Deal is 2 yrs, $10.4M. ---------------------------- Alex Kennedy of reports on Twitter... ---------------------------- Brandon Roy has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to sources. ---------------------------- Dave Mahler of Seattle radio station KJR reports... ---------------------------- Just spoke to Brandon Roy. He's back. Two year deal with Minnesota. "I'm excited to be back. I'm a T-Wolf!" ---------------------------- According to multiple reports (here and here), Roy had six suitors: Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers and Minnesota Timberwolves. Roy has reportedly met with both the Timberwolves (according to Darren Wolfson of here) and the Warriors (according to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group here) so far during the July Free Agency moratorium. The Timberwolves were reportedly willing to offer Roy a multi-year contract and Timberwolves GM David Kahn publicly confirmed interest in Roy last week. Roy, 27, is a 3-time All-Star who holds career averages of 19.0 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. The Blazers released Roy using the Amnesty Clause back in December 2011 because of ongoing problems with both of his knees. Roy cannot re-join the Blazers until July 2015. Roy is an unrestricted free agent after clearing the amnesty bidding process. No deals can be made official until July 11, when the NBA's current 10-day moratorium is complete. Committing $5 million per year to Roy would complicate Minnesota's pursuit of Blazers restricted free agent forward Nicolas Batum. -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
