Report: Brandon Roy will make his comeback attempt with Timberwolves

The Minnesota Wild aren't the only pro team in the Land of 10,000 Lakes to make a big splash this week. Not to be outdone, their NBA brethren, the Timberwolves, appear to have reached an agreement with former Portland Trail Blazers All-Star guard Brandon Roy, who retired last December because of a degenerative knee condition.

Jason Quick of The Oregonian tweeted:

Roy isn't a sure thing because of his knee, but the interest shown in him by several teams suggests that he can still be a productive NBA player.

The T-Wolves also are rumored to be in the hunt for another Trail Blazer, restricted free agent forward Nicolas Batum [UPDATE: The AP reports that the two sides have agreed to a deal], although new Portland general manager Neil Olshey on Thursday told Batum that the Blazers would match any offer.

UPDATE: Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com has the terms of the deal:

Agent Greg Lawrence tells Quick that the money is actually in the "ballpark" of $10.4 million.
