NBA Free Agency 2012: Cleveland Cavaliers Interested In Brandon Roy, According To Report

Citing an anonymous source, ESPN is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers have interest in free agent Brandon Roy. The Chicago Bulls are also interested in the former Portland guard, who is trying to make a comeback after retiring in 2011.

The Cavs have not yet set up a visit with Roy, said the person who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sides are only in preliminary discussions. Roy, a three-time All-Star, announced his retirement last season after five seasons with Portland because of chronic knee problems. After sitting out the lockout-condensed season, Roy wants to try and resume his once promising NBA career.
