MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The scramble for NBA free agents officially starts this week and the Memphis Grizzlies make a move to keep one of their own.
As expected, the Grizzlies made a qualifying offer to point guard Delon Wright, reportedly at $3.65 million as a restricted free agent.
Wright was part of the 3 player haul Memphis got from Toronto in the Marc Gasol trade back in February. Wright averaged 12.2 points, 5.3 assists and more than a steal and a half per game.
He also produced the franchise’s first ever back-to-back triple doubles and had three total for the season.
The qualifying offer means the Grizzlies have the right to match any offer Wright gets on the free agent market.
