Free agent Gary Forbes has interest from the Grizzlies and Pacers as he mulls an offer in China, a source tells Shams Charania of RealGM (on Twitter). A contract in China would allow him to join an NBA team midseason when the Chinese season is complete.
Forbes, 29, signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Nets last offseason before being cut in mid-October. Soon after, the 6’7″ swingman hooked on with the Nets’ D-League affiliate, the Springfield Armor, before being cut in January due to injury.
Forbes played in China during the 2012-13 season and has been away from the NBA since 2012. In his two years with the Nuggets and Raptors, Forbes averaged 5.8 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
