The Second Coming: Brandon Roy Set to Make His Return-Just Not with Portland
Roy, now 27, is still in the prime of his career, should his knees permit him to enjoy it. In his five seasons in the NBA, Roy never played a full year, and was rarely seen without some type of brace.
If Roy can make his triumphant return, it will have to be with a different franchise, as he also confirmed on Twitter that the NBA does not permit him to return to the only team he has ever known: the Portland Trailblazers.
"Due to the NBA rules I cannot play in Portland until 2014-2015, I’m looking to return sooner."
Just another blow to a franchise that has experienced all types of pain throughout the years.
