Memphis Grizzlies in the mix for PG Mo Williams

Mo point guards, less problems. - USA TODAY Sports

Looky looky! After weeks of idle observation, the Grizzlies are making moves left and right in the free agent market.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Memphis Grizzlies are "firmly in the mix" for veteran PG Mo Williams.

This news comes shortly after the wave of happiness that was the Mike Miller signing, perpetuating the climb of optimism for the Grizzlies 2013-14 season.

This has me ecstatic. Mo Williams obviously isn't a dynamic player at this point in his career, but he's dang consistent (when healthy) and ... you saw it coming ... has a solid outside shot with a career 38% shooting behind the arc. What is really encouraging about this move is that the Grizzlies are trying to actually, possibly, theoretically, hopefully address the backup point guard spot that has haunted us for years. After literally pulling players off their couches in 2012 and 2013 (Arenas, Dooling), we may be looking forward to seeing what a veteran backup can do with an entire training camp/season to gel with the team.

What else does this say? Well,Tony Wroten is obviously not exactly what the FO wants in a backup point guard. Everyone knows he was a Chris Wallace guy from the previous regime, and I honestly wouldn't be totally surprised to see him on the trading block if Mo Williams indeed signs with the Grizzlies.

If the Grizzlies land Williams, they obviously think he has a few more of these games in him.
