Grizzlies Sign Chris Johnson

9:55am: The Grizzlies have made Johnson's signing official, the team announced in a press release.

WEDNESDAY, 8:10am: Although he wanted a rest-of-season deal, Johnson will sign a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies, according to Tillery (via Twitter).

TUESDAY, 12:46pm: Needing to add a couple players to reach the roster minimum, the Grizzlies will sign Chris Johnson, reports Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal (via Twitter). This isn't the 27-year-old big man by the same name that's currently on a 10-day deal with the Timberwolves, but rather the 22-year-old small forward out of Dayton.

Johnson was cut from the Clippers' training camp roster in early October but was quickly picked up by the Magic before being released near Halloween.  Johnson also played for the Sixers in the summer league this past July, averaging 7.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in 22.3 minutes per game over four contests.
