Hudson Sought More Guaranteed Money From Cleveland's Contract Offer

Apr 21, 2012 12:00 PM

Lester Hudson left the Cavaliers and signed with the Grizzlies this week following the expiration of his second 10-day contract.

Sources say Hudson didn't want to sign Cleveland's offer of a contract with a team option for 12-13 without more guaranteed money.

Teams are increasingly seeking two-year deals where the second-year is not fully guaranteed because it also becomes a trade chip.

Grizzlies Win 'Statement Game' Against Clippers

Apr 10, 2012 10:48 AM

The Clippers and Grizzlies could meet in the first round of the playoffs, which made Monday's matchup an important test from the perspective of Rudy Gay.

Memphis hadn't defeated the Clippers this season before their 94-85 victory in which six players scored in double figures.

"We had no chance of winning the tiebreaker against them," said Gay. "We knew that, but we still wanted to beat them. It was a statement game. We know we can beat them. We knew that the first two games, we just didn't play well."
