OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says the Golden State Warriors met with free agent Brandon Roy earlier this week about joining the team in his attempted comeback.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the talks were preliminary, also said the Warriors were hoping to meet with Roy again. Nothing was scheduled yet.
Roy, a three-time All-Star, announced his retirement in December after five seasons with Portland because of chronic knee problems. The 27-year-old has averaged 19 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 321 games.
Minnesota and Cleveland also have expressed an interest in Roy.
While he has only played for Portland, Golden State does offer some familiarity. Roy used to be represented by new Warriors general manager Bob Myers, a former sports agent.
