The Memphis Grizzlies today announced the team’s 2013 NBA Summer League roster, headlined by second-year guard Tony Wroten and 2013 NBA second round draft picks Jamaal Franklin (No. 41 overall) and Janis Timma (No. 60 overall). Three forwards from the 2012-13 Grizzlies roster – Jon Leuer, Donté Greene and Willie Reed – also will join the summer league squad.

“We’re excited to see what he can do,” Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said. “We’re a team that needs more outside shooting … We’re eager to see what he can do.” Leuer is hoping to make his Grizzlies’ debut Friday night when the team hosts Brooklyn at 7 p.m. at FedExForum. “It’s a great mood around here, a great atmosphere to be around,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to just getting out there and doing whatever I can to help this team.”
The Memphis Grizzlies acquired forward Jon Leuer (LOO-er) and a trade exception from the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for forward/center Marreese Speights, guards Wayne Ellington and Josh Selby and a protected future first round draft pick, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced. Currently in his second professional season, Leuer (6-10, 228) recorded 19.5 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists on .512 shooting (.467 3FG) in 36.5 minutes in eight games (seven starts) for Cleveland’s exclusively-owned NBA Development League team, the Canton Charge. The 23-year-old also has made nine appearances for the Cavaliers this season, averaging 2.4 points in 10.1 minutes.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired forward/center Marreese Speights, guard Wayne Ellington, guard Josh Selby and a future first round draft pick from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for forward Jon Leuer, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. The Cavaliers also waived guard Jeremy Pargo. “Marreese will strengthen our front court, while Wayne and Josh will add depth to our back court. At the same time, we are adding a valuable asset with another future first round pick, while also maintaining our future flexibility,” said Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant. “We wish Jon and Jeremy the best as they move on with their careers and thank them for their time with us here in Cleveland.”

However, it is important to the Grizzlies because it saves them roughly $6.2 million in salary, getting them below the $70.3 million luxury tax threshold and helping them avoid tax payments after the season. The Grizzlies, recently purchased by Robert Pera, who has restructured the front office, had been shopping forward Rudy Gay in an effort to trim salary. This might be a sign that Memphis is willing to keep Gay and see how the season plays out.
In a much- desired need to get under the NBA’s luxury tax, the Memphis Grizzlies traded forward-center Marreese Speights, guards Josh Selby and Wayne Ellington and a future draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for guard Jon Leuer, a person familiar with the deal told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday.
