SEPTEMBER 4: The deal is now official, per a release from the team.
The 6’3″ guard helped lead Texas Tech to the National Championship game last season, though the team lost to Virginia. He’s the third member of that squad to ink an NBA contract this offseason with Jarrett Culver joining the Wolves and Tariq Owens finding himself on the Suns.
Mooney said he had been deciding between the Grizzlies and the Heat for his first deal in the NBA. He’ll join Memphis for training camp.
The Grizzlies currently have a full 20-man roster, so they’ll need to make a trade or a cut before officially signing Mooney.
