Grizzlies Sign Guard Wayne Selden To Two-Year Deal

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed guard Wayne Selden to a two-year deal, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders.

The 22-year-old Selden originally signed with the Grizzlies as an undrafted free agent last summer. However, shortly before the 2016-17 season began, he was waived.

He proceeded to sign a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans in March, and after that deal was up, he signed back with the Grizzlies.

Now, Memphis is giving him a multi-year pact.

Selden played in 14 games last season, making five starts. In 16.9 minutes per game, he averaged 5.1 points while shooting 43.1 percent from the floor, 25 percent from three-point range and 63.6 percent from free-throw line.

Selden is most known for his three-year collegiate career at the University of Kansas.

During his final season with the Jayhawks, Selden averaged 13.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game, connecting on 47.4 percent of his field-goal attempts and nailing 39.2 percent of his three-point tries.

After the strong campaign, Selden decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and declare for the NBA Draft, but he failed to get picked.

Overall, Selden averaged 11 points, three boards and 2.6 dimes per game at Kansas, shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from deep.

The Grizzlies are coming off of a 2016-17 campaign in which they went 43-39 and were eliminated in six games by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.

Memphis has made the postseason seven consecutive seasons, peaking in a Western Conference Finals appearance back in 2013.

The Grizzlies were eliminated in the opening round in four of those years.
