Transactions[edit]

On July 27, the Memphis Grizzlies signed unrestricted free agent Darko Miličić. This is the third team Darko has played for in the past 4 years.

The Grizzlies biggest transaction this season has been trading their All Star center, Pau Gasol to the Los Angeles Lakers. The trade gave the Lakers some strength in the front court and gave the Grizzlies some draft picks and prospects and it opened up room in their Salary Cap

Trades[edit]

On February 1, 2008, the struggling Memphis Grizzlies, traded away their All-Star center Pau Gasol and a future second round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers, for center Kwame Brown, rookie point guard Javaris Crittenton, Aaron Mckie, the draft rights Pau's brother, Marc Gasol, along with two future first round draft picks. It's been the first time ever in league history that a player has been traded for their brother.[1]
