MEMPHIS (FOX13) -- ESPN reports that the Grizzlies have traded combo guard Jerryd Bayless on Sunday in hopes of adding more outside offense, acquiring shooting guard Courtney Lee from the Boston Celtics.

Bayless has averaged 8 points and 2 assists per game in his second season in Memphis, filling in at point guard and shooting guard as injuries have sidelined both Mike Conley and Tony Allen. He is in the final season of a two-year deal, and is expected to command a raise and multi-year deal in free agency this summer.

Lee is a 28-year-old shooting guard who is averaging over 7 points per game despite playing barely 16 minutes a night, and is shooting 49.2% from the floor and 44.2% from three-point range. His contract runs for two more years. He will make $5.45 million in 2014-15 and $5.6 million in 2015-16.
