2014 NBA Free Agency: Beno Udrih commits to sign back with the Memphis Grizzlies

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

[Insert the most positive reaction possible here]

There's no ink on the contract just yet, but it appears Nick Calathes days as a Memphis Grizzly are likely over as Memphis gets backup PG hero Beno Udrih to commit to staying in Memphis for what looks to be a 2-year deal that will likely be around $1-$2 million a year.

*UPDATE: There's a partial guarantee on the 2nd year of the deal coming in at just under $1 million.

What does this mean? For starters, the Grizzlies will finally have a plan at backup PG going into an offseason and then the following NBA regular season. Beno will have all summer to gel into Dave Joerger's system and has plenty of valuable NBA experience to bring to the table. (and shooting!)

But don't take my word for it, here's what you all are saying:
