When the NBA free agent period began July 1, the Grizzlies raced toward well-known and highly productive guards — with a $5 million mid-level exception in tow — only to be met by stop signs at every turn.
However, general manager Chris Wallace remains confident that the Griz will satisfy their goals of adding a shooter and backup point guard.
“All the people we’re talking to (now) have a track record,” Wallace said. “Have they made all-star teams? No. But how many free agents out there have? We were involved with Ray (Allen). We offered him more money (than Miami). We were right there with Jason Terry. We’ve talked to a ton of people since this started.”
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.
