The Grizzlies have made another addition to their preseason roster, announcing today that they’ve signed free agent point guard Andre Barrett. The move increases the team’s roster count to 17 players.
Barrett, 31, has spent time with the Rockets, Magic, Suns, Raptors, Bulls, and Clippers, but hasn’t appeared in a regular season NBA game since the 2007/08 season. In 2012/13, he split time between the D-League’s Maine Red Claws and the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging 9.3 PPG and 7.7 APG in 33 overall contests.
The Grizzlies are now carrying 17 players, including 13 on guaranteed contracts. Barrett, Melvin Ely, Willie Reed, and Tony Gaffney will compete for the last two potential roster openings.
