Ex-Timberwolves guard Troy Hudson ends comeback attempt, announces retirement


Sioux Falls Skyforce president Mike Heineman announced Thursday that guard Troy Hudson will retire, ending the 36-year-old’s comeback attempt.

The retirement appears related to a foot injury that has kept him out for weeks.

Hudson, who played parts of five seasons with the Timberwolves, began his NBA comeback attempt in late October. The Timberwolves reportedly signed Hudson with the sole intention of facilitating his move to the Skyforce.

He hasn’t played in the NBA since Golden State released him in January 2008.
