Memphis completed their mission of shredding $6 million in payroll by trading away forward Marreese Speights, guard Wayne Ellington and guard Josh Selby to Cleveland for forward Jon Leuer.

The Grizzlies, who are currently fourth in the Western Conference, have been playing with league minimum of 13 players.

Due to the recent trade, Memphis has to sign at least two players and we finally know who they are, according to Rodger Sherman of SBNation.

The Grizzlies will sign Sasha Vujacic, Bill Walker and Delonte West.

Vujacic has been playing in Europe, West was released by the Mavericks in October and Walker was a solid rotation player for the New York Knicks until he was cut midway through the season, after struggling with his shooting.

All three players have shown that they can produce in the league, especially West, who averaged five points and two assists in 17.6 minutes in seven games this season, before being waived after he was suspended twice in a two week span, for conduct detrimental to the team.

If these three players return to form for the Grizzlies, the trio could actually improve the Memphis roster, especially since Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph are presumed to be off the market.
