The Memphis Grizzlies lose Jarell Martin for the rest of the playoffs

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 8:27 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 21-year old rookie power forward Jarell Martin for the rest of the playoffs due to a left foot injury.  Martin played in 2 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies in the playoffs and he averaged 23.0 minutes, 4.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  Martin played in 27 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies during the regular season and he averaged 14.1 minutes, 5.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  This will hurt the Grizzlies, as they need all the help that they can get against the Spurs.

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 1:13 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Xavier Munford to a 10-day contract.  Munford played in 41 games (37 starts) earlier this year for the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League and he averaged 33.7 minutes, 20.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has now played in 88 games (52 starts) in his first two years in the D-League and he is averaging 27.4 minutes, 15.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  He has yet to play in the NBA yet.

The Memphis Grizzlies add a couple of reinforcements

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:07 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 24-year old point guard Ray McCallum and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson (to a 10-day contract).  McCallum played in 31 games (3 starts) earlier this year for the Kings and he averaged 8.3 minutes, 2.2 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.1 assists per game.  He has now played in 144 games (43 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 18.0 minutes, 5.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.  McCallum and Briante Weber will likely share the point guard spot until Mike Conley returns to action (which is going to be a while).  Stephenson gives the Grizzlies a much needed big man.  He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Clippers earlier this year and he averaged 3.0 minutes, 0.5 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocked shots per game for them.  He also played in 31 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Iowa Energy of the D-League and he averaged 34.2 minutes, 15.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 blocked shots per game.  Stephenson could get into the rotation as a backup player for the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Chris Andersen indefinitely

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 6:01 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 37-year old center Chris Andersen indefinitely due to a separated shoulder.  Andersen has played in 9 games (4 starts) for the Grizzlies since they acquired him from the Heat and he is averaging 16.9 minutes, 4.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  Until Andersen can return to action, look for 31-year old center Ryan Hollins to play more.  Hollins has played in 20 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.1 minutes, 3.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Saturday 12 March 2016 at 5:57 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without 28-year old point guard Mike Conley for the next 3-4 weeks due to Achilles tendinitis.  He has played in 56 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he is averaging 31.4 minutes, 15.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game.  The loss of Conley combined with the loss of Mario Chalmers puts the Grizzlies in dire straits at point guard.  Newly signed 23-year old rookie Briante Weber made his Grizzlies’ and NBA debut in last night’s win and he played 40 minutes in which he scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out seven assists.  He also stole the ball once and blocked a shot.

The Memphis Grizzlies sign Briante Weber

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 9 March 2016 at 2:09 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old point guard Briante Weber to a 10-day contract.  Weber played in 21 games (8 starts) for the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the D-League and he averaged 27.8 minutes, 10.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game.  The Grizzlies are running out of healthy bodies, so Weber could get a chance to show what he can do the next couple of weeks.

The Memphis Grizzlies have dealt Tony Wroten to the 76ers

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Friday 23 August 2013 at 6:18 pm

The Grizzlies have dealt 20-year old shooting guard Tony Wroten to the 76ers for a future heavily protected future 2nd round pick.  Wroten played in 35 games (0 starts) as a rookie for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 7.8 minutes, 2.6 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.  He only shot 38.4% from the floor, 25% from the three point line and 72.4% from the free throw line last year…..which was not good.  Wroten was a first round pick (#25 overall) in the 2012 NBA Draft, so he has to be looked as a failure with the Grizzlies.  To be fair though, he didn’t get enough time to show what he can really do on the basketball court.

The Memphis Grizzlies sign Mike Miller

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 25 July 2013 at 5:41 pm

The Grizzlies have signed 33-year old SG/SF Mike Miller.  Miller played in 59 games (17 starts) for the Heat last year and he averaged 15.3 minutes, 4.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.  He also shot 41.7% from the three point line as he still has a good shooting stroke.  Miller has now played in 831 games (549 starts) in his first 13 years in the NBA and he is averaging 29.9 minutes, 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.  Miller has shot 46.1% from the floor, 40.7% from three point range and 76.7% from the free throw line so far in his NBA career.  Miller played six years earlier in his career with the Grizzlies.  Miller has played in 371 games (277 starts) for the Grizzlies and he averaged 32.0 minutes, 14.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.  Miller is the Grizzlies’ all-time leader in three point shots made with 737 of them.  He is also #9 in games played (371), #8 in defensive rebounds (1,584), #10 in total rebounds (1,813), #5 in assists (1,221) and #5 in points scored (5,403) in Grizzlies’ history.  This was a good move for the Grizzlies as Miller should be able to help them off the bench in 2013-14, as long as his back holds up.

The Memphis Grizzlies have claimed Josh Akognon off waivers

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 25 July 2013 at 5:36 pm

The Grizzlies have claimed 27-year old point guard Josh Akognon off waivers from the Mavericks.  Akognon played in 3 games (0 starts) as a rookie for the Mavericks last year and he averaged 3.0 minutes, 1.7 points, 0.3 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.  Akognon will have to look good in training camp to win a roster spot with the Grizzlies for the 2013-14 season.

The Memphis Grizzlies acquire Nick Calathes from the Mavericks

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Monday 22 July 2013 at 10:00 pm

The Grizzlies have acquired 24-year old point guard Nick Calathes from the Mavericks for a 2nd round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.  Calathes was the #45 overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft by the Timberwolves.  Calathes played in 61 games in Europe last year and he averaged 30.6 minutes, 14.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  Calathes is planning on coming stateside to play for the Grizzlies in 2013-14.  I like this deal for the Grizzlies as Calathes has some talent.
