View Full Version : Where will Roy play next year?

I think it's obvious at this point that Brandon Roy and the Trail Blazers will divorce. Roy told reporters last night that he had to keep himself from crying on the bench. Mcmillian has lost all faith in what used to be their franchises best player. And with the addition of Wallace, Roy really isn't needed.

What I'm not sure of, is where will Roy end up? Who's willing to take on his salary given his injury history?

The Bulls come to mind. They have a little cap room, and are in desperate need of a SG. The Cavs, Wolves and Nets may be desperate enough. But I'm not sure in any direction. Let me know where you think he will end up, and why? Or maybe the Blazers just wont be able to move him.

i don't think the bulls can afford him. i'm not sure I haven't looked it up yet but, the bulls only have 2-3 million available (i think) i'm pretty sure Roy is going to get paid morre than that. He'd be a nice addition to the bulls I just hope that where ever he goes that he can play close to what he was before his injuries started it's a shame.

They do only have $3 mil available... but I'm assuming guys like Korver and Brewer at 5 a piece could be moved to make room. He'd be taking their minutes anyway.

Noah's deal is the real problem. It jumps from $3 to $10.

Then again, Utah is in need of a SG, and they haev $17 coming off in the form of AK-47.

He's a Blazer... but he's only played a total of maybe 30 minutes in the first two games of their series despite being healthy. They even put Pat Mills in ahead of him at one point! lol.

Bulls seem like the best fit for him. If Bulls could work out a trade for himI think they will be the favorites for the 2012 championship. Other teams to consider: Cavs, Mavericks, Spurs, Hornets, Nets, Knicks, and Magic

He won't be with the Bulls, that's for sure. We have no cap space, and we have no pieces that the Blazers would want in a trade. I also highly doubt the Bulls would want to trade for him & his contract.

So, he's definitely not coming to Chicago.

The Mavs actually did come to mind, because Cuban has an almost ******** willingness to spend. But how exactly would that work given re-signing Chandler is a MUST. Marion, Haywood, and Brewer maybe? I know they were one of the teams interested in Brewer when the Knicks let him go.

Actually that couldn't be further from the truth. He has worn AWAY the cartilage in BOTH knees. It's widely assumed that he will NEVER be as explosive as he once was. Which makes it hard to justify paying him about $53 mil over the next 4 years. He's not even the starter anymore. If he doesn't get moved, he will become a HUGE distraction. And they still have to figure out what they want to do about Odem, and Miller.

I think this is as cheap as you could get a "potential" star in a long time.

Phoenix never crossed my mind, but it makes sense. They could afford him outright if they let Carter and Pietrus go as expected. They are desperate enough to keep Nash to gamble. And they have some young players and a lottery pick to offer in return. It actually makes the most sense out of any team.

Bulls will be signing drose to an extention sometime next year. there sg position will be filled by the MLE if that even exist after the new CBA. no way they would be able to take on roys contract or anyone else over 6 mil.

have you seen his stat line for the last two games ? the blazers are stuck with him untill his contract is up. he is now what you call untradable and over paid. he just isnt what he was prior to his injuries.

I predicted the Magic-Wizards deal and someone said almost that exact same thing about Arenas.

A GM on the hot-seat (or even a warm-seat) will take chances, because if they don't pan out, well he was gone anyway.

As a Raptors fan it is sooooo tempting to want to bring him in to play SF since we now have Sonny Weems and Linas Klieza stinking it up currently at the position but he makes way to much cash...and with the new CBA 15-19 mil a year could seem like 20-23 next year if salaries are lowered...and yes the Suns are the obvious choice...two words Grant Hill

Arenas was still playing well before he was traded, the same can't be said for Roy. It's sad, but he is done. The Arenas trade was a trade of equally bad contracts, if Roy does get dealt, it will be for someone with a equally bad contract as his.

If roy was the old roy he would be starting for the blazers and this topic would have never came up. Don't expect him to ever be the roy of old he never will be that way again.

No team in the NBA is going to take on his contract at this time. He has too many years left on that deal and has had too many injuries hit him over the past two years for any team to justify the risk it would be taking. He will be in Portland next year....So hopefully some rest this summer gets him closer to his peak form.

