Grizzlies, Pacers Interested In Gary Forbes

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.

Earlier today, we learned that the Pacers are interested in MarShon Brooks and it stands to reason that they’ll be looking into several options to help to try and fill the void.
