According to Shams Charania of RealGM , the Grizzlies have signed 6’10″ (profile says 6’9″, agent release about contract says 6’10″…hmmm) forward Willie Reed from the NBA D-League Springfield Armor. Per the article, the contract is for the rest of the season, with details beyond “still being worked out”.
Nothing earth-shattering, although this does make it a bit easier for Hollins to shorten the leash on Ed Davis even further, and on Darrell Arthur if he makes mistakes, gets in foul trouble, or if his body is not right (most likely case).
In any case, this signing should give us another Tarence Kinsey/Hamed Haddadi/Chris Johnson folk hero for whom to cheer for a while.
Found this , which is pretty cool…could it be we’ve found another 6’9″ 220 guy to hit gamewinners?? Just kidding. sorta.
And no, to my knowledge, he’s not the son of one of the baddest men in NBA history.
