Going to the team who didn't want him during the draft and traded him for Randy Foye for no particular reason, in a trade that still makes absolutely no sense (it was 6 for 7 straight up)? I don't get NBA players.


That being said, I doubt he'll be even close to his old self. Kind of wish he wouldn't come back, unless he's much healthier than I think he is.

Brandon Roy has come to a verbal agreement with Minnesota according to a person in Roy's family

Expect the Roy deal to be for two years. #Twolves were willing to go more than one. Also expect there to be protection in case his knees go.

The wolves are the last team I thought he would go to. That team gave him up in the draft like he was nothing for Randy Foye.

Either way, I knew he wouldn't be gone for long. Hope it all works out for him. He was such a beast and 3rd best SG behind Wade and Kobe.

What makes all these people chasing Roy believe he's goiNg to last? My bet is the guy falls apart by 20-25 games if he's lucky.

Roy was one of my favorite players, but him coming out of no where like This and having so many teams interested just seems like a waste of everyones time.

We havnt heard anything about any stipulations, are those even allowed under the new cba?

Seriously, why are teams so amped up over Roy? It's only a matter of time before he's out again. I'm not understanding teams interest in Roy, especially for a multi-year deal.

Mid way into the year Roy will retire again. This is no dif then any other retired player who attempts a comeback. He has been working out and felt good but when games start adding up he wont be able to handle it.

well, any performance based or injury provisions have always been allowed, the monster majority of players don't tolerate them.

I am excited to a minimal degree. I think his knees are crap, and the only way he succeeds is limited minutes and rest, two things Adelman sucks at.

I'm still baffled how he can even return to basketball after getting multiple confirmations that if he continued playing last year, he wouldn't be able to walk. I don't see him lasting very long but I do hope he does; he's from my state.

What players Have had injury provisions?

I just can't support a multi year deal for Roy, it's clear to me no one else offered him anything close to a 10 mill, this comes off as desperate on the twolves part IMO.

I do wish the best for him though, he was really to watch.

injury provisions can be put into any contract. They are just very, very uncommon. I believe Grant Hill had one.

Desperate is fine. We are that at this point, with a 71 year old owner, 66 year old coach, and a GM running out of time. That being said, we have the money and flexibility. Is Roy my favorite target? Absolutely not.

Hoping he can play 65 games at 20-27 mpg, and be cool for the playoffs if we make it. But the rational side of me says he is wasted money.

Not trying to be rude, but there's a reason why me and you as well as everyone on PSD is on a sports forum. Obviously teams saw something in Roy. I would imagine we would have some type of clause, even if we don't, I like this deal. There's much worse contracts i've seen already this offseason, i'll take a flier on Roy any day of the week.

Brandon Roy Athletic Knee Injury Repair using Stem Cell Therapy

Imagine being one of the top athletes in your profession. You have every move, play, and defensive strategy mastered. But tragically, early in your stellar career you extend your knee beyond its threshold. Your ACL and Meniscus tear and you are left with one option surgery that will only allow you to walk again but never return to your sport. This was the case for Brandon Roy. In 2011 Roy had to retire from basketball because his knees were degenerating. However, stem cell therapy could help Brandon return to his knee and career to prosperity.
How may you ask? The answer is behind a variety of stem cells and progenitor cells sequestered deep in your bones. The most abundant source is in the iliac crest. Once a sample of bone marrow is removed it can be separated to obtain stem cells. These cells have the ability to restore and correct the knee damage.
Cells that are isolated from the bone marrow consist of Mesenchymal and Hematopoietic stem cells (MSC and HSC), Endothelial progenitor cells, and platelets. When these cells are introduced into the knee, they work together as a team to repair damaged areas. MSCs can directly turn into cartilage and bone, and repopulate the knee with healthy tissue. These regenerating cells are directed to the foci of the injury by signaling molecules found in the platelets. Endothelial progenitors can form new blood vessels from pre-existing blood vessels to extend the network of blood and perfuse new tissue with the circulating oxygen and nutrients necessary for survival.
After bone marrow derived stem cells are introduced into the knee: tendons and ligaments that were once frayed will slowly mend; damaged femoral head, tibia, and fibula that were once rough will become smooth; and synovial fluid or fatty tissue that cushions your knees increases in size. After six months the patient can expect increased performance in their knees.
Athletes should explore stem cell therapies as an alternative to invasive knee surgery. Extensive scientific research has demonstrated stem cells to be effective in bringing the knee to better health. Patients suffering from knee injuries such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and ACL injuries should consult a physician to see how stem cell therapies could better their symptoms. Stem cells therapy is the most promising avenue for true regeneration and is on the path to becoming the standard for knee repair.

I wish him the best and hope his knees hold up. There have actually been a number of players with very severe knee problems who played well into their 30's.

Kobe for example is playing with basically zero cartilage. Do a search on Jeff Hornacek and Bob Lanier. It's possible, but Roy's situation will require constant monitoring. Good luck, B!

you are award his surgery was March 12, correct? He has been healing 4 months now. Timeline for ACL surgery is 6-9 months. There is no way Rubio misses the season. None. Will he be near 100% by the start of the season? Only if he is a very fast healer. My guess is by Christmas he is starting and playing 30 mpg, possibly 100% by March.

Portland seemingly turned down a decent offer for Batum in a sign and trade so I don't think Minny could offer anyone short of Rubio or Love that will convince the Blazers to deal him.

Darren Wolfson: #Twolves source says the 2nd yr on Roy's contract is not guaranteed. He only gets the $ if he can play. More nuggets coming in a story soon. Twitter

good to hear as a Wolves fan.

lol why do you pple keep mentioning rubio the dude is hurt? lol he aint playing next year man.

Balkis, even JJ Barea would be completely ashamed and embarrassed to have you as a fan.

Do you even know what an ACL is? Hell, at this point, I am doubting you know where the human knee is located.
