Steinmetz: Warriors GM Confirms Interest In Brandon Roy

21
Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com reports that Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers has publicly confirmed rumors that his team has interest in signing former Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who has discussed a possible NBA comeback in recent months. Prior to joining Golden State's front office, Myers was Roy's agent. ------------------------------------- "It’s a possibility," Myers answered, when asked if the Warriors would have interest in Roy. "He’s an easy phone call to make." "I told (Roy) when he was amnesty-ed … ‘I hope this isn’t it for you. Make sure this isn’t it. He’s said publicly he wants to come back, so I’ll start to talk to him. It depends how everything goes for us and what his expectations are and all of that. But absolutely I’ll talk to him." ------------------------------------- Roy was released by Portland using the Amnesty Clause in December 2011 and cannot re-join the Blazers until July 2015. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
