Grizzlies Waive Harrison, Arms, Johnson

The Grizzlies have trimmed their roster by waiving guards Shaquille Harrison, Adonis Arms and David Johnson, the team announced (via Twitter).

Harrison signed with Memphis in late August, and there has been speculation that he might be given playing time during Ja Morant‘s 25-game suspension. The Grizzlies can’t move Morant to the suspended list until after five games, so it’s possible that Harrison may be re-signed early in the season.

Harrison has been with five teams during his six years in the NBA. He appeared in five games with Portland last season after joining the team on a 10-day contract in late March.

Arms and Johnson both signed with the Grizzlies on Wednesday and appear headed for the team’s G League affiliate, the Memphis Hustle. If they have Exhibit 10 contracts, they’ll be able to earn a bonus of up to $75K if they spend at least 60 days with the team.

Harrison played in four of Memphis’ preseason games, averaging 0.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 12.1 minutes per night. Neither Arms nor Johnson saw any game action during their brief time with the team.

Memphis’ roster is now set for the regular season with 15 players on standard contracts and three on two-way deals.
