The Memphis Grizzlies have signed shooting guard Wayne Selden to their roster. Selden recently appeared in three games for the New Orleans Pelicans, averaging 5.3 points and 1.7 rebounds while shooting 62.5% from the floor and 57% from three-point range (small sample size alert). Even in limited minutes, Selden flashed a shot-making ability that was ever-present during his career at Kansas.
In order to make room for Selden, the Grizzlies waived veteran point guard Toney Douglas. Douglas had appeared in 24 games for Memphis, but he had been unable to find his shot during his tenure (37% from the floor, 17% from three). It was rumored that the Grizzlies also considered signed forward Omri Casspi, who was involved in the DeMarcus Cousins trade, but he is currently coming off of a thumb injury.
