MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Grizzlies announced they will be bringing back second-year man Jarell Martin for another season.

Martin is now signed through 2017-18 after the Grizzlies picked up his third-year option.

Martin appeared in just 27 games as a rookie out of LSU and missed the Grizzlies’ season opener on Wednesday.

He averaged 5.7 points and 3.2 rebounds for the Grizz in 2015-16 after being selected in the first round of the draft.

The 22-year-old forward also spent time in the D-League last season, notching 10 games for the Iowa Energy in an injury-plagued rookie campaign.
