From the press release:

Memphis, Tenn. – The Memphis Grizzlies have signed free agent guard Keyon Dooling, the team announced today.

Dooling (6-3, 196) joins Memphis with career averages of 7.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists on .415 shooting in 19.5 minutes in 721 games (86 starts) over 12 seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics.

You may remember that Dooling announced the signing on Twitter on Monday.

I, for one, am still not quite sure what the reasoning is behind this signing, since Jerryd Bayless and Tony Wroten are still both getting minutes at the backup 1 spot.

But.

I'm not the one calling the shots. That's apparently going to be Keyon Dooling, for a few minutes a night.
