Hudsanity Comes Home to Memphis

The Memphis Commercial Appeal is reporting that the Grizzlies have picked up Lester Hudson for the rest of the season. Hudson’s second 10-day contract with the Cavaliers ran out on Wednesday.

It seemed surprising that the Cavaliers didn’t sign Hudson to a longer deal, since he had his "Hudsanity" moment just two weeks ago – but I guess the Cavs are more interested in preserving the positions of their draft picks than keeping a scorer like Hudson around. Hudson is eligible for the playoffs since he wasn’t waived by the Cavs; they simply let his contract expire.

Hudson gives the Grizzlies another scoring option to bring off the bench throughout the playoffs – especially since, given the compressed playoff schedule, Gilbert Arenas or OJ Mayo may get banged up along the way. Losing either one of those guys for a playoff game would be bad, but now Hudson will be there to fill that gap if he’s needed.

Hudson was on the Grizzlies team for the end of the 2009–2010 season, but was waived during the summer of 2010. He played college ball at the University of Tennessee at Martin where he racked up the only quadruple-double in NCAA history. Hudson is actually from Memphis, where he played at Central High School. Always good to see a local guy in a Grizzlies uniform – I hope he can play his way on to next year’s roster.
