Darrell Arthur To Resign With Memphis Grizzlies

NBA fans haven't seen Darrell Arthur in over a season, but the Memphis Grizzlies haven't forgotten about him. They will reportedly sign the restricted free agent to a two-year deal. Memphis radio host Chris Vernon broke the news:

Arthur has played three years and missed last season with an Achilles tendon injury. The 6-foot-9 power forward from Kansas provided important depth to a frontcourt featuring Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol as the upstart Grizzlies upset the top-seeded Spurs in the playoffs two years ago, but his presence was missed as Memphis turned to players such as Hamed Haddadi in important minutes with mixed results in a first-round loss to the Clippers. The team will be getting good value on a very solid rebounder if the report is true.

This comes days after the Grizzlies also opted to resign fellow restricted free agent and power forward Marreese Speights, another example of the young talent available in Memphis.
