Former Blazer Brandon Roy working towards an NBA return

Former Portland Trailblazer, Brandon Roy has announced his intent to return to the NBA. Roy retired before the ’11-’12 NBA season began due to knee issues but announced that he was planning to make a comeback on his friend, Will Conroy’s Twitter.

“Lord willing, I will play again soon,” Roy wrote in a series of tweets. “Yes, I’m preparing for a comeback. I’m training daily. I’m preparing for a return next year. I appreciate the love. Hopefully I’ll be back on the floor soon. Health is good.”

When asked by a fan if he could return to the Portland Trailblazers, Roy said it’s highly unlikely he’d return to the Blazers for next season:

“I wish, but due to the NBA rules I cannot play in Portland until 2014-2015,” Roy tweeted. “I’m looking to return sooner. Thanks for your support. I’m fortunate to have played for such a great fan base. No matter where I play, Portland will always have a special place in my heart.”

Roy is scheduled to take part in Jamal Crawford’s pro-am league that takes place in Seattle this weekend.
