According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Memphis Grizzlies have signed center Tyler Zeller to the rest of the season. He was most recently with the Atlanta Hawks.
Zeller will be another big body for the final four games of the season. He could potentially be with the team on Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas, Texas.
Besides Friday, he will be with the team on Sunday, also against the Mavericks. He will close out the season with the team against the Detroit Pistons and the Golden State Warriors.
The Grizzlies are presently without Jonas Valančiūnas and Jaokim Noah, who are sidelined with injuries. Zeller will help eat minutes at the center position.
He signed a 10-day deal with the Hawks on March 8. They elected not to re-sign him after his deal expired.
The 29-year-old Visalia, California native appeared in two games with the Hawks. While he didn’t score any points, he averaged 3.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 5.5 minutes per contest.
He was released before the season started with the Milwaukee Bucks, who released him on Oct. 13. He was traded to the Bucks in Feb. 2018 from the Brooklyn Nets for a second round draft pick Rashad Vaughn and a second round draft pick.
Besides playing for the Hawks, Zeller has also played for the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Nets, and the Bucks.
