05:42 PM ET 01.22 | After moving several key bench pieces (Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby) to Cleveland in order to get under the luxury tax, Memphis is wasting no time filling the open spots on their roster. The Grizzlies are eyeing Bill Walker, a former New York Knicks guard who averaged 6 points a game last season, Delonte West, a former Mavericks, Celtics and Cavs guard who averaged 10 points and 3 assists last year, and Sasha Vujacic, a former Lakers guard who is currently playing in Turkey. All three are capable three-point shooters, which has been a huge need for Memphis all season.

I read they are also looking at Eddie House... rofl.


Delonte is the only one who is young enough and who can play, distribute, defend and shoot the 3.


" If Grizzlies don't sign Walker/West - are considering Micah Downs, Eddie House, or Joe Ingles (currently in Barcelona) "

I thought that they were worried about the salary cap?
