Report: Former Michigan State power forward Deyonta Davis agrees to rookie deal
Deyonta Davis and the Memphis Grizzlies have reportedly reached an agreement on the rookie’s contract.
Davis, a former Michigan State power forward who was selected with the 31st pick, has agreed to a three-year $4 million deal, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania. The deal would be the richest guaranteed salary for an American-born player taken in the second round of the NBA draft.
The Grizzlies, which had Davis rated as a mid-first round talent, acquired the Michigan State product through a trade with the Boston Celtics.
Davis averaged 7.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.8 blocks in his only season with the Spartans.
