Grizzlies add 2 players to 10-day contracts

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Grizzlies are making moves to fill their depleted roster.

The team announced two signings today, both 10-day contracts.

Guard Ray McCallum and center Alex Stephenson have been added to the roster.

McCallum has played three seasons in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs. He started three games this year for the Spurs, but was mostly unused and was waived on February 29.

The 24-year-old will join a shorthanded backcourt that has Briante Weber, signed Friday, as the starting point guard after Achilles injuries have knocked out Mike Conley and Mario Chalmers, who was waived Thursday.

Stephenson was an All-Star for the Grizzlies D-League Iowa Energy and has averaged 15.9 points and 13.8 rebounds in 31 games. Stephenson leads the D-League in double-doubles this season with 26.

The 28-year-old has bounced around rosters in the NBA after playing in Greece, Slovenia and Turkey.

Stephenson will help the Grizzlies' frontcourt, which is without Marc Gasol, Brandan Wright and Chris Andersen.
