Grizzlies sign free agent ex-Cavs guard Hudson

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed free agent guard Lester

Hudson.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Hudson averaged 12.7 points, 3.5

rebounds and 2.7 assists in 13 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers

this season. He scored a career-high 26 points on April 8 at New

Jersey.

Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins says ”if he can come in and help

us for one game or two games in the playoffs it’s always

good.”

This is Hudson’s second stint with the Grizzlies, having

appeared in nine games as a rookie in 2009-10. Hudson was drafted

in the second round by the Boston Celtics in 2009.

Hudson is inactive for Friday night’s game at the Charlotte

Bobcats.
