Grizz Sign Deal with Darrell Arthur

Posted: Updated:
Memphis, TN -

The Memphis Grizzlies agreed to terms with forward Darrell Arthur on a three-year contract worth just over $9 million.

Memphis tendered qualifying offers to Arthur and fellow forward Marreese Speights, both restricted free agents, in late June. The Grizzlies came to terms late last week with Speights, agreeing to pay him nearly $9 million over two years.

The third year of Arthur's deal is a player option.

Arthur missed all of last season with a torn right Achilles tendon suffered in the days leading up to the December start of the lockout-shortened season. In 2010-11, Arthur averaged 9.1 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game. He played in all 13 games of the Grizzlies' 2010-11 playoff run, averaging 7.1 points and 2.2 rebound per game.
