The 27-year-old guard reportedly met with Blazers officials on Monday to discuss his future with the team. According to ESPN, the versatile guard told team executives that he felt great and was ready to report to training camp on Friday.

"Our plan is that Brandon will be a part of this team going forward," Blazers president Larry Miller said Monday.

Roy played in just 47 games last year due to knee issues. In 2009-10, he was limited to just 65 games for the Trail Blazers. Once considered one of the games rising stars, Roy will end his career after just six seasons.

A three-time All-Star, Roy was named the 2006-07 NBA Rookie of the Year after being drafted sixth overall in the 2006 NBA Draft. Roy’s best season came in 2008-09 when at the age of 24 he averaged 22.6 points and 5.1 assists in 78 games for Portland.
