MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Memphis Grizzlies have signed free agent Keyon Dooling, luring the veteran guard out of retirement to add more depth for the postseason.

The Grizzlies announced the deal Wednesday.

Dooling, 32, announced his retirement Sept. 20 after signing with the Boston Celtics on July 31. He has started 86 of his 721 games with the Clippers, Heat, Magic, Nets, Bucks and Celtics. He averages 7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists as a 41.5 percent shooter, and Dooling played 46 games with two starts for Boston last season.

The 10th overall pick in 2000 by Orlando out of Missouri, Dooling also has made four previous trips to the postseason where he averaged 5.3 points and an assist shooting 45.4 percent over 49 playoff games.
