David Richard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The Memphis Grizzlies have waived D.J. Kennedy and Jarrid Famous.
First, he was waived prior to the start of camp, to essentially clear the non-guaranteed contract he was under after the Grizzlies acquired him in the Jeremy Pargo trade. That made sense. Then, he was brought back and invited to attend camp on a second non-guaranteed contract, to which we all knew he was going to most likely get waived again, but... I don't think anyone had him pegged to get waived just shortly after the first preseason game. You know, one in which he played zero minutes.
Again, this is a business, I get it, and no one really expected Kennedy to make the team, but I hate to have to write up quick ones like this, especially when I've grown fond of Kennedy in his short time with the Grizzlies. I truly wish him the best and hope that he ends up someone, playing basketball for a living.
Also waived was big man Jarrid Famous, who did not see any time on the court Saturday in the Grizzlies game against Real Madrid.
