Memphis Grizzlies Rumors
Alas, Westbrook gets his new start with the team that sources say was his No. 1 option and the Rockets are now poised to make the sort of run that had begun to look so unlikely – especially if they can keep adding to the roster from here. Priority No. 1? Secure a deal for former Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala, who was traded by the Warriors to Memphis on June 30 to make room for D’Angelo Russell in the Kevin Durant sign-and-trade with Brooklyn. The Rockets have continued their push to land the 35-year-old via trade, with the Clippers also known to be among the most serious suitors. They are also hoping to add veteran big man Tyson Chandler.
Peter Edmiston: Ivan Rabb’s contract is unguaranteed until Monday. The Grizzlies would save 1.3 million or so by waiving him, and given the roster situation right now, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him waived. He hasn’t shown much this summer, especially for a guy going into his third year.
