According to Yahoo! Sports, a source has told the Associated Press that the Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to sign guard Brandon Roy, who is attempting a comeback.

The Cavaliers join the Minnesota Timberwolves, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Golden State Warriors as teams looking to sign the former all-star.

Roy was drafted by the Timberwolves with the sixth overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and was promptly traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for the draft rights to Randy Foye.

Roy played five seasons for Portland, winning Rookie of the Year in 2007 and being named an all-star the three following years. Due to chronic knee problems, he retired in 2011 following a first-round playoff loss to the Dallas Mavericks and a disappointing season in which he played only 45 games and averaged slightly over 12 points.

During the NBA lockout last year, he announced that he was attempting a comeback and has drawn significant interest from teams this offseason.

The Chicago Bulls met with Roy on Saturday, and according to, the Bulls are one of four finalists to land Roy. He met twice with the Golden State Warriors and Warriors' General Manager Bob Myers, Roy's former agent.

The Cavaliers drafted combo guard Dion Waiters with the fourth overall pick in the draft five days ago, and it remains uncertain what role Roy would play as a member of the Cavaliers.
