Grizzlies sign Sampson Carter
If you didn't think the Grizzlies roster was big enough, it is now. Memphis announced it brought its roster to the legal maximum of 20 Tuesday with a new signing.
From the team's official website:
Teams have to get their rosters down to 15 by the start of the regular season at the end of October. The Grizzlies' locker room is already crowded. Jarnell Stokes wasn't even able to get into Memphis' first preseason contest.
The Memphis Grizzlies today announced the team has signed free agent forward Sampson Carter. Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.
Carter (6-8, 220) joins the Grizzlies after playing professionally last season in Slovakia, Portugal and the Dominican Republic. Undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft, the 25-year-old averaged 7.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in 21.8 minutes in 135 games (88 starts) over five seasons (2009-14) at the University of Massachusetts. The Baton Rouge, La. native attended Ridgeway High School in Memphis before beginning his collegiate career.
