Grizzlies, Keve Aluma Agree To Deal

Undrafted rookie Keve Aluma has agreed to a free agent deal with the Grizzlies, a source tells Jonathan Givony of ESPN (Twitter link).

Aluma will be joining the Grizzlies on the heels of an impressive 2021/22 season in which he averaged 15.8 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 1.9 APG on .538/.333/.785 shooting in 36 games (30.8 MPG) for Virginia Tech.

Aluma, who played two seasons for the Hokies after transferring from Wofford, earned All-ACC Second Team honors in both 2021 and 2022.

Givony didn’t provide any specifics on what Aluma’s contract will look like, but an Exhibit 10 deal is the most likely outcome. On an Exhibit 10, the Grizzlies could convert Aluma to a two-way contract or give him a bonus of up to $50K if he becomes an affiliate player for the Memphis Hustle, their G League team.
