So,I'm thinking that if the Blazers really do want out they're going to have to tell Roy they don't want him around anymore. We're probably talking buyout now, not retirement. Roy would get a lump sum and the freedom to seek a new team, if he could find another soul willing to believe in himSince Roy has four years remaining on his contract, any buyout amount would be divided by four and that number would count against the Blazers' salary cap moving forward.

This sounds like a classic "Kahn" a term I'm using for a reclamation project. If the Blazers buyout Roy I seriously think we should pick him up and see what he's got left. The worst case scenario is that he sucks still and we still sucks.
If we could get both Oden and Roy we would be the ultimate Kahn team. I think it has been his dream since he got the job to start the NBA version of the "Outsiders"
In all seriousness though a 1,2 year flier on Roy hurts no one (assuming he is bought out form Blazers) and he could only make us better if he is healthy
