Roy might be coming off the bench in the near future

The Trail Blazers are contemplating bringing Brandon Roy off the bench to start the second half of games, but the tactic is merely in the discussion stage, according to Roy and coach Nate McMillan.

McMillan said Roy would have to sign off on the move before he made it, and Roy said McMillan recently broached the subject. Roy said he thinks he should still start games, but would be open to letting a teammate - probably Nicolas Batum - start the second half.
However, it is clear Roy is a much different player. He is less mobile and has less lift, making him more of a jump shooter than the elite play maker he was while earning three consecutive All-Star team selections (2008-2010).

The Blazers no longer run an isolation offense for Roy, choosing rather to post him on the block or at the elbow. And on defense, Roy is having trouble stopping anyone.
