When the Warriors face the Grizzlies this upcoming season, they'll see an old friend.
A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press the Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to terms with free-agent forward Brandan Wright.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been formally announced.
Yahoo Sports first reported the deal.

With teams across the NBA spending or offering huge sums of money on the opening day of free agency, the Grizzlies' deal with Wright looks like a potential bargain. The Grizzlies used their full mid-level exception - three years and about $18 million - to land the 6-foot-10 forward.
The 27-year-old averaged 7.3 points and 4.3 rebounds this past season while spending time with the Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns.
The move allows Wright to return to his home state. Wright grew up in the Nashville area.
