Report: Grizzlies to Meet With and Possibly Sign Ray McCallum

The answer to the question "Who is going to play point guard now?" may be answered by a former Spur

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

According to Shams Charania for Yahoo's The Vertical, the Memphis Grizzlies will likely sign Ray McCallum.

Ray was a McDonald's and a Parade Magazine All-American selection out of Detroit Country Day School.  He spent three years at the University of Detroit Mercy, where he would win the Horizon League's Player of the Year as a junior in 2012.

McCallum has been in the NBA for three seasons after being drafted it by the Sacramento Kings with the 36th overall pick in the 2013 draft.  He was traded last summer to the San Antonio Spurs for a second round draft pick.  Even though Ray has been platooned back and forth between the NBA and the D-League, he has averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 assists per game in 144 games

With Mike Conley is still nursing a foot injury that could keep him out of the lineup for the next few games and Mario Chalmers has been waived after his season ending Achilles rupture, the Grizzlies are now bereft of point guards.  It will be interesting to see if this report does come to pass and if McCallum can be made available before tomorrow's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
