    The Memphis Grizzlies have landed one of the NBAs best recruiters in free agent forward Chandler Parsons. Brent Grimes Jersey .The Grizzlies agreed to terms with Parsons on a four-year maximum contract worth $94 million on Friday, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be signed until July 7.This is a perfect fit for me and I cant wait to get started!! Parsons posted on Instagram under a picture of him posing with new Grizzlies coach David Fizdale and a No. 25 Memphis jersey. I want to thank the owner (Robert Pera) for believing in me, Coach Fiz, JB (Bickerstaff), and everyone else involved!!Parsons also met with the Portland Trail Blazers before deciding on the Grizzlies.Signing Parsons is one of the biggest free agency moves the Grizzlies have ever made, and it instantly injects some much-needed energy and versatility into a lineup that appeared to have gotten a little old and stale last year.Parsons averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds for the Dallas Mavericks last season, but has dealt with injuries that limited him to 127 games over the last two years.When healthy, he is a playmaking forward who can shoot the 3-pointer -- a much-needed attribute for the Grizzlies -- and defend multiple positions.Parsons also has earned a reputation as being one of the best in the league at persuading other free agents to join him. He helped lure Dwight Howard to Houston and got DeAndre Jordan to commit to the Mavericks last summer before he changed his mind and stayed with the Clippers.Parsons left Houston two years ago for a three-year mini-max deal with the Mavericks, a strategy orchestrated by his agent Dan Fegan as a means of maximizing his earning potential. The deal included an opt-out after the second year that would allow him to plunge back into the free agent waters when the leagues new television deal sent the salary cap skyrocketing.So even though he has been limited by injuries in recent seasons, Parsons found no shortage of suitors as the free agent market opened. Portland offered him a chance to team up with rising star Damian Lillard on a tight-knit team that has designs on challenging in the Western Conference.Going to the Grizzlies also allowed him to reunite with assistant coach Bickerstaff, who was an assistant in Houston when Parsons played there.The team also let coach Dave Joerger leave for Sacramento, replacing him with Fizdale, a longtime assistant in Miami, and the new faces will be charged with pushing the Grizzlies back into the upper half of the West.

Murray continued his march towards the top spot by winning the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday. Super Murray wins in Vienna Andy Murray beats Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win Erste Bank Open in Vienna The 29-year-old Scot swept past Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6 (8-6) with an immaculate display in the final to earn his seventh title of the year. The Olympic and Wimbledon champion can take over the world No 1 ranking from Djokovic if he wins next weeks Paris Masters and the Serb fails to reach the final. Highlights of Andy Murray v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from the Vienna Open final Djokovic has been handed a tough route to the title in Paris, where he will start in the second round against Spains Nicolas Almagro or in-form Gilles Muller of Luxembourg.The top ranking could come to a head when he faces a blockbuster semi-final clash against US Open champion Stan Wawrinka.Murrays route is also a tough one and includes a potential opening second round match against Fernando Verdasco before facing Roberto Bautista Agut, Tomas Berdych and then a mouth-watering semi-final date against Milos Raonic or Kei Nishikori. Djokovic is fresh, but Djokovic has not won big matches of late and so long as Andy can have a chance mathematically and its in his control going into London - I think hell do it. Barry Cowan on Andy Murrays chances of becoming World No 1 And Sky Sports tennis expert Cowan feels Murray can do it if the mathematics work in his favour.Realistically, this is going to be very tough for Andy next week going into Paris, Cowan said. The hardest will be the first couple of rounds in Paris, and if he can get through those and the closer to the weekend he gets then I think he will be feeling better in himself and then he starts to see the finishing line.Djokovic is fresh, but Djokovic has not won big matches of late and so long as Andy can have a chance mathematically and its in his control going into London - I think hell do it.

He was coming into the final in so much confidence, playing his best tennis in every big match. Murray and Djokovics rivalry at the top of the rankings will continue in Paris Andy was so clear in how he wantedd to play and I think thats why hes been able to play such great, great tennis when it really matters. Peyton Barber Jersey. What was impressive from Andy was the way he was able to stem the Tsonga attack in the tie-break. But crucially in the tie-break Murray found the first serve again.Murray won an impressive 74 per cent of his second serve points in Sundays final and Cowan feels that is the most improved aspect of his game this year.Andys developed pace and variation - the ability to change it up. He used to always be consistent where he hit the serve - it was always in the same spot. Sometimes you need to vary it, go big to the backhand side, forehand, hit it with a little bit more spin, sometimes you have to go into the body. Hes started to do that a lot more and that comes from confidence. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99.
