Ryan Hollins continues to the booty call of the Memphis Grizzlies. Elliot Williams was not given another 10-day contract following the conclusion of his first, and now Dave Joerger has the big frame of Ryan Hollins back in his arsenal.
The Memphis Grizzlies plan to re-sign center Ryan Hollins, letting guard Elliot Williams free after his 10-day, league sources tell Yahoo.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 18, 2016
What's somewhat disappointing about this is that we now (again) have another old guy on the roster. What's somewhat encouraging about this is that Memphis feels as though they do not need ball-handling guard (Mike Conley) insurance for another 10 days. Conley has missed the past 6 games with an achilles injury, and there was even a heart-stopping moment that came with this tweet:
Conley & Dr. Fred Azar just walked by my wife & me at Campbell Clinic. https://t.co/LI1O2RiK4u— Andy Wise (@AndyWise5) January 15, 2016
Dr. Azar being a surgeon and Campbell Clinic being an orthopaedic facility. So perhaps there was good news that came from that meeting and we'll be seeing Mike Conley back with the Grizzlies today or sometime this week.
I take Hollins signing as positive indicator of Mike Conley's imminent return.— Chris Herrington (@HerringtonNBA) January 18, 2016