Its funny how people really believe this guy has something left in the tank. Roys career is over. He has no lift, no explosiveness, his shot is gone, defensively even the slowest of NBA player blow by him with ease. I would go crazy if Cuban traded for this bum. His career is over

Lucky Junior
04-20-2011, 06:48 PM

Not over Batum or Wallace. They could try to play him at the point, but he doesn't have the quickness/agility for it. And if you listen to his interview from last night it's clear that in his current mind state, being the 6th is out of the question. If they can't move him, I think he'll demand a trade, which would further reduce his value. It's a no-win situation.

jiggin
04-20-2011, 07:34 PM
Blazers aren't going to give him away...so...prepare to give up something of value if they move him.

Otherwise, he will continue to be a bench player that is paid alot...and they will handle his attitude and media comments behind closed doors in the GM's office.

He is a nice kid. Seems to be respectful most of the time.

If he is told to shut the **** up, he most likely will. His agent recently took the assistant GM job with the Warriors so it will be fun to watch his new representation and how they will handle this snafu. Not a lot of ground to grovel on, he has been hurt with significant surgeries the blazers paid for and he is a max guy.

Shut up and play when we tell you too may be all he hears from the Blazers and his agent...at least till he can prove in the off-season he is the Roy of old. LOL

They could try to play him at the point, but he doesn't have the quickness/agility for it.

If he could get his spring back in that step it may be worth it for them to give him a look, with Patty Mills and Andre Johnson waiting in the wings (andre being gone at season end). Johnson isn't going anyway, he was named D League POY i think...and right now Paul Allen has a hard on for Patty Mills.

I just don't think the blazers can EVER go back to the isolation Roy that he liked and wants back, not with LA emerging as he has. I mean, lets not forget that LA was actually drafted before Roy and expected to be amazing when drafted 2nd overall in the 2006 draft. I mean, Aldridge WAS suppose to be the man...and now that he has the chance he is running with it, can't take that away all the sudden.

Blazers could certainly use some top shelf support role players, if nothing else to solidify that bench for next year...lord knows they will have injuries; its the Blazers.

04-20-2011, 08:10 PM
why do people keep saying go to pheonix? like a training staff is going to save him. him and grant hill are 2 completely different situations. hill injured his foot over and over, roy injured his knees over and over, roy is bone on bone right now. doctors have even said he has at best 2 years left. he aint going no where, he will sit on portlands bench, earn his money and then retire. someone might take a chance on him for the minimum when his contract is up, but other than that he is done.

Roy's future is incredibly up in the air, so I don't know how many teams will be eager to pick him up.

Incredibly sad for a guy who I thought was the 3rd best SG in the league behind Kobe and Wade and certainly top 10.

Iggy and Speights for Oden and Roy :)? Would be a huge risk but I'd be down. You'd get a sure thing in Iggy and "potential" in Speights haha.

PG: Jrue Holiday
SG: Brandon Roy
SF: Evan Turner
PF: Thad Young
C: Greg Oden

I love that on paper (when healthy) even though Thad's better suited off the bench.

Poor man's Brandon Roy (Evan Turner) and Brandon Roy together on the Sixers.

Could be interesting.... but this will never happen.... and Oden and Roy are serious gambles at this point.

stlbest5in2013

JasonJohnHorn
04-21-2011, 06:15 AM
Well, the Heat won a title with Eddie Jones playing relatively big minutes on bummed knees, and I dont think they'd care much about salaries.


I would wait though. Portland has generally been a stand up franchise when handling its players. They have been exceptionally patient and understanding with Oden, and they managed to smooth things over with Fernandez. Emotions are running high right now. Roy has to accept the bumpy road that is in front of him and the reality that he may never return to form. It is heartbreaking to know what you could have done and have chance take that away from you, but guys like Eddie Jones have played on bum knees and still contributed, so Roy, if he doesnt return to form (and lets all hope that he does), can still earn a living in the NBA, and I think Portland would be more than happy to provide him with a home.

Lets wait and see. I can see Roy playing in Portland for years to come if he isnt forced into retirement.

Lets all hope for the best and let emotions cool down.

Your best bet with that would be getting an injury settlement within a few years...and in the mean time get average production at best. Would be a horrible trade for the Sixers.

No. The Bulls don't need Roy. They need a catch-and-shoot 2-guard, not a ballhandling 2 like Roy. Roy + another ballhandler doesn't work.

Cavs (BD) and Nets (D-Will) same thing.

