Golden Nuggets: Grizzlies make first move of NBA trade season

One of these guys got traded ... - Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Trade rumors have been swirling for a few weeks now with various names being the key players being floated around. The Memphis Grizzlies finally made a move and one not involving one of their starters.

Grizzlies trade Speights and Selby to Cleveland - Straight Outta Vancouver

Grizzlies received: Jon Leuer
Cavaliers received: Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby, and 2015 first round pick

Pretty ugly deal for the Grizzlies who are hellbent on not paying the luxury tax it seems. Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph have been the two names floated around out of Memphis for a couple weeks now and this little move could be the first of many for the Grizz. Apparently John Hollinger was very high on Leuer coming out of Wisconsin. Speights joins his third team and had seen his minutes fall from Lionel Hollins from about 22 per game last season to 14 this season.

Memphis also has added some free agents: Bill Walker, Delonte West, and Sasha Vujacic.
