Former Gator Speights Traded To Memphis In NBA

Former Gator basketball player Marreese Speights has a new NBA home today.

Speights was traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Memphis Grizzlies as was swingman Xavier Henry. Henry was then traded to New Orleans and the Grizzlies and Hornets each sent a second round draft choice to Philly.

And bad news for the San Antonio Spurs who could lose guard Manu Ginobili for two months after suffering a broken hand. He will have surgery to fix the problem. He was averaging over 17 points a game for the Spurs.
