The Memphis Grizzlies selected Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison with the No. 44 pick in the 2015 NBA draft via trade with the Phoenix Suns. While the Grizzlies view Harrison as a good prospect, they don't have any room on their roster to begin the season. From Ronald Tillery of The Commercial-Appeal:
- "The Griz signed centers Ryan Hollins and Michael Holyfield, and guards Yakhouba Diawara, Lazeric Jones and Daniel Nwaelele to non-guaranteed training camp deals. Memphis has the NBA-maximum 20 players for camp, but the list doesn't include second-round draft pick Andrew Harrison. Harrison became expendable after Russ Smith earned a guaranteed contract by leading the Grizzlies to the Orlando summer league championship in July."
With Harrison not taking his second round tender from the Grizzlies, he will probably spend 2015-16 in the D-League playing for Memphis' team, the Iowa Energy.
