Monday afternoon per Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Memphis Grizzlies have waived Jordan Bell, in order to sign a veteran wing via the buy out market.

That veteran you might ask? The journeyman himself, Anthony Tolliver, who was just bought out by the Sacramento Kings a few days ago.

Tolliver, 34, is brought in to add to its depth with key players missing due to injuries. A ten-day contract could point to several signs that are good for Memphis. Tolliver is a good fit with the Grizzlies right now while Justice Winslow, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Brandon Clarke all rehab from their injuries.

Tolliver, who is averaging 6.2 PPG, 3.4 REB, and shooting 41% from the field in his 11 seasons in the NBA.

The Grizzlies waived Jordan Bell as a result of the signing of Tolliver on Monday afternoon. Bell, acquired at the trade deadline via trade with the Houston Rockets, wasn’t seeing consistent floor time, even with the injuries that Memphis was struggling with.
