Marreese Speights Agreed to 2-Year, $9 Million Deal With Memphis Grizzlies

Restricted free agent big man Marreese Speights and the Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to a $9 million deal over the next two seasons. Per the Commercial Appeal: “Forward Marreese Speights has agreed to a two-year contract with the Grizzlies worth nearly $9 million, two sources with knowledge of the negotiations confirmed. Though they can be negotiated and agreed to now, free agent contracts can’t be signed until Wednesday. The second year of Speights’ new contract is a player option. Speights, acquired in January by the Griz from Philadelphia shortly after Zach Randolph’s injury, averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds last season.”

    Few rumours flying round:
    Deng for Tyreke Evans.
    Josh Smith for Gasol.
    Courtney Lee to 76ers.
    Kaman to Spurs.
    Randolph to Celtics.

    ^^^Nice^^^ I like Randolph a bit… he seems to have something untapped that a KG could maybe break thru and reach.
    Tyreke would live in the lane if he goes to chicago
    If courtney lee goes to the 76ers, Lou is leaving.point blank.
    Kaman deserves a winning franchise

    Phila shouldve kept speights… I see him as a better prospect than Brand especially because hes young and thats phillys direction but he can play.

    @basketball_IQ I think that philly were quite patient with speights but he was just inconsistent and didn’t improve as they anticipated. anyway I think moultrie has a big chance to be a start with the sixers as does Harkless.
