Timberwolves Waive Brandon Roy

null

The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived guard Brandon Roy, likely bringing an end to an All-Star career that was shortened by knee problems.

The Timberwolves announced the move Friday. Roy retired before last season due to knee issues, then attempted a comeback with the Timberwolves this season after going through a procedure that gave him hope that the chronic pain in his knees would be reduced.

But after a promising training camp, Roy's knee issues returned early in the regular season. He played just five games.

The second season of the two-year contract Roy signed with the Wolves was not guaranteed, making his release inevitable.

The 28-year-old Roy was a three-time All-Star with the Portland Trail Blazers.
