Grizzlies Waive Jones; Pau Trade Talk Escalates 

"Eddie Jones has been waived by the Grizzlies. In the press release announcing the signing, Jerry West suggested Jones would have a great future in the league after his playing career is over. I agree. I'd love to see him as an assistant coach for the Grizzlies in the near future.

"To fill the roster spot created by Jones' departure, the Grizzlies have signed Will Conroy to a 10-day contract.

"Conroy is a 24-year-old point guard who graduated from the University of Washington in 2005 and went unselected in that summer’s draft. At 6’2”, 195 pounds, he has good size for the position."
