Grizzlies reach three-year deal to keep Jon Leuer

Jon Leuer played a limited role for the Grizzlies last season, but they liked what they saw enough to bring him back.

The Grizzlies have reached a three-year, $3 million deal to bring Leuer back to the bench next year, according to Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal.

Lauer is a four who’s game is really going to be face up — 28 percent of his shots with the Grizzlies were spot ups and he hit half of them. He can work off the ball. He is not a guy who is going to get you points in the post, but he can work well off the pick-and-roll.

At that price, this is a nice move by Memphis.
