View Full Version : Report: Grizzlies to work out Mike Bibby

12-12-2012, 04:43 PM
The Lakers aren't the only Western Conference team looking for help at the point guard position.

According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Memphis Grizzlies are working out veteran point guard Mike Bibby today in Phoenix. Bibby, the 34-year-old who lives in the Phoenix area, has been out of work since playing 39 games for the New York Knicks last season.

According to one of the people who requested anonymity because of the private nature of the situation, the Grizzlies are one of "four or five" teams that will be working him out as he attempts to sign on with a team for the second half of the season.The Lakers, however, are not one of them.

While Bibby is nowhere near the player he was during his memorable days in Sacramento from 2001 to 2008, he is hoping to play a pivotal reserve role on a playoff-bound team this season. If he signed with the Grizzlies, it would mark a return to the franchise that drafted him second overall out of the University of Arizona in 1998 and with which he played his first three seasons when it was in Vancouver.


That bench will be awkward considering Bibby's father Henry is an assistant coach for the Grizzlies and Mike Bibby has openly spoke on how much he hates his father for leaving their family as a kid.:eyebrow:

I was going to read this thread, but then I decided to go watch paint dry instead.

He looked decent against the Heat in the playoffs last year, I suppose.

Well he's not going to play much, I'm happy to see him with the team that drafted him.

Could still be in the league and made more money but he wanted out of that money to sign with the HEAT who dumped him.
