A Yahoo! Sports report says former Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy will have at least a handful of teams to pick from once he decides to make an NBA comeback.
The Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers and Minnesota Timberwolves were listed as "serious suitors" in the Yahoo! report, with the Golden State Warriors also in contention.
Roy was waived via the NBA's amnesty clause to free up salary cap flexibility last winter. That move came after Roy announced he was retiring. Yahoo! reports Roy was pushed to stop playing by Blazers team doctors.
Due to NBA rules, the Blazers wouldn't be allowed to re-sign Roy until 2014.
The three-time All-Star played five NBA seasons for the Trail Blazers, cementing himself as one of the greatest players to ever suit up in Portland with career averages of 19.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.03 steals and 35.6 minutes in 321 career games (295 starts).
Roy led the Trail Blazers in scoring in three consecutive seasons from 2007-10. He became the first Trail Blazer since 1991-92 to rank among the NBA's top 10 scorers when his 22.6 points per game ranked 10th in the league in 2008-09.
