  • Miles Plumlee: Finds work in Australia

    Plumlee signed a one-year contract Wednesday with the Perth Wildcats of the Australian National Basketball League.

    After spending the first seven seasons of his career in the NBA, Plumlee has elected to ply his trade overseas since he was cut by the Grizzlies in training camp in October. Before joining the Australian club, Plumlee had a brief stint in the Chinese Basketball Association in December, appearing in seven games for the Zhejiang Lions.

  • Miles Plumlee: Let go by Memphis

    Plumlee was waived by the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Plumlee was acquired in July in what was essentially a bad-contract swap with the Hawks. It's unsurprising that he has been let go by the rebuilding Grizzlies. He may be able to latch on with another team as a second or third center off the bench.

  • Hawks' Miles Plumlee: Dealt to Memphis

    Plumlee (knee), along with Solomon Hill, has been traded to the Grizzlies in exchange for Chandler Parsons, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    In what is essentially a bad-contract swap for both teams, Plumlee will land on his sixth team in his seven-year career. Dealing with knee issues, he played just 18 games last season, and he hasn't cracked the 1,000-minute mark since 2014-15. It's unlikely he carries a fantasy-relevant role for next season.

  • Hawks' Miles Plumlee: Undergoing season-ending surgery

    Plumlee will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his injured left knee and be sidelined for the rest of the season, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Plumlee has been sidelined since December with soreness in his left knee and remained without a clear timetable since then. The Hawks should have an update on Plumlee's timetable once the operation is complete, but it is unclear as to what the big man's future in the league is. Given that Plumlee will be on an expiring contract next season, he may be a valuable trade asset for the Hawks should they want to make improvements to their young core in the offseason.
