Since the free agency period began, the Memphis Grizzlies were linked to Euroleague sharpshooter Marko Guduric. Today, we received another update:
Marko Gudurić is currently traveling to Memphis where he will sign his two year deal, pending a physical, per a source.— Dave DuFour (@DaveDuFourNBA) July 29, 2019
The 24 year-old has four seasons of Euroleague experience, most recently with Fenerbahce of Istanbul, Turkey. This past season, he averaged 9.9 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 22.1 minutes per game in 36 contests. In addition, he shot 54.9 percent from the field on 5.7 attempts per game. More notably, he connected on a blistering 47.7 percent of his 3-point tries, while shooting three triples a game.
This is a nice low-risk signing for the Memphis Grizzlies, as they don’t have any knockdown shooters. The shooting guard depth is also uncertain at the moment, so there’s a chance for Guduric to emerge as a rotation player.
If he could become a prominent complementary player for this young Grizzlies team, that’d be another sneaky good move from Zach Kleiman and company.
