Grizzlies re-sign Udrih

We now know the fates of the Grizzlies' free agents not named Mike Miller. 

James Johnson, the inconsistent-but-exciting wing, agreed to a two-year deal worth about $5 million this morning with the Raptors, according to 92.9 FM ESPN's and CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish. 

Johnson averaged seven points and three assists per game last season. He was arrested last month for domestic assault but had his case dismissed. 

As for the other: Beno Udrih, who captivated Memphis with his overwhelmingly positive tweets, re-signed with the Grizzlies this afternoon under the bi-annual exception worth about $2.1 million, the team announced. 

Udrih averaged 4.9 points and 2.8 assists per game last season and was especially effective in the playoffs, stepping up for a suspended Nick Calathes. 

There's still no word on Miller's status. Miller is in South Dakota for his grandmother's funeral. The Grizzlies originally offered a two-year deal worth between $2.4 and $2.9 million annually. 

Miller has fielded interest from the Nuggets, Suns, Rockets, and Cavaliers, to name a few.
