Brandon Roy
 
Read an article stating the Bulls are one of the teams interested in signing Brandon Roy.

I'm all for it as long as he passes a physical obviously, looks good in a workout, and costs us the veteran's minimum or just a little bit over.

This is the definition of a low cost possibly high reward deal.

How is he able to come back now? I'm all for it if it's cheap and it's a short term deal to see how he plays. If he can produce even as a 6th man then sign him to a better deal.

Is he going to have that Kobe surgery?

He's been rehabilitating for a long time now. I'd take him.

I'd take him for 20-25 minutes a night. Limit him throughout the whole season so that he's fresher for the playoffs. Limit his minutes to important minutes in the 4th quarter or in close games. Have him be RIP's backup. Have him be the secondary ball handler.

Limit his minutes for the majority of the season, but then later in the season if or when Rose returns gradually increase his playing time a bit to build that chemistry with Derrick.

Basketball wise it would definitely work, just hope that he's relatively healthy and can handle the load of an NBA season even if it means playing half the minutes he was used to he could still be very valuable.

I read that he did do the same procedure Kobe did last offseason that had people excited about how Kobe regained some of his athleticism going into last season and I do believe we saw a fresher, healthier, a little quicker and a more explosive Kobe last season compared to the 1-2 seasons before hand.

Hopefully Roy is doing well. He's a class act of a person and a great player who impacts the game in a lot of different ways.

If the Bulls feel confident he's somewhat healthy I would surely welcome him.
