It's the Second Day of the Future for the Memphis Grizzlies...While Grizz Rookies and Free Agents have their first Practice Tuesday for the Upcoming NBA Vegas Summer League, the team is set to welcome in Marc Gasol..the Younger brother of former Grizzly Pau, as the second half of the trade to the Lakers last season.
A News Conference is set for Wednesday at FedExForum..
But, First..time to get a little Mayo on your plate.
He Mayo, May-Not bring the Grizzlies to the promised land.
But O.J. Mayo has already brought the most hope the Grizzlies have seen in years.
The 3rd overall pick in the NBA draft made a splash on his first
day of practice.
Last season's Top Pick, Point Guard Mike Conley, likes what he sees so far.
"I was impressed . He didn't come in here like he was the man or anything. He wanted to learn."
A prolific scorer in the making, he wasn't exactly hot in the morning session.
But that will change once he gets his feet under him.
"It's a lot to learn, but i feel i'm ready for it. The shots will come.. Just want to be on the same page with all my teammates."
Mayo and the Grizzlies other pick this year, Darrell Arthur, both agreed to contracts this afternoon....Mayo stands to make 25 million plus over the next 5 years if the team picks up options starting in year 3.
Two-a-day practices continue Wednesday before the Grizzlies leave for the Las Vegas Summer League Thursday.
