Since the Memphis Grizzlies have no player on their roster listed as a center, GM Chris Wallace is looking to acquire one via free agency. But how desperate is Wallace to find a big man? It is rumored that the Griz have been talking to Orlando’s Darko Milicic out in Las Vegas during the NBA’s Summer League. Milicic isn’t the only player that the Magic have been looking at and talking to, but still…… It’s Darko Milicic.
Memphis has the 7’0″ forward Pau Gasol, who averages 20 points and 9 boards a game, but obviously they think their play down low is lackluster. Either that or Memphis is expecting to get trade offers for Pau from other teams very soon, since Gasol is not a free agent.
It looks like Darko might have another shot to prove himself with an NBA team. Nothing is for certain yet, and this is just a rumor, but it looks like the Grizzlies are getting a little bit desperate in their search for a center.
