Grizzlies sign Marquis Teague for remainder of the season

The Hustle star will finish out the year with the Grizzlies

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Utah Jazz Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

The Grizzlies have signed guard Marquis Teague for the rest of the season, per Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the Grizzlies. Teague’s first 10-day contract with the Grizzlies expired on Monday. In two games during the first 10 days, Teague averaged 4 points on 30% shooting, but also 5 assists and 2 rebounds.

Teague initially signed with the Grizzlies after completing a stellar season with the Memphis Hustle, the Grizzlies G-League affiliate. In 47 games with the Hustle, Teague averaged 17.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists. Teague was one of the Hustle’s captains and named MVP of the team in GBB’s End of Season roundtable for the Hustle.

Teague returns to the NBA after spending the last 3 seasons in the G-League. His last NBA action was in the 2013-2014 season where he split time with both the Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets. Teague doesn’t figure to be a major piece of the Grizzlies going forward, but kudos to the team for rewarding their star G-League player to allow him the chance to prove himself against NBA talent.
