Brandon Roy wants to play ‘soon’


Brand Roy took to twitter (on a friend’s account) Friday night so he could field fans’ questions and put out the news that he’s seeking a comeback sooner rather than later.

Hoops World has a great run down of his tweets here, but what Roy’s basically saying is that he wants to play earlier than the 2014-15 season (when he’d be eligible to return to the Portland Trail Blazers.

“I’m looking to return sooner” Roy tweeted, “Thanks for your support. I’m fortunate to have played for such a great fan base. No matter where I play, Portland will always have a special place in my heart.”

The Hoops World article says Roy is preparing to come back as early as next season.

It’s hard to figure out where Roy could land so early on in the process. He probably won’t command too large of a salary since he did retire because of bad knee issues. Even so, he proved he could at the very least come off the bench and will a team to victory on those bad knees.
