Toney Douglas frontrunner to sign with Memphis

Former New Orleans Pelicans guard Toney Douglas "has emerged as the frontrunner" to join the Memphis Grizzlies, according to team beat writer Michael Wallace.

What It Means:

With Mike Conley out indefinitely with a back injury, Douglas could play a significant role for the Grizzlies the rest of the season. Youngsters Andrew Harrison and Wade Baldwin IV will likely take a backseat to the seven-year veteran if he does indeed sign with Memphis.

Douglas appeared in 61 games with the Pelicans last season averaging 8.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers while posting a .543 true shooting percentage in 20.7 minutes per game.
