Mike Bibby Reportedly Working Out for the Memphis Grizzlies

It’s no secret that Mike Bibby is looking for a way back into the NBA. The veteran guard is auditioning for a gig with the Memphis Grizzlies, who could use him to bolster their bench. Per USA Today: “According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Memphis Grizzlies are working out veteran point guard Mike Bibby today in Phoenix. Bibby, the 34-year-old who lives in the Phoenix area, has been out of work since playing 39 games for the New York Knicks last season. According to one of the people who requested anonymity because of the private nature of the situation, the Grizzlies are one of ‘four or five’ teams that will be working him out as he attempts to sign on with a team for the second half of the season.The Lakers, however, are not one of them. The Grizzlies (14-4) are more than happy with the point guard play of starter Mike Conley, but the interest in Bibby could be a sign that backup point guard Jerryd Bayless isn’t inspiring the same sort of approval rating. The 24-year-old is averaging 6.4 points, three assists and 17.3 minutes per game for the Grizzlies.”

    That’d be sick if they wore retro Vancouver Grizzlies jerseys. Reeves, Shareef, Bibby original dun dadas.

    I’m getting disappointed in Josh Selby. He is a scorer who I thought would get some type of minutes with OJ gone.

    I don’t know, give him some 10 day contracts first please, if it doesn’t work out ship his ass out. His D is too bad and if he can’t knock em down like with the Heat there is no point in signing him.

    wait, bayless is helping them very well, he can create, he is really quick plus he can hit a three, hell he can even draw a foul with his speed and strength. then why get an oldie bibby?

  • Big D

    Tony Wroten?

    i guess not

    They have Bayless, Wroten and Selby to share the spot, plus Q can occasionally take up some PG responsibilities. Any signing of an oldie Bibby is beyond me.
