Former Trail Blazers and Kings forward Anthony Tolliver has agreed to join the Grizzlies on a 10-day contract. Following a trade from Portland to Sacramento, Tolliver reached a buyout agreement with the Kings. In an effort to bolster their injury-depleted roster, the Grizzlies will now turn to the 34-year-old NBA journeyman.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered the news on the signing.

Following the signing of Tolliver, the Grizzlies waived former Oregon Ducks big man Jordan Bell.
The Grizzlies are narrowly in front of the Blazers in the race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 30-31 record. Tolliver appeared in 33 games with the Blazers earlier this season. Memphis is currently dealing with the injury absences of Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke.
