Report: Jeff Green to opt in with Grizzlies for next year

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

The Memphis Grizzlies face an offseason of question marks. With Marc Gasol's situation at the top of the list, they have a good number of free agency dilemmas to solve.

One of those, however, seems to have taken care of itself already. Forward Jeff Green has reportedly opted in for the final year of his contract, after to coming to Memphis via trade midseason. This, according to Yahoo Sports/FOX Sports 1 NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Green will make $9.2 million in 2015-16, which is probably more than he could get on the open market after a less-than-spectacular year. An inefficient volume scorer he gives up a lot on the other side of the ball, Green is hardly the answer to Memphis' problems when it comes to taking the step to the level of true championship contender.

Hopefully that move is still on the way.
