08:03 PM ET 05.10 | The Minnesota Timberwolves will release Brandon Roy, clearing $5.3 million owed him in the 2013-14 season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Roy's second year of his two-year deal he signed last year is not guaranteed. It was previously reported that then-president of player operations David Kahn might may consider using Roy's non-guaranteed deal as trade bait, but with Flip Saunders now in charge, it appears that won't be happening. An official announcement is expected in the near future, per the report. Roy, 28, started the team's first five games of the 2012-13 season, but never recovered from a mid-November knee procedure. This seems to be the end of the road for Roy, which, at the age of 28, is truly tragic.

...as trade bait? Are you serious? Only Kahn would be that stupid.

Did someone forget to upload this article 2 years ago and find it today under a pile of junk mail?

Cant fix a knee like that. Bone on bone. Sad to see his career end, but earning that much money for 5 games this season sounds like a pretty great deal!! Wolves were stupid to sign him.

Good call. This guys career was over years ago. He was too self-absorbed and Kahn (clearly) didn't acknowledge it.

Well Past Done, Bro.

Hopefully Rush won't end up as those players who find themselves broke three years after retiring. Here's to wishing him the best.

And so many people are still pushing for Derrick Rose to come back even though he feels he isn't ready. I'm sure the Blazers' team doctor also gave him the "go ahead".
