Default Grizz looking at Dixon

Quote:
While the Clock is ticking on the latest Allen Iverson offer by the Memphis Grizzlies, the team reportedly is not just sitting back, waiting on an answer..from the Answer.

Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace says the club held Free Agent Workouts at FedExForum today...

Included among the 4-guards on hand were Combo Juan Dixon, formerly of the Toronto Raptors, who was the MVP of the 2002 NCAA Tournament with National Champion Maryland.

And Mike Taylor, a quick point guard who played with the Clippers last season.

Wallace says the team is trying to get former Grizz point guard Brevin Knight in for a workout.Knight, who played at Charlotte last season, played for the Grizzlies in the first 3-seasons after the team moved here from Vancouver in 2001, backing up Jason Williams at the point.

Tyronne Lue and Luther Head are others the Grizz want to give a look-see.

He could be a good veteran addition to the Grizzlies.

Not a lot to get excited about there. Tyronne Lue?

I'm so glad the Raps were able to use their exception and do the deal for Jack, instead of filling out the team with leftovers on minimum contracts.

i've never understood why teams like Golden State, or (more recently) NY never picked up a guy like dixon.
his game is so one dimensional that he'd fit in perfectly. Unfortunately, the wrong teams grab him and they get upset when he plays no defense and gets out muscled.
he'll go to the Grizz and he'll end up getting a 1 year deal and will be a FA again next summer... its a vicious cycle for this guy. if GState ever picked him up, i bet he'd put up 12+ off the bench and be a fan fav. unfortunately, they never even look his way, and i dunno why.

You need to change that avatar. The 80's died on December 31, 1989 and David is busy getting drunk and eating cheese burgers.
