Austin Rivers is expected to sign with the Grizzlies after he's waived by the Suns, per Shams Charania.
It turns out the Grizzlies got into the Suns-Wizards deal after all, and they didn't give up any assets to do it. Rivers will give them some much-needed help in the backcourt and figures to be the first wing off the bench, though he may eventually challenge Shelvin Mack for backup point guard work. This hurts the deep-league appeal for Wayne Selden, MarShon Brooks and Dillon Brooks (when he's ready to return from injury). It's not a bad spot for Rivers' fantasy prospects but he's still only worth looking at in 16-teamers for the time being.
