The Grizzlies have been tragically hit by the injury bug this season. They’ve been significantly hit at the guard position with Mike Conley out with soreness in his Achilles and Mario Chalmers, who has been waived due to a season-ending Achilles tear. They went out and got new players; signing Briante Weber from the D-league, who has been seeing a lot of minutes out on the floor and they went and traded for Lance Stephenson, who has been on a tear since his appearance in Memphis. The Grizzlies’ management has deciding to add another face to the roster, as Shams Charania of The Vertical reports that Memphis will sign Jordan Farmar.
Free agent Jordan Farmar will sign a deal with the Grizzlies, league sources tell The Vertical. Farmar worked out for Memphis this week.

Farmar worked out for the Grizzlies last week after playing overseas in the Israeli Premier League. He last saw NBA time with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, only playing 36 games, averaging 4.6 points and 1.9 assists in 14.7 minutes before being waived. The 29-year old point guard is a seasoned vet that has 2 championships under his belt with the Los Angeles Lakers. At this point in his career, he’s not a player that will change a franchise but he can impact a Grizzlies team that other opponents don’t want to see come postseason.
