JaMychal Green Signing Three-Year Deal With Grizzlies

Mar 1, 2015 1:43 PM

JaMychal Green has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources told RealGM.

Green completed his second 10-day contract with the Grizzlies on Saturday night, and the two sides reached a deal for the remainder of the season guaranteed and two additional years.

As one of the best performers in the NBA Development League this season, Green averaged 23 points and 10.7 rebounds in 20 games for the Austin Spurs. Over three games with the Grizzlies, the 6-foot-8 Green has scored eight points and grabbed five rebounds in 13 minutes of action.

Green joined the Grizzlies on Feb. 2 as a free agent. He previously appeared in four games with the San Antonio Spurs on a 10-day contract.

Out of Alabama, Green went unselected in the 2012 NBA Draft before signing free-agent deals with the Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers in consecutive summers. The 24-year-old solidified himself as a viable NBA player in the July summer league and preseason play.

Warriors, Hawks, Blazers In Top-10 On Both Offense, Defense

Feb 12, 2015 12:50 PM

The Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers enter the All-Star break as the only three teams in the NBA ranked in the top-10 in both offense and defense.

Fourteen other teams are in the top-10 in either offensive or defensive efficiency.

The Chicago Bulls ranked second in defensive efficiency last season and 28th on offense, but they are currently 9th on offense and just 13th on defense.

Teams that contend for a championship in the NBA typically are in the top-10 in both categories, or are particularly dominant on one end of the floor.

The current top-10 in efficiency differential consists of the Warriors, Hawks, Clippers, Mavericks, Blazers, Grizzlies, Raptors, Spurs, Rockets and Cavaliers.

The old/young distinction is based on the average age of players who play 15 or more minutes per game.

Marc Gasol Prioritizes Winning Championship For Free Agency Decision

Jan 29, 2015 1:00 AM

Pau Gasol believes his brother Marc will prioritize a winning situation when he makes his free agency decision in July. Marc Gasol will be an unrestricted free agent with the Memphis Grizzlies.

"Marc wants to win a championship," Pau said. "That's what he's looking for. That's what's most important to him. I don't know if you think the Lakers will be in a position to win a championship next year or not.

"But he knows what he'll be looking for as a free agent—or maybe he'll stay in Memphis because they have built a very good team already there with some very good pieces. He'll know what he wants, and he will be ready to make his decision."

Pau offered little reason to believe the Los Angeles Lakers will be on Marc's wish list.
