Grizzlies’ JaKarr Sampson: Signs with Grizzlies

Sampson signed with the Grizzlies on Friday.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s most likely that Sampson signed a non-guaranteed deal and was signed in the hopes that he would ultimately join the Grizzlies D-League team. With Memphis’ roster at 20 players and just fives days till the start of the regular season, don’t expect Sampson to be a mainstay on the team’s final 15-man roster.
