Reggio Emilia is looking for the last addition to close the roster for the coming season. The main target is DJ Kennedy, as confirmed by the sports director of the Italian Team. Justin Holiday is the first alternative and Aaron Harper the last name pursued. “He is not 100% ready to move overseas. He is not fully convinced to leave America for Europe and he wants to think deeply before making the final decision. We spoke with him on the phone but we really want to try to convince him to join us. We are ready to make him a proposal already discussed with his agent” said Frosini.

Ronald Tillery: Recently waived DJ Kennedy will sign a training camp deal with Grizzlies. New contract limits team’s liability. Kennedy came via Pargo trade
Ronald Tillery: Griz announce they’ve waived D.J. Kennedy, who was sent in Pargo deal w/ Cavs with a non-guaranteed deal
In trading Pargo, his $1 million guaranteed 2012/13 salary and a second round pick for Kennedy (whose minimum salary of $762,195 is fully unguaranteed), Memphis does a salary dump and nothing else. Even the $1 million TPE they open up in doing so (created as Kennedy’s salary is absorbable via the minimum salary exception) is of little use, being so small.
“Our approach remains consistent as we try to bring in young talent, create future opportunity with draft picks as potential assets and maintain flexibility,” Grant said in a press release. “Jeremy adds depth to our backcourt. He is a young, aggressive, athletic guard who we feel fits well with our style of play, both defensively and offensively.”
The Cavaliers acquired point guard Jeremy Pargo, a 2014 second-round draft choice and cash from the Memphis Grizzlies for forward D.J. Kennedy, Cavs general manager Chris Grant announced Wednesday night.
Two days after not being able to reach a deal with guard Lester Hudson, the Cavaliers signed guard/forward D.J. Kennedy from the Erie BayHawks of the NBA Development League for the final four games of the season. He will wear No. 12. In 44 regular season games (all starts) with the BayHawks, Kennedy averaged 15.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 37.4 minutes per game while shooting 44.7 percent.
