The Timberwolves, meanwhile, have had a hole to fill at the 2-guard position for some time. Wesley Johnson, Martell Webster and Wayne Ellington haven’t proven to be the answer, and point guard Luke Ridnour was even shifted out of position to fill the void last season.
(Brandon) Roy said that he met with Timberwolves executives and coach Rick Adelman for hours in advance of his decision to sign with Minnesota. While his role wasn’t in great detail, Roy said he was approaching the season like he would any other during his career and he didn’t sound like he has any intention of being a bit player.
“I didn’t make any demands or ask a question about starting,” he said of his meeting with Adelman. “I just always feel it’s going to be hard to keep me out of the starting lineup. That’s just my mentality as a player and how I feel right now.”
“And not just be in the starting lineup,” he added, chuckling. “Maybe get a few plays called for me. I just plan to work hard and put coach in a position where he has to play me.”
