Grizzlies Sign Sam Young

One more Grizzlies item: Memphis’ deal with second-round pick Sam Young is a three-year contract worth $2,658,000. The third season, at $947,800, is a team option. Taken No. 36 overall in June’s draft, Young averaged 13.6 points (a team high) and 4.2 rebounds on 51.9 percent shooting in summer league play, helping the Grizz go 5-0.

Good decision by the Grizzlies to tie up Young on a cheap contract for three years.

I think that’s the third second round pick — Jodie Meeks and DeJuan Blair — who have been given three year contracts this summer. I expect a few more to receive multi-year deals too.

Also in the link is a story claiming the Grizzlies passed up on Carlos Boozer in order to sign Zach Randolph … a terrible choice if that is indeed an accurate story.
