Memphis Clears Up Money By Letting Hakim Warrick Go

The piece above on talks about how the Memphis Grizzlies freed up some money from the cap by letting Hakim Warrick go elsewhere possibly in the hopes of securing Allen Iverson or could be just preparing for a lowered cap in the future. Since he shared time with Darrell Arthur last year and the Grizzlies just got Zach Randolph in a trade recently, this was a position they felt flexible enough to move. Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace told, "We like Hakim and felt he contributed, but we wanted a little more flexibility going forward in free agency."

Warrick averaged 11 points and 5 rebounds a game last season so I think it is safe to assume someone will take a chance on him and offer him a decent deal in the near future. I finished reading that myself and wondered how he would fit on Minnesota's roster or reuniting with Carmelo in Denver (sorry, my mind goes Orange before it goes to reason every time). It is too early to tell who may sign him but I hope whatever team it is that takes a chance on him is rewarded for it in the end. Of course, the picture above is still one of my greatest memories in Syracuse sports history so I will always have great respect for him as a man and as a player so I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up.
