NBA, Memphis Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies have exercised the fourth-year contract option on forward Jarell Martin, the team announced Tuesday.

The 25th pick in 2015, Martin persuaded Memphis to keep him around after a strong performance during the preseason that has continued into the season. The 6-foot-10, 239-pound Martin has started six of seven games, and he is averaging a career-high 7.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 23.9 minutes.

Martin left LSU after his sophomore season and had played 32 games with the Grizzlies' G League team the past two seasons.
