The Grizzlies made big man Deyonta Davis the highest-paid second round draft pick in history with a three-year, $4 million deal.
Davis will be making more money than half the first rounders and the Grizzlies get to keep his Bird Rights. Surely Davis was sweating in the green room as he fell on draft night, but this is a nice consolation prize and so is getting to play in Memphis where he can learn under Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. The Grizzlies have had a really nice offseason and Davis is a part of that.
