HoopsHype Jerryd Bayless rumors


January 11, 2013 Updates

I broke down the Rudy Gay situation on Wednesday, but there's another potential team to add to the mix: the aforementioned Clippers. While it remains unclear how determined the Memphis Grizzlies and their new management group are to move their star small forward before the Feb. 21 deadline, a package involving Clippers backup point guard Eric Bledsoe and veteran small forward Caron Butler, picks and other players to make the money work could be just what the Grizzlies are looking for. It's clear they are on the lookout for an upgrade over reserve point guard Jerryd Bayless, and Butler would fill Gay's small forward spot – albeit not nearly as well. The Clippers, I'm told, would consider Gay but are also justifiably wary of doing anything to affect the chemistry that has played such a big part in their season. USA Today Sports

Snubbed by Allen and Terry, and unable to get an audience with several other established players, the Grizzlies' road in free agency has narrowed with guards Willie Green, Jodie Meeks and Jordan Farmar now in their sights, according to sources. The Griz are said to also have interest in guards Sonny Weems and Jerryd Bayless. Russian point guard Alexey Shved was off the Grizzlies' radar as of Monday with a source close to the situation insisting that a deal wouldn't get done. Memphis Commercial Appeal

Bayless doesn’t seem to agree, but maintains he’ll do whatever it takes in order to stick around in Toronto long-term. He said he’ll spend much of his summer in town and though he’s “not 100% comfortable” playing off of the ball, “whatever they want me to do, I’m going to do. “I’m still searching, whatever they want me to do here I’m willing to do, but I think I’m still searching.” The Phoenix native said his agent has talked with Colangelo and “I kind of have an idea” (of what the future holds).
