Grizzlies Re-Sign Jon Leuer

JULT 15TH: The Grizzlies' re-signing of Leuer is now official, tweets Tillery.

JULY 2ND: Right on the heels of their extension agreement with Tony Allen, the Grizzlies have agreed to re-sign Jon Leuer, according to Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal (Twitter link).  It'll be a three-year, $3MM deal, tweets Marc Stein of  The 6'10" forward is a client of Mark Bartelstein, according to the Hoops Rumors Agency Database.

Leuer came to the Grizzlies in a trade with the Cavs back in January that sent Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby, Marreese Speights, and a future first-round pick to Cleveland.  The 6'10" forward has moved around quite a bit over the course of his young career.  

After being drafted by the Bucks heading into the lockout year, he signed up to play in Germany, but came back in time for the start of the 2011/12 season.  The 2012 Samuel Dalembert draft night deal brought him to the Rockets, who waived him shortly thereafter, paving the way for him to hook up with Cleveland.

Leuer has averaged 3.7 PPG in ten minutes per contest over the last two years.
