Wayne Selden went undrafted out of Kansas last year, spent most of this season in the D-League, recently had a 10-day contract with the Pelicans, but is still looking for his spot in the NBA.

In need of shooting, the Grizzlies are going to give him a shot, something first reported by Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

Selden seemed to confirm the news.

Selden, a 6'6" swingman, was seen as a potential “3&D” guy in the NBA, but one who needed to develop his shot and consistency. The Grizzlies brought him into training camp but waived him, and he went to the D-League for much of the season where he averaged 18.7 points per game, shooting 35.7 percent from three, for Iowa. He also did this while there.
