McCallum is expected to be released by the Grizzlies on Saturday, Chris Vernon of ESPN reports.
McCallum's second 10-day contract will be expiring and the Grizzlies have opted to bring in Bryce Cotton on a 10-day contract instead of signing McCallum for the rest of the season. In 10 appearances with the Grizzlies, including three starts, McCallum finished with averages of 6.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists over 22 minutes per game. He'll head to the free agent market and could get a look from guard needy teams moving into the playoffs.
McCallum compiled seven points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 21 minutes during the Memphis Grizzlies ' 110-104 loss to the Spurs on Friday.
McCallum moved to the bench on Friday while Jordan Farmar took his spot in the starting lineup and saw 23 minutes. With Mike Conley (Achilles) out for the remainder of the regular season, McCallum seems likely to receive a contract for the rest of 2015-16. The Grizzlies have a rematch against the Spurs on Monday.
McCallum signed a second 10-day contract with the
McCallum has been thrust into action right away after initially signing with the Grizzlies on March 12. Through six games, the point guard is averaging 8.5 points, 2.8 assists, and 1.7 rebounds, though he's shooting only 38.5 percent from the floor. Even so, the injury-riddled Grizzlies don't really have any other options, so McCallum will likely continue to see a heavy minutes load with the starting lineup until Mike Conley (Achilles) returns, although the Grizzlies will have a decision to make once McCallum's second 10-day deal expires.
McCallum had nine points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven assists, two steals, and one rebound in 25 minutes during the
McCallum dished out seven assists to only one turnover in his second straight start. He has seen a combined 60 minutes over the last two games while averaging 11.5 points, five assists, 1.5 rebounds, one steal, and one block. With Mike Conley (Achilles) out for at least a couple more weeks, McCallum seems likely to continue drawing starts at point guard.
McCallum provided 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three assists and two rebounds over 35 minutes in Saturday's 113-102 victory over the Clippers.
Moving into the starting lineup for the first time in Memphis, the third-year veteran made solid contributions across the stat sheet. Although he played a secondary role on offense to Zach Randolph and Tony Allen, McCallum largely took advantage of his scoring opportunities to generate a season-high point total. With Briante Weber having struggled to provide much offense during his brief tenure with the first unit, McCallum may well be in line for additional starts after Saturday's performance.
