Grizzlies re-signing Tyus Jones (two years, $30M), losing Kyle Anderson (two years, $18M) to Timberwolves nba.nbcsports.com/2022/06/30/gri…10:50 PM

Tyus Jones led the #NBA with an assist to turnover ratio of 5.7 in the half court last season. As well as Jones executed Memphis’s set offense, he tallied 71 assists and only 2 turnovers in transition. – 7:54 PM

Tyus Jones is now one of the three highest paid backup point/combo guards in the NBA. Well deserved deal after leading Memphis to a 19-4 record as a starter last season.

Tyus Jones coming back on a two-year deal worth $30 million makes sense for him and for the Grizzlies. He’s beloved by pretty much everyone and is an A++ backup. The deal allows for flexibility once Bane’s likely max deal kicks in, as well – could be a trade chip if needed, too. – 6:21 PM

Zach Kleiman said paying to retain players is not going to be a problem in Memphis. He just proved it by paying Tyus Jones $15 million per year. – 6:13 PM

The Tyus Jones suitors appear thin, perhaps his return is more likely than it was a few weeks ago. But it only takes one team to jump in that could spoil a return/ dailymemphian.com/subscriber/sec…9:22 AM

COLUMN: Ja Morant, Tyus Jones and the value of a great backup point guard. It’s a dilemma and a decision that will dictate how the Memphis Grizzlies proceed when NBA free agency officially begins today.

More on this storyline

Tyus Jones — Sources say the Cavs continue to have interest in Jones, who served as both Ja Morant’s backup and fill-in starter. The belief is Jones wants a starting gig — and pay day. The Cavs can’t offer either one, making Jones an unrealistic target — unless there isn’t a destination with both. -via Cleveland Plain Dealer / June 30, 2022
Minnesota is expected to have interest in Tyus Jones, but Washington has been the one rival team most often connected with the Grizzlies’ point guard. Jones is said to be seeking a multi-year deal above the non-taxpayer mid-level exception of $10.1 million for the ’22-23 season. -via Bleacher Report / June 29, 2022
Damichael Cole: David Roddy said he got a text message from Tyus Jones before the NBA Draft. He called Jones one of his mentors growing up in Minnesota. He played AAU basketball with Tyus’ younger brother, Tre Jones. -via Twitter @DamichaelC / June 24, 2022
