Grizzlies Sign Jordan Farmar To 10-Day Deal

MONDAY, 12:42pm: The 10-day signing is official, the team announced.

SUNDAY, 12:02pm: The Grizzlies will sign Jordan Farmar, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports (Twitter link). No contract details have been provided yet, but it will likely be a 10-day deal, as Tillery reported earlier this week.

The Grizzlies currently have 17 players on their roster. The league granted them three additional roster spots via the hardship provision, so they ostensibly have an opening after not bringing back Briante Weber at the conclusion of his 10-day deal Friday night. The 10-day pacts for Ray McCallum and Alex Stepheson will expire Monday. McCallum and Stepheson are on their first 10-day deals, respectively, so the team has the option of bringing one or both of them back on a second 10-day contract or exploring other possibilities with the two roster spots.

Memphis currently has seven players who are dealing with some sort of ailment. Farmar will be the 26th player who will play for the team this season. He last played in the NBA during the 2014/15 season, when he was a backup to Chris Paul on the Clippers. He had expressed a willingness to join an NBA team via a 10-day contract earlier this year.
