While numerous teams have been active in free agency, the Memphis Grizzlies locked in another one of their guys on Saturday afternoon. Following De’Anthony Melton signing his four-year, 35-million dollar deal, the Grizzlies locked in John Konchar to a four-year, 9-million dollar deal.

Following the Melton signing, the Grizzlies only had around 6 million dollars left before they hit the tax limit. The Grizzlies locked in former two-way player John Konchar for four years on a deal that has him at 2.25 million a year. Konchar, entering his second season with the Grizzlies, was a nice bench piece for Memphis last season in his 19 appearances on the main roster.

Konchar, undrafted out of Purdue-Fort Wayne University, averaged 2.8 points per game, in 9.5 minutes of action per game, along with 2.5 rebounds. Konchar will continue to progress in Memphis under his new four-year deal.

Not even 24 hours into free agency, and Grizzlies General Manager Zach Kleiman has taken care two of his own guys. Now the Grizzlies sit right under four million in available cap room, with pretty much their 2020-21 roster in place with the De’Anthony Melton and Konchar signings — barring any unexpected player movement.
