Roy to Return as Assistant Coach for Blazers?

The dark horse for the Portland Trail Blazers vacant assistant coaching position is Brandon Roy: The 2006-07 NBA Rookie of the Year told CSNNW.com back in January that he would love to get into the coaching profession immediately if his knees were unable to hold up, ending his playing career, which coupled with Roy’s recent release from the Minnesota Timberwolves only further justifies his retirement.
Unlike most All-Stars who have dominated this league using their athleticism, Roy did it mostly with his smarts and knowing how to play angles on both sides of the ball. Players that played the game from the neck up, tend to be better coaches. Plus, it would be a great story in Portland.
