Grizzlies Sign guard Acie Law
Memphis, August 5th, 2010– The Grizzlies have signed guard Acie Law, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Acie is a former lottery pick whose offensive skills, ability to drive the basketball, set up his teammates, work hard on the defensive end and excellent work ethic will all help to fortify our backcourt," Wallace said.

The 6-3, 202-pound guard has averaged 3.7 points, 1.6 assists and 1.0 rebounds in 12.1 minutes in 137 career games (eight starts) with the Hawks, Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Bobcats and most recently with the Chicago Bulls.
The 25-year-old appeared in 26 total games (one start) last season, averaging 4.3 points and 1.0 assists for the Bobcats, Warriors and Bulls, where he recorded a career-high 22 points on 7-of-8 shooting at Dallas on March 17, 2010.
Law earned several accolades during his four-year career at Texas A&M, winning the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s top guard as a senior in 2006-07. The Dallas, Tex. native was also a consensus All-American in 2006-07 and was named First Team All-Big 12 as a junior and senior.
