Beverley (suspension) was traded to the Grizzlies on Sunday, along with Rajon Rondo and Daniel Oturu, in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: The deal is mostly financially motivated for the Clippers, who will shrink their luxury tax bill by roughly $30 million while getting out from under the $14.3 million Beverley is owed next season. While the hard-nosed guard was a staple of some memorable Clippers teams over the last four seasons, he's battled significant injury issues in three of those, including appearing in just 37 games in 2020-21. It's possible the veteran could remain in Memphis as a defensive-minded backup to Ja Morant, but Wojnarowski notes that the Grizzlies are open to the possibility of moving Beverley and Rondo elsewhere in separate deals.
