Beno Udrih finished last season as the Memphis Grizzlies' primary backup point guard to Mike Conley Jr. following Nick Calathes' suspension. There was some speculation that Udrih could be the odd man out with Calathes seemingly returning and Sebastian Telfair drawing interest from Memphis, but ESPN.com's Marc Stein is reporting that Udrih and the Grizzlies have agreed on a new deal.
Per Stein, Udrih signed a two-year deal for the bi-annual exception.
In his 12-year career, Udrih has averaged 8.9 points and 3.6 assists per game.
If Calathes ends up bolting Memphis to play overseas, Udrih could reclaim the backup role. Memphis has until July 15 to waive Calathes’ contract.
Hearing: Beno Udrih has committed to sign and stay with Memphis. Deal to be completed today— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 10, 2014
