For a couple days you’ve been reading about a potential Jerryd Bayless swap for Courtney Lee, with the Thunder jumping in to offload Ryan Gomes. Now it’s official, it has been announced by the teams. Here is who gets what: Memphis Grizzlies: Lee plus a 2016 second round pick from Boston. Boston Celtics: Bayless and…

We told you Sunday that it looked like the Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies were close to swapping Jerryd Bayless and Courtney Lee. Why do it? Because the Celtics would save money in future years and while they get another ball handling guard (which they could use while Rajon Rondo remains out) they really don’t…

Memphis extended the contract of Quincy Pondexter this summer thinking they had secured a solid outside shooter they desperately needed at a fair price. Now they may have lost him for the season. An MRI Monday revealed a tarsal navicular stress fracture in his right foot, the team announced. That’s a small bone near the…

Monday night, Memphis Grizzlies reserve swingman Quincy Pondexter broke his nose. He left the game not to return. He was out Wednesday night for the Grizzlies ugly loss to the Raptors. But he hopes to return this weekend, reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Pondexter is a homegrown shooter, the kind of player the Grizzlies really…

We told you it was coming, we just didn’t know the price. Now we do and it is a great deal for the Grizzlies. Memphis has in house a guy starting to find his role as a floor-spacing shooter in Quincy Pondexter, and they were able to lock him up for four years at a…

Quincy Pondexter, who is becoming a more and more important floor-spacing shooter in the Memphis Grizzlies’ scheme, is about to be rewarded with a new contract. The Grizzlies and Pondexter have come to terms on a four-year contract extension and that will be signed before the deadline at midnight Oct. 31, reports Ronald Tillery of…

The first quarter of the Rockets’ preseason finale against the Grizzlies on Friday was far more eventful than the team would have liked. Early on, James Harden left the game with a knee contusion after being fouled on a three-point attempt by Quincy Pondexter. He did not return, although the injury was not believed to…

The Grizzlies didn’t overly rely on any single player last season. Marc Gasol played 35.0 minutes per game (32nd in the NBA), Mike Conley 34.5 (40th) and Zach Randolph 34.3 (45th). But collectively, Memphis was extremely reliant on its starters Just three other teams – the Warriors, 76ers and Trail Blazers, who had four –…

Jamaal Franklin was a great second round pick by the Grizzlies, maybe the best athlete in the draft and a first round talent they got at No. 41. The Grizzlies have locked him up with a three-year deal, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. The deal is for basically the minimum (we don’t know…

The four-year, $28 million contract Tayshaun Prince signed with the Pistons in 2011 didn’t necessarily make him overpaid, but it was definitely too long. Prince will make $7,235,955 and $7,707,865 the next two seasons, seasons that will end with him 34 and 35 years old. He played fairly well for an improved Grizzlies team, but…

Quincy Pondexter has game. I’m not just saying that because Lionel Hollins turned to him to give the Grizzlies some outside shooting against the Spurs (not that it mattered) but because I have seen what he has done through twitter. He got himself a date with Miss Tennessee Chandler Lawson. Check it out (via Sports Illustrated).…

That was impressive, San Antonio. A sweep was just not something anyone saw coming (even those of us who picked the Spurs in the series). Tony Parker was again playing like the guy everyone wanted to put in the MVP conversation mid-season. All series long he would turn the corner off the pick and do…

Unfortunately Memphis, we know how this movie is going to end. No team in NBA history has ever come back from 3-0 down in a best-of-seven series and the Grizzlies just do not have the firepower to change that trend. But that doesn’t mean the season has to end Monday night. Memphis has taken the…

There are certain things Tony Allen does. Play his pregame music at deafening volume, for one. Watch a lot of film to gain a defensive edge, for another. Allen is even trying to watch some film during games against the Spurs to gain an edge. That from a great note by Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com.…

There have been seven quarters — 84 minutes — of the Western Conference Finals where the Spurs have looked much the better team. But the last 17 minutes — the fourth quarter and overtime, Memphis erased a 16-point deficit, pushed the game into overtime and made this start to look like the close series we…

That was more like what we expected out of this series — close, intense, physical. Well, it was close for the final 17 minutes (just ignore the first 36), but in the end the Spurs got the win and are up 2-0 in the series. Here are three takeaways from this game. • Yes, Tony…

Zach Randolph recovered the opening tipoff in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, and he didn’t touch the ball again until the possession following the Grizzlies’ first timeout. Moments after cameras caught Randolph and Tim Duncan sharing a laugh coming out of that timeout, Randolph ran a seemingly designed pick-and-pop with Mike Conley, caught…

The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…
