Grizzlies Sign JaMychal Green To Multiyear Deal

MONDAY, 5:25pm: The deal is official, the team announced via press release. It includes partially guaranteed salary beyond this season, as we passed along earlier from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

“Before first coming to Memphis, JaMychal was the top prospect in the NBA Development League, and he has impressed us both in games and in practice during his tenure with the Grizzlies,” GM Chris Wallace said in the team’s statement.  “JaMychal is not only a gifted athlete with tremendous upside but he is a humble, very hard working individual who has quickly earned the respect of his new teammates.”

SUNDAY, 1:05pm: The Grizzlies and JaMychal Green have reached agreement on a three-year deal, according to Shams Charania of RealGM.  Green completed his second 10-day contract with the Grizzlies on Saturday night.

One has to imagine that the final two seasons are not fully guaranteed, but details of the pact are not yet known.  The deal probably called for Memphis to use a portion of its mid-level exception since that’s the only way that the deal could span three years.

Green, 24, averaged 23 PPG and 10.7 RPG in 20 games for the Austin Spurs this season.  He didn’t see nearly as much burn in his four games with the Grizzlies, however, notching a total of eight points and five boards in 15 minutes of action. Green first joined the Grizzlies on February 2nd as a free agent after a 10-day stint with San Antonio.

In total, Green has inked three 10-day deals this season between the two with the Grizzlies and his previous stint with the Spurs.
