That setback was followed by another and another and another until it became clear to all of us that he wouldn't be back on the floor for the Minnesota Timberwolves, ever again.
He didn't return in 2012-13 and shortly after Flip Saunders took over for David Kahn, Roy was released.
Roy said in an interview just last night, that his basketball days are 'numbered'. My guess is that his NBA days are over and he may play a pickup game or two with some of his buddies over the summers (ie: Jamal Crawford).
Roy could also stay around basketball as a college head coach, an NBA assistant coach or take up a position in a front office somewhere in the League. Needless to say, I don't think we'll see him suit up for an NBA squad ever again.
