By Don Wade

The Memphis Grizzlies assured themselves of having an experienced back-up point guard to begin next season by re-signing Beno Udrih to a two-year contract.

Udrih, 32, was claimed off waivers late last season. He shined in the first-round, seven-game playoff series loss against Oklahoma City as he averaged 7.9 points and shot 47 percent from the floor. Udrih moved into the No. 2 point guard role as rookie Nick Calathes sat out the first seven games of a 20-game suspension after failing a league drug test.

Calathes will miss the first 13 games of this season, should he return to the Grizzlies. He has expressed a desire to go back to Europe where he would make significantly more money (a reported $6 million for three years); the Grizzlies, however, can bring Calathes back on a contract that would pay Calathes around $800,000 this season.

For his NBA career, Udrih has averaged 8.8 points and 3.6 assists. In 10 seasons, Udrih also has played for San Antonio, Sacramento, Milwaukee, Orlando and the New York Knicks.
