ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted minutes ago that the Grizzlies are in a three way trade with New Orleans and Philadelphia that would send Xavier Henry to New Orleans, two draft picks to Philadelphia and bring Mareese Speights to Beale St.

More later as this story develops, but quick reax: WOW!

Clears up the logjam on the wings a bit with a promising but unproven Xavier Henry. Better yet, it gives us that much needed backup center, and if the second unit fulfills the promise we’ve seen so far this season, makes the Grizzlies one of the deeper benches in the league.

Stay tuned . . .

    What about outside shooting? We clearly got weaker in already weak area. Although, I was beginning to wonder if Xavier just had no desire to play for us as, I can’t remember the last time he suited up. Not to mention the mysterious knee ailment from last year that required no surgery but, he missed the rest of the season? I just want to see a shooter in Memphis. Oh well, I guess i will settle for depth.

    I don’t like it, with the possibility OJ not being back after this season we need to keep X and develop him. He has shown flashes of his talent when he has played.

    I love it. Now we should be solid up front. I didn’t see any reason to waste any more time on X.

    With Randolph down for two months I was hoping they would trade for demarcus cousins who is demanding a trade from sac. Cousins is much more talented than spates. I thought x might be the future but not too bummed he is getting the boot. This season is looking like playoffs are a long shot now.
