Josh Selby Assigned to the NBA Developmental League

According to the Grizzlies team site on NBA.com, rookie point guard Josh Selby has been assigned the the NBA Developmental League to play for the Reno Bighorns. This move certainly makes a ton of sense for the Grizz, as Selby has been getting little to no playing time, and with Jeremy Pargo playing reasonably well in the backup role and the newly-acquired Gilbert Arenas also somewhere in the mix, it makes sense for Selby to get some burn in the D-League instead of wasting his talents at the end of the bench.

Details:

MEMPHIS, March 26, 2012 – The Memphis Grizzlies assigned guard Josh Selby to the Reno Bighorns, the team’s NBA Development League affiliate, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced today.

Selby (6-2, 183) has averaged 2.5 points and 1.2 assists on .377 shooting in 8.8 minutes in 23 games during his rookie season with the Grizzlies. The 20-year-old was selected by Memphis in the second round (49th overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft.

He was previously assigned to the Bighorns earlier this season on February 13, where he saw action in four games with the Bighorns, including one start. In this stint, Selby averaged 21.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.25 steals in 31.0 minutes. He shot .483 from the field, .500 from three-point territory and .714 from the free throw line.

No harm done here. Let's just hope he can gain a little confidence while getting extra burn down in the D. We'll see him up again sooner than later.
