty bright future ahead of them. They have an All-star in Love, Rubio will only improve as the years go on as an amazing point guard, and Derrick Williams will improve in the next few years to be a capable starting forward. Chase Budinger would be a solid addition to a growing Wolves' team since there really isn't anyone they would want at the 18th spot. JJ Barea is a solid back-up point guard behind Rubio. I don't see what's wrong with them trying to add Roy to their team. It would be a solid investment for them with possible good upside.

    Looks like Roy has some left in the tank after all...

    Roy and Oden both ooze talent, but have had their careers devestated by injuries. However, I assume they will both attract quite a bit of attention in the offseason... some teams will drool over their potential and the 'what if' scenarios that would see their injury troubles suddenly disappear, while other teams will limit their playing time to coax as much mileage out of them as possible. I hope and expect BC to stay well clear of both players (and probably Green, for that matter), as he tends to shy away from anybody with an injury concern (ie: Pietrus last offseason). I could see both Roy & Oden becoming small minute backups for contenders, such as Miami, Chicago or the Lakers.

    If it's basically guaranteed that he's healthy again, I'm sure some idiot GM will overpay for Roy's services. I'm not sure I'm interested in a bidding war...
    when Kobe says you are toughest person in the league to guard, you know he is gonna draw some interest. Although I am not a doctor, if he could embrace a sixth man role he may yet have an okay career.

    But yeah I don't want Toronto to take a chance on him.

    look...if like three doctors will sign off saying his knees have improved, he proves it in an intense workout at the ACC with McKechnie signing off on the decision and he is willing to play restricted minutes I would gladly underpay to have him come off the bench.

    Since we haven't struck gold in the draft (fingers crossed JV is the real deal) and are about to play our way out of the lottery I don't see why not. Realistically if BC only drafts a rookie @ 8, brings back Bayless and fills up the remaining roster spots their gonna be better then last year. That means outside of the top 10 in the draft for the next few years lowering our chances of a star player being drafted. Multiple young players improving dramatically (JV, 8th pick, Demar, Ed, JJ, Bayless) or packaging some of them for a star player are the only real option as free agency isn't going to be kind to TO until they start winning consistently. Taking a chance on a player like Brandon Roy (@ a reasonable price and contract length) has to be looked at IMO. Even if he can't play 30+ minutes or back to backs he could be a great piece. Worst case some of his craftiness and leadership rubs off on Demar and takes him to the next level.

    he could help demar develop his game and take his place behind kobe(or hopefully take his place after he retires lol)

    I would like to take a risk. He will know that the contract will be less than what he did earn because of his medical risk.

    I like what someone said, a contract less than Kleiza's, playing 20-25 minutes a night starting or off the bench I don't mind. He was probably the best shooting guard in the league behind Kobe at one point. Incredible player. High risk, high reward signing. Sounds like the draft...

    That's about the minutes that Barbosa logged last year coming off the bench at 7.6 million in salary.
    And Barbosa could play in back to back games, in daily practices and over the rigours of an 82 game schedule

    If I remember Roy's problems are due to lack of cartilage in his knees. I understand that there has been a lot of advancement in cart. replacement theraphy using stem cells. Kobe does not explicitly confirm this treatment other than he goes/went to Germany I believe for a procedure on his knee last year. China is another location where this can be done. As we know certain types of stem cells cannot be used in the US. It is a possibility that Roy may have been treated for his ailment. I hope so. He was a talent and I enjoyed his game.
