Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Flip Saunders continues to clean house and today he did the expected: waiving Brandon Roy.
Roy was yet another failed experiment under David Kahn.
Brandon retired after being amnestied by the Portland Trailblazers. He took a season off and then signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves this past summer. He played through the entire preseason and the first five games of the season before re-injuring his knees that ultimately shut him down for the season.
In five games with the Wolves Roy averaged 5.8ppg, 2.8rpg & 4.6apg in 24.4mpg.
New President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders: "We wish Brandon and his family all the best in the future."
While Roy had said late in the season that he hoped to return to the court, most assume that being released by the Timberwolves effectively ends his NBA career.
As the Wolves seem to do every summer, the search for a shooting guard starts over again this summer. One rumored name has been O.J. Mayo. Flip is reportedly a big fan. However, if he truly wants Mayo, he'll have to clear some cap space.
