Brandon Roy Rumors: Golden State Still Interested, Lakers Not So Much

Folks in the greater Northwest area have been wondering whether or not Brandon Roy will be making a return to the NBA, and he keeps plugging along with his workouts in California, hoping to get a chance. He has some teams taking a look at him, while some others have said thanks but no thanks.

Make the jump to see what's good with Roy's return to the NBA.

According to a report from ESPN's Dave McMenamin, the Los Angeles Lakers are in fact not interested in the services of the currently retired guard.

According to a source familiar with the team's thinking, the Lakers are not interested in Roy, the former Portland Trail Blazers All-Star guard who retired last December because of knee troubles. Roy, who turns 28 next month, has been working out in L.A. this summer in hopes of returning to the league.

Some teams, such as the Golden State Warriors, are said to still be eyeing Roy as he tries to make a return to the NBA, but comes with a significant amount of risk with his very troublesome history of knee problems. His ties with current W's GM and former agent Bob Meyers makes Golden State seem like the most likely landing spot, but at this point it's hard too gauge intersted in a retired player as the NBA draft is in full swing.

Hopefully a team will be willing to give Roy a chance.
