Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley insists he’s not looking to trade Henry, but some teams are inquiring anyway. The thought is, if Memphis isn’t going to sign its rookie, why not trade him? From the Memphis Commercial Appeal: “The Grizzlies have fielded several trade offers from teams looking to acquire the rights to unsigned rookie Xavier Henry — interest mostly derived from a contract stalemate between the team and the NBA’s 12th overall draft pick. But Griz owner Michael Heisley insisted Wednesday that the team is only interested in signing Henry to a deal that will have him play in FedExForum this season.”
