The Memphis Grizzlies can’t get enough shooting. It has been their Achilles heel for years, this summer they signed Chandler Parsons to help turn that around.

Another step along that road is signing restricted free agent Troy Daniels to an offer sheet, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports. That offer sheet evolved into a sign-and-trade deal.

Free-agent guard Troy Daniels has agreed to a three-year, $10 million contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources told The Vertical.

The Charlotte Hornets and Grizzlies completed a sign-and-trade agreement that will allow Daniels to join Memphis, sources said. The deal created a trade exception for the Hornets.

Daniels is a three-point specialist who shot 48 percent from beyond the arc last season. His advantage is he can do that well off the catch or the bounce. He can come in off the bench behind Tony Allen at the two and bring a real change of pace. The downside is Daniels doesn’t do much will other than shoot — he’s not a great ball handler or defender.

Good pick up for the price by the Grizzlies.
