Free agent forward Leon Powe has decided to sign with the Memphis Grizzlies, a league source said Thursday. Powe had reached a contract buyout agreement with the Cavaliers earlier this week and had looked at several teams, including the Magic, Celtics and Knicks.

But Boston opted to sign forward Troy Murphy Wednesday, and Powe quickly looked hard at Memphis.
