The Grizzlies are considering several players, including NBA veteran Tyrus Thomas, for a 10-day contract, although nothing is imminent. Thomas played seven seasons in the league with the Chicago Bulls and Charlotte Bobcats. He’s now playing for the Grizzlies’ NBA Development League affiliate, Iowa Energy, after sitting out the past two years following surgery to remove a cyst from his spinal cord.

Thomas returned to the court at the D-League Showcase on Friday in hopes of making his way back to the NBA. He is making $9.3 million this season from the final year of his amnestied contract with Charlotte. “The last two years I’ve just been miserable,” Thomas told Yahoo Sports on Friday morning. “I hate when people say, ‘You’re getting paid, so it’s cool.’ No, it’s not [expletive] cool. I’m [expletive] miserable sitting at home. “I’m not broke. I’m not desperate for money. When playing basketball is what you love to do and you physically can’t do it and you still have that urge to do it, it’s tough.”
