Warrick headed to Bucks

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that Hakim Warrick has agreed to a one year $3 million deal with the Bucks. The 6-foot-9 forward has played the past four seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged 11.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in 82 games last season coming off the bench.

It was reported that a number of teams, including Charlotte, Cleveland and Philadelphia had expressed interest in him. With the loss of Richard Jefferson (trade) and Charlie Villanueva (free agency) Warrick will likely end up in a starting role for the Bucks.

Several teams interested in Grizzlies' No. 2 pick

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that the Grizzlies have been approached by several teams interested in acquiring their No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft.

The story mentions the Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and New York Knicks as the names rumored to be asking about the pick.

Of those three teams, only the Knicks have a first-round pick (No. 8 overall) they could possibly use as part of a trade. Boston and Houston would probably have to part with some established talent to sweeten the deal for Memphis.

The Knicks are said to be interested in acquiring Ricky Rubio .

Foyle to return to Orlando?

The Orlando Sentinel reports that center Adonal Foyle could return to the Orlando Magic, if he is waived by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Magic GM Otis Smith confirmed to the paper that he might be interested in re-signing the big man if and when the Grizzlies cut ties with the recently acquired Foyle. Foyle went to the Grizzlies last week as part of a trade that also sent PG Mike Wilks to Memphis, although the Magic are said to have little interest in the chance to bring Wilks back if he is waived.

Report: Miles to remain with Grizzlies


Memphis Edge reports that the Grizzlies are happy with Darius Miles , and plan to sign him for the remainder of the season and allow him to continue his comeback.

The Grizzlies originally signed Miles to a pair of 10-day contracts, the most recent of which expired Jan. 28. Miles has proven himself to be a valuable backup power forward or center, and if the Grizzlies had not decided to re-sign him, they would have had two weeks to sign another player to their roster, which is currently at the league-minimum 13.

Report: Bucks weighing trade offer from Grizzlies

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that a potential trade between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Milwaukee Bucks is in the works, but there could be a hold-up on the Bucks' side.

The story said Memphis would like to send PG Mike Conley to Milwaukee in exchange for both Ramon Sessions and Joe Alexander. Milwaukee appears to be considering the deal, but sources believe they could be reluctant to part with Alexander. Some believe Memphis is more interested in Sessions anyway, so it remains to be seen whether Alexander remains part of the bargain -- and, if not, whether that would be a deal-breaker.

Walker expects buyout from Grizzlies

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Antoine Walker expects to recieve a contract buyout from the Memphis Grizzlies today.

Walker was traded to the Grizzlies by the Minnesota Timberwolves during the offseason in the deal that secured O.J. Mayo for the Grizzlies and sent Kevin Love to the Wolves. Walker has yet to appear in a regular season game for the Grizzlies, and has not played in any regular season NBA game since Feb. 19, when he played eight minutes for the Timberwolves vs. Philadelphia.

Walker came to the Wolves more than a year ago in a trade from the Miami Heat. Walker, 32, hopes a buyout will provide him the opportunity to find a team willing to give him a chance to prove he's still valuable on the court.

"Hopefully, with this buyout, the opportunity is going to be there for me," Walker said. "Maybe I can go and talk to a few teams and hopefully move on to a better situation very soon."
