Report: Roy to Retire Because of Knees
Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy is expected to announce his retirement due to degenerative knees, perhaps as soon as Friday, sources have told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard.
The Blazers had said earlier in the week they were expecting Roy to be ready for training camp Friday.
Roy, who has had trouble with his knees, met with team executives Monday to discuss his future. He told them he felt great and wanted to help the team in any way he could.
