Grizzlies Sign Chucky Atkins

In NBA News, the Memphis Grizzlies finally get their man...er, point guard.

Free Agent Chucky Atkins signed with the Grizz Monday afternoon.

He joined the team in Miami, and will be on hand when Memphis plays the Heat Tuesday night.

Atkins, a 7-year Veteran, averaged almost 7-points and 2.5 assists before having his contract bought out by Washington last week.

He started all 82-games with the Lakers last season, and was one of only 5 players in the league to finish in the top 35 in both assists and 3-point percentage.

The Grizzlies expect him to give them much needed backcourt help after starting point guard Damon Stoudamire was lost for the season with a knee injury.
