John Konchar will continue one more year in the Memphis Grizzlies. The guard The 26-year-old has seen his contract guaranteed for the 2022-23 academic year in the last few hours, since it was this past Sunday when the deadline for the Tennessee franchise to dispense with his services or assure him of the missing $840,000 was met. his salary of 2.3 million.
This is not a surprise. Since making his debut with the team in 2019, Konchar has steadily stepped up to become an important part of Taylor Jenkins’ rotation last year, who used him 17.9 minutes a night to be rewarded with 4. 8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per night.
Regardless of his stats, this Purdue FW-trained kid’s game fits right in with the Grizzlies’ culture. He not only ensures outside success –40.6% in his still short career–, but also brings an energy and intensity to the track that are essential to play for the Grizzlies. They already know, grind and grind.
Leaving aside this ‘movement’, the reality is that Memphis is experiencing a quiet market. With a firm roster structure, they have simply wrapped up the re-signing of Tyus Jones and the maximum extension of Ja Morant, who has been linked to the team for another five years and $193 million. On the negative side of the summer balance is Jaren Jackson Jr., who will be sidelined by injury for a period of 4-6 months.
