Grizzlies ‘Seriously Considering’ Michael Porter Jr.

Published

The Memphis Grizzlies are “seriously considering” selecting Michael Porter Jr. with the 4th overall pick in next week’s NBA Draft, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick.

The Sacramento Kings also have legitimate interest in Porter at the 2nd overall pick, so Porter may be gone before Memphis is even on the clock, assuming that they stay put in the 4th spot.

On Friday, reports circulated that Memphis was looking to trade out of the 4th overall pick, putting a whole new wrinkle in the Top 4 spots of the draft.

Grizzlies’ Joakim Noah Says He Was “Too Lit To Play In New York”

Published

Memphis Grizzlies center Joakim Noah is happy to finally be back on the court, and in action, following his departure from the New York Knicks recently.

While things didn’t pan out for Noah in New York, who waived him prior to the start of the season by using the stretch provision on the remainder of his deal, Noah says he was too much for New York, believing it wasn’t a fit for him either.

“I remember after the first game (in New York) I probably had like 60 people in my house,” Noah said, according to Grind City Media’s Chris Vernon. “I’m too lit to play in New York City. Memphis is perfect for me.”

“We were lit in Chicago, but I was young. You recover faster, you know?”

Noah also discussed his departure from New York.

“It happened so fast,” Noah said. “One year I’m playing 35 minutes a game. And then injuries started piling up. I got this crazy deal with the Knicks, and then the next thing you know I’m not playing anymore. Get kicked off the team. It was a crazy time. I wasn’t sure I was gonna get an opportunity to play again.”

Noah, who has looked much better during his stint with Memphis, is glad to be playing for the Grizzlies.

“I got the call from Memphis. … I decided that this was a good fit,” Noah said. “I’m just really, really happy to be here.”

Grizzlies Signing Joakim Noah

The Memphis Grizzlies are signing veteran center Joakim Noah late next week, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The Grizzlies have engaged in “extensive discussions” with Noah, 33, since he was officially waived by the New York Knicks back in October, who stretched Noah’s $19.3 million salary for this season across three years.

Noah appeared in only 53 games over two years with the Knicks, who inked him to a four-year $72 million contract in 2016.

In a corresponding move, Memphis waived Andrew Harrison last month to create the necessary roster spot to accommodate the signing of Noah.

Grizzlies Waive Andrew Harrison

The Memphis Grizzlies have waived guard Andrew Harrison who will become an unrestricted free agent if no team puts in a claim on him by Sunday, according to an official press release issued by the team on Thursday.

Harrison, 24, has been backing up point guard Mike Conley during his stint in Memphis, but has since fallen out of the rotation due to a healthy Conley and the addition of Shelvin Mack, who has become the primary backup point guard, as well as rookie Jevon Carter.
