Xavier Munford went from a D-League All-Star to a key contributor down the stretch for the injury-ravaged Grizzlies.

What’s next for the 24-year-old point guard?

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Though Munford was rough around the edges in Memphis, he proved himself a fringe NBA player. It probably doesn’t hurt that he had two of his better games against Doc Rivers’ Clippers. But is unlikely to stick in Los Angeles.

The Clippers already have 15 players, the regular-season roster limit, with guaranteed salaries. Hard-capped and with little wiggle room, they probably won’t waive a guaranteed player for Munford – though there’s at least a theoretical chance they could eat Raymond Felton‘s deal and keep Munford behind Chris Paul and Austin Rivers.

Much more likely, Munford tries to impress now in case the Clippers – or another team – has an opening later in the season.
