The Memphis Grizzlies sign Marcus Williams

The Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Marcus Williams to a 1-year deal. Williams only played in 9 games (0 starts) for the Warriors last season and he averaged 6.0 minutes, 1.3 points, 0.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. He has now played in 141 games (9 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 15.8 minutes, 6.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Williams was once thought of in New Jersey to be the heir apparent to Jason Kidd but that didn’t work out to well for them. Williams has only shot 38.6% from the floor in his NBA career so don’t expect miracles out of him. But, he’s still young and has plenty of time to wake up.

The Memphis Grizzlies acquire Steven Hunter from the Nuggets

The Grizzlies have acquired 27-year old center Steven Hunter and a first round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft from the Nuggets for a 2nd round pick. The Nuggets save $7.4 million bucks in this deal because of the luxury tax and it was worth a first round pick to them. Hunter did not play last season due to knee issues. He has now played in 379 games (130 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 15.4 minutes, 4.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.2 assists and 1.0 blocked shot per game. This was a good trade for the Grizzlies as it’s never a bad thing to get a 1st round pick in exchange for a 2nd rounder.
