After Mike Conley out indefinitely after suffering transverse process fracture in the vertebrae, the Grizzlies are interested in signing a former NBA Champion.

Memphis have 11-7 in the Western Conference but after the reports about Conley, they will try to add point guard on their roster.

Norris Cole is currently in China, playing for Shandong Golden Stars. He has an NBA opt-out clause and the Grizzlies could be a good option for him.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports has more names as well.

With the possibility that the Grizzlies could apply for the exception, creating a 16th roster spot, the Grizzlies plan to start working out free-agent point guards, league sources told The Vertical. Included among the several players expected to visit the Grizzlies for tryouts: Kendall Marshall, Toney Douglas and Will Bynum, league sources told The Vertical.

They really don't have a good backup for Mike Conley, because W. Baldwin and Andrew Harrison don't have enough experience for the most important position on the court.

We'll see in the next few days who will play with the Grizzlies this season and how many weeks will miss Mike Conley (6-8 unofficial report).
