Titletown. The Grizzlies are reportedly in talks to sign veteran point guard Keyon Dooling for the remainder of the season.

Dooling, who is coming off a mental breakdown, hasn't played since last season, when he appeared in 46 games for the Boston Celtics, shooting 40% from the field and 30% from 3. He's never shot better than 42% from 3-point range in his life, and is a career 34% shooter from beyond the arc.

At 6'3, he would presumably be brought in to be the backup point guard, giving Jerryd Bayless more time to thrive at the 2, and Tony Wroten more time to rot on the bench.

What are your thoughts, Grizz fans? Should we give him a look, or just keep looking the other way like the rest of the NBA?