I would actually like to see him with the T-Wolves, because that's the franchise that traded him away for Randy Foye. Their point guard situation will have to be monitored though. If it's a Billups-type PG, I say go for it.

I'm talking about play, not money. What I'm saying is Grant Hill was a walking injury waiting to happen. Now that he plays with Phoenix, he missed about 6 games in 3 years. If grant hill can do it, I'm pretty sure Roy can.

I dont think its gonna be a divorce jus yet.. Problem with some of these players they come back from injuries too early risking a high chance of re-injuring it.. I know they wanna look like a warrior or tough guy but you gotta be smart as well.. Brandon Roy needs to just get healthy amd come back strong forget about playing now cuz he can only make things worse..

I'm talking about play, not money. What I'm saying is Grant Hill was a walking injury waiting to happen. Now that he plays with Phoenix, he missed about 6 games in 3 years. If grant hill can do it, I'm pretty sure Roy can.

Well ignoring the money part of it is...stupid. I'm sure he can keep playing, but not even close to the level needed to justify the contract he signed. If Hill was making what Roy will make the next few years, you'd be begging for his retirement.

Not only that, it's a completely different injury, so I don't know why you are comparing them. Roy's injury is more similar to Chris Webber's knee injury. You know, the one that crippled him and his career.

And I brought up Hill, cuz he was known for nothing but injuries. But you see his play now, imagine if he was 10 years younger.

How about your training staff work on getting VC back to health?

Paul still has cartilage though. He is a few years away from being in Roy's situation.

No training staff can fix it dude. Its bone on bone in his knees. Paul has a few years left, Roy is basically done. I hope I am wrong, and there something comes out that can help Roy, but as of now, he is a totally limited player, both minutes, and effectiveness wise

he's not going anywhere, have you seen him play? he can hardly run, doesn't get off the floor when he tries to elevate, plus he recently signed a huge contract that would be paying him around 15 million annually. Nobody would want that

Im going to bump this in a few months when Roy gets traded for Rashard Lewis

his contract is insured for his knees so really anyone could take him

thats the key difference between suns signing amare and potentially trading for roy, amare's knees aren't insured. roy's are. roy or michael redd are worth a shot to try in phoenix, maybe. we would no longer have the cap space for a pf unless portland took back warrick, which they may consider doing considering the fact that roy's contract is very bad now

Isn't Dejuan Blair's knees bone on bone as well? And its not just the training staff that keeps guys like Nash and G-Hill healthy. They have to put in the corrective exercises, the table work, and have incredibly disciplined diet. I think Roy can still play, he just needs the combination of a great physical trainer and discipline & determination.

P.S: Why can't the Blazers keep their players healthy???

He won't be with the Bulls, that's for sure. We have no cap space, and we have no pieces that the Blazers would want in a trade. I also highly doubt the Bulls would want to trade for him & his contract.

So, he's definitely not coming to Chicago.

Are u serious they would trade him for a veal meal at mcdonalds at this point

he is not gonna be cleared by doctors when the trade phisical tests are displayed.

Portland is stuck with Him.

that is true, actually.

The Bulls would be an awesome choice for him. They obviously don't need him to be the Roy of 2 years back with Rose being there, but even if he was in a wheelchair he's a big upgrade over Bogans. Damn, the Bulls can go after JR too

I dont see Roy going anywhere. He's loved in that city and I still have faith that he can somehow resurrect his career.

not leaving and he's untradeable. The Blazers always had problems somehow, i think of all teams being royally screwed, first comes

1) Los Angeles Clippers






2) Portland Trailblazers
yea, thats about right. The coach is out of his mind for not playing Roy. can u say best 8th man ever?

I think it's obvious at this point that Brandon Roy and the Trail Blazers will divorce. Roy told reporters last night that he had to keep himself from crying on the bench. Mcmillian has lost all faith in what used to be their franchises best player. And with the addition of Wallace, Roy really isn't needed.

What I'm not sure of, is where will Roy end up? Who's willing to take on his salary given his injury history?

The Bulls come to mind. They have a little cap room, and are in desperate need of a SG. The Cavs, Wolves and Nets may be desperate enough. But I'm not sure in any direction. Let me know where you think he will end up, and why? Or maybe the Blazers just wont be able to move him.

Roy is headed to San Antonio or Pheonix.
