The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 23-year old SF JaKarr Sampson.  Sampson played in 73 games (40 starts) for the 76ers and Nuggets last year in which he averaged 15.9 minutes, 5.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.  Sampson has now played in 147 games (72 starts) in his first two years in the NBA and he is averaging 15.6 minutes, 5.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.  Sampson could be able to help the Grizzlies off the bench, so he was a nice guy to take a flier on.
