08:06 AM ET 06.26 | The Timberwolves are getting another shot at Brandon Roy, even if he's now at a very different stage of his career. [Roy] was nearly a Timberwolf in 2006, but general manager Kevin McHale traded his rights on draft night for Randy Foye and cash. Six years later, a new regime has genuine interest in making Roy a permanent fixture in Minnesota. According to two league sources, the Wolves plan on making the three-time All-Star a two-year contract offer. The money is unknown. Roy, 27, sat out the 2011-2012 season because he lacks cartilage between the bones of both of his knees. He would likely have to pass an extensive physical before signing anywhere.

Couldn't hurt, their sg/sf situation is pretty terrible. If I were them I'd look into moving D.Williams while he still has value for an upgrade at one of those spots

That's not a pic of Roy. That's Shawne Williams.

Forget Brandon Roy. I like the guy a lot but he is not a good fit on a young team trying to come up. The T Wolves need to trade Derrick Williams and their first round pick to Charlotte for the number 2 pick. They need Bradley Beal!

Roy told reporters he is only interested in contenders...Guess the wolves didn't make the cut....

What he meant to say is "I'm interested in any team who will take me"
