Josh Smith Signed the Offer Sheet

According to Chris Wallace, Josh Smith officially signed the offer sheet on Friday before 6:00 PM.

Atlanta matched immediately.

This does show the Grizzlies, once again, are willing to take chances. Nothing great comes to those that wait. These are not your old Jerry West Grizzlies who would promise great things and deliver nothing. Under Chris Wallace's leadership Memphis has signed Darko Milicic, traded for Juan Carlos Navarro, traded Pau Gasol, traded Mike Miller and draft pick Kevin Love and now signed Josh Smith.

Not a bad 14 months on the job as far as shaking things up on the Grizzlies even if Atlanta does in fact match the offer.

3 Shades of Blue hopes to have an interview with GM Chris Wallace over the weekend so keep checking back.
