The Memphis Grizzlies signed forward JaMychal Green to a multi-year contract, Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Before first coming to Memphis, JaMychal was the top prospect in the NBA Development League, and he has impressed us both in games and in practice during his tenure with the Grizzlies,” Wallace said. “JaMychal is not only a gifted athlete with tremendous upside but he is a humble, very hard working individual who has quickly earned the respect of his new teammates.”

Green (6-9, 220) has averaged 23.0 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.55 blocks in 31.8 minutes in 20 games (all starts) with Austin this season, shooting .577 from the field, .364 from three-point range and .843 from the free throw line.

After waiving Daye, the Spurs will be obligated to pay what is left of his $1.063 million contract.
Here’s 10 potential call-ups to watch at the D-League Showcase. 1. Quincy Miller, Reno Bighorns, F, 6-10, 219 pounds: “He’s still young and might be the best prospect with his length, ability to play small forward and power forward, make 3-pointers and handle the ball, too.” 2. JaMychal Green, Austin Spurs, F, 6-9, 220 pounds: “He is the MVP of the D-League so far. He can rebound and he can spread the floor. He’s a jump shooter who can knock down the 12- 15-footer and is a consistent rebounder.” 3. Seth Curry, Erie Bay Hawks, G, 6-1, 180 pounds: “He is the D-League’s best shooter. He is a combo guard who plays primarily off the ball. He lacks quickness, but makes up with it with his savvy style.”
