Killie 2yr/$4m, Tyrell Terry on a 2-way 

Post#1 » by VCfor3 » Sun Jan 2, 2022 2:28 am

Killian Tillie's solid play while the Memphis Grizzlies have navigated injuries and health and safety protocol absences has paid off. Memphis signed Tillie to a two-year, $4 million contract.

While on his second Two-Way contract with the Grizzlies, Tillie has averaged 3.4 points per game.

In order to open the roster spot for Tillie, Memphis waived guard Sam Merrill. The Grizzlies took a $1.5 million cap hit in dead money by waiving Merrill off his fully guaranteed contract. Merrill is expected to miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season after ankle surgery.

To fill their open Two-Way spot, Memphis signed guard Tyrell Terry. Terry had been with the Grizzlies on a 10-day hardship contract.

I like getting Tillie on a cheap contract as an end of the bench guy. Hate it for Merrill but he should be able to find a hardship exception pretty easily. Terry was someone we were really high on during the draft so makes sense we take a look at him given how young he is.

Terry is definitely a player I read on during his draft year. Skilled shooter, sufficient assist player, slasher. He needs more development time to improve his skills sets. I hope we will work out well for the Grizzlies and the G'-League Hustle team.
