MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Grizzlies have signed forward Dante Cunningham after the Charlotte Bobcats declined to match Memphis' offer to the restricted free agent.

Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace made the announcement Saturday. The team did not release terms of the deal.

The 24-year-old Cunningham played in 22 games for the Bobcats last season, averaging 9 points and four rebounds on 50.8 percent shooting after a mid-season trade from the Portland Trail Blazers.
