Brandon Roy Rumors: Former All-Star Voices Interest In Lakers

Former All-Star Brandon Roy hasn't played in the NBA since the 2010-11 season, but is contemplating a return to the game he loves, voicing some interest in playing with the Los Angeles Lakers next season. That is, of course, if they will have him.

The New York Post's Peter Vecsey tweeted about Roy's possible return, as did ESPN's Chris Palmer, though for a player who retired in his mid-20's he is certainly going to have to impress if an NBA team is to take a gamble on him.

Roy told KGW in Portland last month that he has indeed been working out again, and misses the NBA. Still a return to professional sports with his chronically bad knees is uncertain.

"In the back of my mind, maybe this is something I may do again. But who knows? It's something right now where I'm enjoying playing and not playing with the pain I had last year after going through two knee surgeries. I was never the fastest or the highest leaper but being smart - those are all little things I have up my sleeve if I do decide to play, those are all positives I do have going for me."
