Brandon Roy Rumors: Ric Bucher Confirms Bulls' Interest In Former Blazer

While previous rumors had tied the two sides together, ESPN's Ric Bucher confirms that the Chicago Bulls have emerged as a potential suitor for free agent guard Brandon Roy's services. Roy retired last year due to knee problems, but he's reportedly considering a comeback if his health permits.

Portland amnestied Roy's contract last year after the 27-year-old decided to retire due to the condition of his knees, but he's since told teams that he's interested in returning to the NBA. Already, we've seen the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves show public interest, but they're not the only interested parties.

Previous reports had the Bulls, Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks being interested in addition to Golden State and Minnesota. Bucher spoke with sources that confirmed Chicago's interest, which makes sense given the team's need for backcourt help.
