Grizzlies Signing Joakim Noah

Published

on

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’ Justin Holiday Now Feeling Comfortable with New Team

Memphis Grizzlies wing Justin Holiday has overcome some initial struggles with his new team following a trade from the Chicago Bulls back in January, and is feeling more comfortable.

Holiday has showed it on the court, with an improved play of late, and has become a key component of the Grizzlies’ rotation.

“You want to come in and do well and help the team,” Holiday said, according to Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic.

“That was the biggest thing for me, and feeling like you’re being a burden at times, which, it is what it is, but that was the hardest thing for me. Not playing at the level I normally do. But understanding that it comes with being traded. I just knew it was going to take time so it was just being patient and allowing myself to understand what we want to do here and allow myself to be helped.”

Holiday’s number in February tell the story, as he is averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this month.

“If I know the ins and outs of everyone’s position, where they’re supposed to be, that’s the player I am,” Holiday said. “I know everybody’s position in a play. So now I’m getting to the point where I know that and now I’m comfortable. If I know everything that’s going on, I’m good.”

Grizzlies, Hornets Working Towards Marc Gasol Trade

There is growing chatter about a potential trade that would send Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol to the Charlotte Hornets ahead of tomorrow’s NBA trade deadline.

According to the Sporting News’ Sean Deveney, there is growing skepticism that the two teams can work out a trade despite Gasol being held out of Tuesday’s game, leading many to believe that a trade was being finalized.

Per the report:

“But league sources told Sporting News that the Hornets and Grizzlies do not have an agreement in place, and that there is increasing skepticism on both sides that a trade can be brought to bear ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The Hornets have had interest in Gasol for some time, but a deal has not progressed.”

Gasol and teammate Mike Conley will almost certainly be moved by the deadline, but Gasol to the Hornets doesn’t seem like such a sure thing.
