Darrell Arthur Set To Sign Three-Year, $9M Deal With Grizzlies
Darrell Arthur, still recovering from a torn right Achilles suffered last December, is set to sign a three-year contract worth more than $9 million.
"It's a business and I've been hurt," said Arthur, who missed four months during the 2009-10 season because of surgery to repair a partially torn right pectoral muscle. "But I wanted a two- or three-year contract. I'm happy with what they offered because I wasn't really looking at any other team. I've already established myself in Memphis with the owner, the GM and the coach. All I was thinking about was coming back."
Arthur is on track to be ready for training camp in October.
"Coming off two injuries, you never think you'd get a contract like this. A lot of teams probably wouldn't deal with you," Arthur said. "Memphis has faith in me and I have faith in myself. ... The doctors say I'm ahead of schedule. I'm blessed. I just want to get back on the court and help us win games. We're on the right track."
