Ray McCallum has won a spot on Detroit's final roster.

McCallum beat out Lorenzo Brown for the third-string point guard spot. He'll begin the season as Ish Smith's backup given Reggie Jackson (knee) will be sidelined to start the campaign.

Ray McCallum and Lorenzo Brown are battling for the final roster spot in Detroit.

"It's just everything," Van Gundy said of the evaluation process. "Every day is one more piece to evaluate on. Like I've said — it's a tough decision. I think they are both NBA players, and I don't think there's any doubt about that. We're lucky to have them and we're lucky to have that decision to make." Van Gundy likely won't make an official decision until Sunday, but neither guy will be worth drafting in most leagues.

Stan Van Gundy said that choosing between backup PGs Lorenzo Brown and Ray McCallum will be "a difficult decision."

"We really liked what Lorenzo had done in Summer League ... but wanted to be in a situation where we could have some guys come into camp and compete," Van Gundy said. "Always liked Ray. He can really, really get down and guard ... so far it has been a good battle." No matter which player makes the cut, they're out of the equation in fantasy leagues while Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith are healthy.

Ray McCallum may be trailing Lorenzo Brown in the fight for a spot on the Pistons' regular season roster.

According to beat writer Rod Beard of The Detroit News, "Brown had a good Summer League, and with his familiarity with the offense, looks to be ahead of Ray McCallum Jr." Stan Van Gundy was non-committal when asked about the two PGs, both of whom are vying for a third-string job behind Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith.

The Pistons have officially signed Ray McCallum.

He didn't crack the rotation in San Antonio last season and ended up with the Grizzlies on a pair of 10-day contracts. McCallum could be the third-string PG in Detroit with a strong training camp, but he won't be relevant in fantasy leagues.

Ray McCallum is expected to sign with the Pistons.

Detroit has been in the market for a third-string point guard, but McCallum would have to beat out Lorenzo Brown in order to take that job. Reggie Jackson and Ish Smith are locked in at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively on the depth chart. There is no fantasy spin here.

The Grizzlies will not keep Ray McCallum for the remainder of the season.

His second 10-day contract has expired and the Grizzlies will sign Bryce Cotton to a 10-day deal. McCallum didn't play well in Memphis, but he's still young and should get another shot to make an NBA roster.

Ray McCallum made 5-of-13 from the field for 10 points with one rebound, four assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

He is going to remain on the Grizzlies for the rest of this month, but he probably hasn't done enough to be signed for the season after that. McCallum hasn't done enough in fantasy to warrant a pickup.

Ray McCallum made 3-of-10 from the field for seven points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's played some ugly ball. McCallum will lose more playing time to Jordan Farmar and can be dropped in most leagues. There's almost no chance he makes it past his second 10-day.
Sat, Mar 26, 2016 12:35:00 AM

Ray McCallum will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Spurs.

Jordan Farmar is going to get the start tonight, but McCallum should still be able to see some quality minutes tonight with Memphis desperate for depth. However, with a tough matchup against San Antonio, he's a risky guy to deploy in most settings.

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace heaped praise on Ray McCallum.

"He's got some range on his shot. He can run a team," Wallace said. "He's another guy that's been around and his career is still in its formative stages. This is only his third year in the league." The Grizzlies need McCallum to step with Mike Conley's (Achilles) regular season likely over, but he's averaging just 6.6 points and 2.8 assists over his last five games and has been outplayed by Jordan Farmar. McCallum is still on the radar based on opportunity alone.

The Grizzlies have signed Ray McCallum to a second 10-day contract.

McCallum is averaging 8.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.5 three-pointers in six games with the Grizzlies and has logged an average of 30 minutes in his last two games. While McCallum isn't a must-add, he's on the fantasy radar with Mike Conley (Achilles) still out.

Ray McCallum moved into the starting lineup on Saturday vs. the Clippers and played well, scoring 14 points with three assists, two boards, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

He played 35 minutes which is a really good sign and shot 6-of-12 from the field with a couple of turnovers. McCallum did not look good at all in his previous four games with Memphis with averages of 7.0 points, 1.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.5 3-pointers and 2.0 turnovers, so most owners will want to see him do this again. Put him on your radar for now.

Ray McCallum will start at point guard on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

He will be joined by Lance Stephenson, Tony Allen, Zach Randolph and Ryan Hollins in the first unit. McCallum has not played well in Memphis and is averaging 7.0 points, 1.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.5 3-pointers and 2.0 turnovers, so most owners will want to monitor him from the wire.
