The Memphis Grizzlies announced this afternoon that they waived forward Vince Hunter and signed guard/forward Myke Henry.
Henry, who has played the last two seasons with the Oklahoma City Blue, has been signed to a two-way contract. The 6-6 man out of DePaul has appeared in 26 G-League games this season averaging nearly 16 points, five and a half rebounds, and two steals on 53 percent shooting and 36.5 percent from long range.
An NBA franchise is only allowed to have two two-way players at any one time, and considering Kobi Simmons has played better than expected for the parent organization, it was Hunter who was waived for Henry to join the squad.
Hunter played in four NBA games averaging only 1.5 points in less than two minutes per game. The former UTEP player featured in 13 games with the Memphis Hustle, starting in nine of those appearances. He averaged 16.2 points and almost nine rebounds per contest in just over 28 minutes per game.
The Hustle play today at 3 CT in the G-League showcase against the Maine Red Claws. The Grizzlies’ next game will be the annual MLK Day game on Monday against the Los Angeles Lakers at FedExForum.
