Xavier Henry Sidelined While Grizz Contract Talks Continue

Posted: Updated:

Grizzlies top Draft Pick Xavier Henry continues to sit out the Summer League while negotiating his contract.

Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace tells me the holdup is over performance bonuses.

Wallace says while it may be customary to give first round picks up to 120% of what they're slotted to make, the Grizzlies want their players to earn those increases.

Most Rookies, including number 28 overall pick Greivis Vasquez, play while their contracts are negotiated.
