Grizzlies Interested in Avery Bradley

Published

The Memphis Grizzlies are preparing for free agency, like all other NBA teams are, and it seems that they have figured out who they plan to target once the free agency frenzy commences.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Grizzlies plan to target Avery Bradley, ranking him high among their free-agent targets.

Memphis is reportedly looking for wing upgrades with their mid-level exception.

Memphis could offer up to $8.6 million with the mid-level exception to obtain Bradley, which is where Bradley could find himself this offseason.

Along with Memphis, the Los Angeles Clippers are expected to pursue Bradley as they try to bring him back to the team this offseason.

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

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.

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.
