Henry signed a contract with Ironi Nahariya of the Israeli BSL league, Sportando reports. Henry spent the 2017-18 campaign on a two-way contract with the Grizzlies, playing 20 games and averaging 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.6 steals acros 18.9 minutes. Despite the solid production in limited playing time, Henry didn't find much interest elsewhere in the NBA and will now head overseas to Israel with the hope of boosting his stock.
Henry was waived by the Grizzlies on Friday, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports. The Grizzlies are signing Yuta Watanabe to a contract, but had to waive someone to make room -- Henry being that casualty. He appeared in 20 games for Memphis last season, averaging 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.1 assists across 18.9 minutes.
Henry produced 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 20 games played with Memphis during the 2017-18 season. Henry played most of his rookie season for Memphis' G League squad but earned the occasional callup. The former DePaul guard's best game was on Jan. 22 where he dropped 12 points and added four steals against the 76ers. Henry will be a free agent in July, where it's likely that he will sign a two-way contract with a team looking for guard depth.
Henry had two points (1-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 123-95 loss to the Pelicans. Henry saw the floor for the first time since March 7, as he received a DNP-Coach's Decision designation during each of the last 13 tilts. As such, he's not a guy who should be relied on in most leagues.
Henry had five points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 119-110 loss to the Bulls. After reaching double figures in scoring during two of his first seven appearances, the 25-year-old rookie has failed to do so once in the last eight tilts. With the Grizzlies focused on developing young players and turning over every rock in search of gems during this lost season, Henry will likely continue to see decent minutes going forward. Even still, he's more of a hustle player than someone to rely on for fantasy purposes.
