So, the Memphis Grizzlies just made a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Eek! Nope, they didn't get Kyrie Irving, buuuut, they did manage to get an asset in return for Jeremy Pargo -- who they were simply going to cut, if they couldn't find a team who would take him.

In return for Pargo, a 2014 2nd-round draft pick and cash, the Grizzlies got 6-6 swingman D.J. Kennedy, who I admittedly know little about.

According to Conrad Kaczmarek, of SB Nation's Cavs blog Fear the Sword:

I didn't think D.J. Kennedy was all that impressive in his brief stint with the Cavs last year and in Las Vegas.

Soooo... Welcome to Memphis, D.J. Kennedy!

A traveling highlight on YouTube! Awesome.

I guess it's now time to ask around and see what else we can find out about Mr. Kennedy. Until then, you should re-watch that traveling highlight. It's pretty funny.
