The Grizzlies have signed Ryan Hollins to a second 10-day contract, the team announced via press release. His first 10-day deal expired at the end of Saturday. The latest arrangement covers all five of the games remaining on the Memphis schedule prior to the All-Star break and the February 18th trade deadline. The Grizzlies will play the Pelicans, Knicks, Mavericks, Trail Blazers and Nets during the next 10 days.
Hollins, a 10th-year veteran, begins his fifth NBA contract this season and his fourth with the Grizzlies. He was a preseason signee but lost a battle for an opening night roster spot despite a strong performance in exhibitions. Memphis re-signed him in late December after he spent about a month with the Wizards, but the Grizzlies once more waived him early last month, only to bring him back two weeks later on the first of his 10-day contracts. He’s averaged 3.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 10.6 minutes per game across nine appearances for the Grizzlies this season.
Memphis has 14 other players on contracts that carry through at least the rest of the season. That the sort of deal the Grizzlies would have to give Hollins if they sign him again once his latest 10-day pact runs to term.
