NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Memphis Grizzlies, who are short a player with Allen Iverson taking personal leave, have signed free agent guard Jamaal Tinsley, the NBA team said on Saturday.

Tinsley, 31, who averaged a career-high 8.4 assists in 39 games with the Indiana Pacers in 2007-08, his last season in the NBA before he was released by the team in July.

"We are pleased to add a veteran playmaker with Jamaal's credentials to the team," Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement. "He will add experience and high-level passing ability."

Well at least if AI retires, we can still watch him play on through Brandon Jennings... that maybe even the reason why he wears #3.

I meant the current AI. I'd take Jennings over him right now.

Iverson games over 55pts, > 50% FG%: 0

Jennings games over 55pts, > 50% FG%: 1

Tinsley huh,

Another talented player that's in it for himself signs with Memphis(Steve Francis, Darius Miles, Zach Randolph, Allen Iverson, Jamal Tinsley).

I guess Marbury will be getting a call next. :facepalm:

I wonder how much all these experiments with toxic waste has cost the Grizz owner in the last yr, another masterful job by GM Chris Wallace. At this rate the Grizz owner is gonna be asking from a loan from some of his players soon.

On the real though this may turn out in Memphis' favor, Tinsley knows this is his last shot at getting paid and at getting some respect back.

Maybe they should bring back 'Toine and Darius Miles. Maybe see if Vin Baker and Keon Clarke will come out of retirement. Maybe place a call to the Lakers to see if they want to trade Gay and Mayo for Artest. Maybe give Starbury a call.

This franchise just doesn't get it.

Yeah, lose one cancer and get another one. C'mon Grizzlies, you didn't even need another guard.

I don't get why you would add ANOTHER cancer to such a young team with individually promosing players.

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace is stupid to replace Iverson with another version of (attitude) Iverson.

The Grizzlies would be a legit team if Zack, Iverson and Tinsley weren't such headaches.

I believe you speak the truth......now if AI will get his head of of his nuts and man up and play ball.........this of course now assumes his REAL personal problems have met a resolution and he wants to grace us with his presence this week.
Don't be raining on ZBo.....he's done all and more than we've asked of him.
I think Tinsley will try and prove he can ball still......so I reserve the right to form an opinion in a few days.

am i the only one that thinks this is actually a good pickup. i ean the guy may have some attitude problems but he can play. besides there not even colossal problems... not like iverson any way. and as for the zach randolph thing...the guy has been pretty much keeping hiscact together since coming to memphis. it can turn out to be a real steal for them. and besides memphis wasnt going anywhere this season anyway so why not experiment a little.
