Originally posted on Grizzlies Locker  |  Last updated 1/4/12
The Grizzlies have acquired 24-year old power forward Marreese Speights from the 76ers in a three-team deal also involving the Hornets.  The Grizzlies have sent 20-year old shooting guard Xavier Henry to the Hornets and a 2nd round pick in 2012 to the 76ers as part of this deal.  The 76ers will also get a 2nd round pick in 2013 from the Hornets.  Speights played in 64 games (1 start) for the Sixers last year and he averaged 11.5 minutes, 5.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.  He has now played in 205 games (4 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 14.7 minutes, 7.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.  Speights will definitely help up front due to the injury to Zach Randolph.  Xavier Henry played in 38 games (16 starts) for the Grizzlies as a rookie last year and he was averaging 13.9 minutes, 4.3 points, 1.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.
