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.”
