Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Thursday 3 March 2016 at 8:30 pm

When the Memphis Grizzlies dealt Courtney Lee and Jeff Green at the trade deadline, most “experts” laughed at the return outside of the draft picks (a first rounder and four second rounders).  But, 25-year old shooting guard Lance Stephenson, 23-year old shooting guard P.J. Hairston and 37-year old center Chris Andersen are all playing good for the Grizzlies.  Stephenson has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far and he is averaging 22.5 minutes, 11.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.  He is shooting an impressive 51.8% from the floor for the Grizzlies so far.  Hairston has played in 7 games (6 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 22.1 minutes, 9.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  Andersen has played in 7 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 16.7 minutes, 4.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.  The Grizzlies’ front office is looking like they really knew what they were doing at the trade deadline last month!
