The Grizzlies summer of intrigue continues.
Among the latest in a month-long flurry of moves that have drastically reshaped the roster, the Grizzlies have moved Delon Wright to the Dallas Mavericks, receiving a couple of second round picks in exchange. From the AP:
Wright and the Mavericks have agreed on a $29 million, three-year contract, agent Greg Lawrence said Sunday. The Grizzlies will get two second-round picks in the trade, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced.
Wright spent parts of his first two seasons shuffling between the Raptors and their G-League affiliate. In 26 games with the Grizzlies last season, he averaged 12.2 points, nearly five points above his career average. Wright also doubled his career output in rebounds and assists in his short stint with Memphis.
Not long after that, news broke that the Grizzlies had made an offer to Minnesota Timberwolves restricted free agent Tyus Jones:

And that doesn’t even count the fact that the Mike Conley trade was finally completed, that newcomers Brandon Clarke, Grayson Allen and Jon Konchar all suited up in Summer League or that Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. were chowing down on chili fries and chicken strips at the Summer League.
There’s a lot to unpack. Stay tuned!
