NBA Free Agency 2012: Brandon Roy To Sign With Minnesota Timberwolves

Free agent shooting guard Brandon Roy has agreed to sign a two-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, as Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld reports. Roy retired last year due to the condition of his knees, but he recently announced his desire to return to the NBA after his health improved.

According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, the deal is worth $10.4 million, a pretty significant investment considering what he's been through. A year ago, Roy retired because his health had deteriorated so badly, but a few years ago he was one of the NBA's best players.

The move also removes a key option from the market for the Chicago Bulls, who had previously been considered one of the suitors for Roy's services. The Bulls could use someone with upside as a scorer and playmaker like Roy, but he's apparently decided to go play with Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio in Minnesota.
