Brandon Roy’s 2-year/$10 million contract pays him $5 million this season, but is not guaranteed for next season. Per Yahoo! Sports, the Timberwolves have been trying to include Roy’s contract into offers, using the non-guaranteed value of his 2013-14 year as a selling point. So far, they’ve been unsuccessful, reportedly being turned down by Denver after offering the injured, Brandon Roy and a first-round pick to the Nuggets for center, Timofey Mozgov.
