Grizzlies Re-Sign Chris Johnson

The Grizzlies have re-signed small forward Chris Johnson to another 10-day contract, tweets Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal. It's the final 10-day deal he can sign with the team, as the Grizzlies would have to commit for the rest of the season if they want to bring him back again.

Memphis inked him to his first 10-day contract on January 23rd, and he's averaged 5.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 18.4 minutes over five games. The Grizzlies were down to an 11-man roster after their three-for-one trade with the Cavs before they added him last month, and briefly dipped down to 12 when Johnson's first 10-day deal expired this weekend. The roster minimum is 13, though Memphis had a couple weeks to restock its roster following the trade. 

Johnson, a product of Dayton, is not to be confused with Chris Johnson of LSU, a big man on a 10-day contract with the Timberwolves.
