While this is small news, someone out here cares about the player movement of ex-Los Angeles Clippers players.
In the wake of Mike Conley Jr.’s ankle injury, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports the Memphis Grizzlies will sign free agent guard Darius Morris to a 10-day contract.
As you know, Morris recently played for the Clippers, being signed to a 10-day contract in a similar situation as this, with Chris Paul going down a shoulder injury. In his 10-game tenure, Morris had little impact scoring a total of nine points and collecting five assists. After two consecutive 10-day contracts, the Clips were forced to choose between keeping or releasing Morris as the third contract after two 10-days is permanent.
With Nick Calathes playing well it’s unclear how big of an impact he’ll have on Memphis, but it’s always nice to see young players get opportunities to display their talents in live NBA action.
He’ll join the team on Monday when they take on Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
