John Konchar News
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard/small forward John Konchar has inked a three-year, $19 million contract extension to remain with the franchise, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Konchar has been a lightly utilized reserve for the Grizzlies over the past three seasons, although he appeared in a career-best 72 games last year, including his first seven starts. Having averaged 4.8 points and 4.6 boards off the bench, the 26-year-old likely remains on the outside looking in of the vast majority of season-long fantasy formats, even as he has shot 40.6 percent from long range throughout his career.
Memphis Grizzlies forward John Konchar had his $2.3 million salary become fully guaranteed. The 26-year-old has been in the league for three years, all in Memphis, and has averaged 4.4 points, 3.8 boards, and 1.3 assists while shooting 40.6% from deep. It appears the Grizzlies want to keep him around, and it's possible he will receive a more prominent role in the rotation moving ahead after the team traded De'Anthony Melton to Philadelphia during the 2022 NBA Draft. Although that won't make Konchar an everyday fantasy option, he may get some work this season, so the streaming potential is there.
Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard/small forward John Konchar entered the starting five for Sunday's regular-season finale vs. Boston and took advantage of his 39 minutes to the tune of his first career triple-double. Konchar collected 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting, adding 13 rebounds and a career-high 10 assists. With the Grizzlies playing very few of their regulars in the finale, fantasy managers shouldn't anticipate Konchar getting a similar workload come Game 1 of the Western Conference playoffs Saturday. Konchar concludes his third NBA regular season having averaged 4.8 points and 4.6 boards on a nightly basis.
Memphis Grizzlies guard John Konchar has entered the league's health and safety protocols. He marks the fifth player on this roster to enter protocols. The Grizzlies are desperately lacking depth on the wings right now. Desmond Bane is looking like a must-have fantasy option lately. Kyle Anderson is quickly picking up value with the Grizzlies losing players. Bane is obviously the better option between the two, but Anderson is at least worth rostering in deep leagues right now.
