Grizzlies To Release Xavier Munford?

The Grizzlies plan to waive point guard Xavier Munford, tweets international journalist David Pick. Memphis had a team option on Munford worth $874K for next season, according to Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal, who was unable to confirm Pick’s report with the Grizzlies.

The 6’3″ rookie out of Rhode Island appeared in 14 games with Memphis this season, averaging 5.7 points and 1.6 assists per night. Munford inked two 10-day contracts in March before signing for the rest of the season on April 7th. He was one of a record-setting 28 players to appear on the Grizzlies’ roster.

Memphis isn’t assured of keeping free agent point guard Mike Conley, but the franchise fortified itself at the position Thursday when it drafted Vanderbilt’s Wade Baldwin.

I thought he played well and deserved a look as a training camp/3rd PG. Hopefully he gets picked up

Instead of “waive” wouldn’t it be that they declined his team option?
