Marreese Speights Tweets He's Returning To Memphis

Restricted free agent power forward Marreese Speights is resigning with the Memphis Grizzlies and Speights himself was the one to break the news. He took to Twitter Thursday night to let everyone know he would be returning to Memphis.

The terms of the deal are still unknown, but Memphis previously extended Speights a qualifying offer of $3.8 million. The fourth-year forward from Florida was acquired from Philadelphia prior to last season. He started 54 games during the regular season averaging 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

The 76ers used the No. 16 pick in the 2008 draft to select Speights. He played three seasons for Philadelphia and has career averages of 7.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. His return will bolster Memphis's front court which also includes Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
