NBA News, the Memphis Grizzlies sign Top Draft Pick Point Guard Kyle Lowry today...
Terms not announced, but Lowry's draft position as 24th overall should get him more than $2.4 Million Dollars over 3-years.
The Grizzlies also announced their Summer League team today, and a pair of former Tigers didn't make it.
Well travelled guard Billy Richmond, who last played at the U of M in 2003, and recently graduated forward Waki Williams are cut from the team after being invited to participate as Free Agents.
Theirs were long shots at best...
Former South Carolina Star Carlos Powell is on the Roster...
