NBA Free Agency 2012: Bulls Among Finalists For Free Agent Brandon Roy

The Chicago Bulls, looking to bolster their backcourt depth with PG Derrick Rose likely to miss much of the season with a torn ACL, have been among the teams pursuing free agent G Brandon Roy. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Bulls are among the five finalists for Roy's services.

The Indiana Pacers, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves and Bulls are all hoping to acquire the 28-year-old Roy. He entered the league in 2006 as the No. 6 overall pick and spent his first five seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers, averaging 19.2 points and 4.7 assists per 36 minutes.

But Roy missed the 2011-12 NBA season with chronic knee problems, yet has since undergone the platelet-rich plasma therapy that restored Kobe Bryant's knees, Wojnarowski reports, which has piqued the interest of many NBA teams.
