Report: Leon Powe signs with Grizzlies

Posted By WEEI On March 3, 2011 @ 8:34 pm In General | 1 Comment

According to David Aldridge of NBA.com [1], former Celtics [2] forward Leon Powe [3] – who was bought out of his contract by the Cavaliers [4] last week, thus becoming a free agent — has signed with the Memphis Grizzlies [5]. While the Celtics had reportedly considered the possibility of a return engagement for Powe — who played in just 14 games for Cleveland this year, averaging 5.0 points and 2.7 boards in 13 minutes a night — their acquisition of Troy Murphy [6] took them out of the market for the 27-year-old. That, in turn, led Powe to Memphis.
