Report: Cavaliers Castoff Lester Hudson Signs With Grizzlies

NBA

After a successful pair of 10-day contracts with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Lester Hudson has found another job — he’s caught on with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to the Associated Press.

Hudson played 13 games during his brief stint with the Cavs this season and put up huge numbers — 12.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game, including a career-high 26 points in an April 8 overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets.

“If he can come in and help us for one game or two games in the playoffs, it’s always good,” Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said.

This is Hudson’s second stint with the Grizzlies — he played for the squad in nine games back in his rookie season of 2009-10. Hudson was originally drafted by the Boston Celtics, No. 58 overall, in 2009.
