The Memphis Grizzlies have officially announced the signing of second-round pick Ivan Rabb, the team announced in a press release.
While terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team, Rabb reportedly signed a three year contract, with two years guaranteed.
Per the release:
Rabb (6-10, 220), selected 35th overall by the Orlando Magic and traded to the Grizzlies for a future second round draft pick, appeared in 31 games (30 starts) and averaged 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.00 blocks in 32.6 minutes last season as a sophomore at the University of California. The 20-year-old was named All-Pac 12 First Team after leading the Pac-12 in rebounding both overall and in conference play (11.4 rebounds) and also was one of 10 finalists for the Karl Malone Award, given by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame to the nation’s top collegiate power forward.
