MEMPHIS, December 13, 2011 The Memphis Grizzlies waived Jared Reiner, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced today.

Reiner, a 6-11, 255-pound center, holds NBA career averages of 1.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 46 games (four starts) over two seasons with the Chicago Bulls (2004-05) and Milwaukee Bucks (2006-07). The 29-year-old spent last season with BBC Bayreuth in Germany, where he recorded 12.6 points and 7.8 rebounds.

The question from Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins was direct and pointed at the start of Saturday's practice session.

"What are you made of?"

Hollins is eager to find out just how tough -- both mentally and physically -- the Grizzlies will be this season. A couple of years ago, Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley predicted the day would come when opponents didn't want to play at FedExForum because they knew the welcome would be less than hospitable. Time has proven him prescient.

Veterans Davis, Moore, Reiner, Sharpe, Skinner add size, experience to Grizzlies.
