The Grizzlies agreed to terms with Ben McLemore, but before that, they made a couple under-the-radar signings – Wayne Selden Jr. and Kobi Simmons.

Grizzlies releases:

Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced that the team has signed guard/forward Wayne Selden Jr. to a multi-year contract.

Among the few types of signings allowed during the moratorium – minimum contracts (which I bet Selden got) and two-way contracts (which I bet Simmons got).

Selden started two playoff games for Memphis, which was hit hard by injury. Still, that the undrafted free agent was next up showed the Grizzlies faith in him. Selden is a versatile, more than good yet, defender, and he’ll need to develop his 3-point shot.

Simmons went undrafted this year. The 6-foot-5 point guard has a nice vertical and quick first step – but very little polish. He’s a good candidate to develop in the D-League.
