Posted Apr 17, 2013 3:26 PM

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Memphis Grizzlies have filled out their roster to the maximum of 15 by signing forward Donte Greene and forward/center Willie Reed to multi-year contracts.

The Grizzlies announced the deals Wednesday without disclosing details.

Memphis originally drafted Greene at No. 28 overall in 2008 before trading him as part of a three-way swap for the draft rights to forward Darrell Arthur. The 6-foot-11 Greene has started 82 of his 253 games over four seasons with Sacramento but missed most of this season recovering after breaking his ankle Aug. 25.

The 6-foot-10 Reed has been in the D-League after signing as a free agent with Sacramento only to be waived Oct. 26. Reed started 30 games in Springfield where he averaged 14.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.77 blocks in 48 games.
