Glen Rice Jr RumorsAll NBA Players
The man who was shot in the leg at T.I.’s Atlanta restaurant is former NBA player Glen Rice Jr. — son of Glen Rice. We broke the story … a fight broke out at Scales 925 on Sunday night … after a verbal argument inside the eatery spilled out into the parking lot. During the incident, shots were fired … and Rice was shot in the leg.
Cops say they have footage showing Rice running from the scene of the crime and ditching a gun by throwing it on a stairwell. Rice was shown on footage getting into a Porsche and leaving the scene. Police responded and pulled over the Porsche and found Rice Jr. bleeding from the leg — while in possession of 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash. He’s been charged with reckless conduct and possession of weed.

Rio Grande Valley Vipers General Manager Gianluca Pascucci today announced that the Vipers have acquired guard/forward Glen Rice, Jr. Additionally, the team waived Tristan Carey. Rice (6’6”, 215, Georgia Tech) played with the Washington Wizards, where he averaged 2.7 ppg over the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. He was drafted 35th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2013 NBA Draft, before being traded that night to the Wizards.
The Wizards’ intention means they plan to, unsurprisingly, employ Butler for the entire season. Butler signed a one-year, unguaranteed deal after claiming the 15th and final spot on the roster as a training camp invite. His entire $1.4 million salary — the minimum for players with 10-plus years of NBA experience — will become guaranteed on Jan. 10.
If a trade partner cannot be found, the Wizards will likely waive the second-year guard to vacate a roster spot and create salary-cap flexibility as postseason draws near and players become available via trade and late-season buyouts. If they are forced to waive Rice, the move will likely be made by Wednesday so he could clear waivers before Jan. 10, when all NBA contracts become guaranteed for the remainder of the season.
