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.
Jul 25 - 12:52 PM

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.
Apr 1 - 10:16 AM

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.
Mar 29 - 12:19 AM

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.
Mar 26 - 12:35 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.
Mar 25 - 8:14 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 10:24 AM

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.
Mar 22 - 11:59 AM

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.
Mar 19 - 11:09 PM

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.
Mar 19 - 7:50 PM

Ray McCallum played 16 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with six points, one assist and two 3-pointers.

It looked like McCallum was going to be the better point guard to own in deep leagues over Briante Weber, but coach Dave Joerger appears to trust Weber's defense. McCallum's upside isn't great anyway, so he's not the strongest hold in deep leagues.
Mar 16 - 10:55 PM

Ray McCallum was held to five points on 2-of-10 shooting vs. the Rockets on Monday with two boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He had three turnovers and obviously didn't shoot it well, but he wasn't exactly surrounded by a lot of talent either. McCallum had a nice debut on Saturday vs. the Hawks with 13 points, four boards, two assists, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes, so it makes sense to give him another chance in deeper leagues considering Mike Conley (Achilles) is out for several weeks.
Mar 14 - 10:40 PM

Ray McCallum made his Memphis debut on Saturday vs. the Hawks, scoring 13 points with four boards, two assists, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

He came off the bench behind Briante Weber, but he outplayed the rookie and even saw minutes at the two. The Grizzlies need healthy bodies with Mike Conley (Achilles) out for 3-4 weeks, so there's a decent chance that McCallum could make some noise the rest of the way. He's worth a look in deeper leagues for any owner in need of a guard.
Mar 12 - 10:34 PM

The Grizzlies have signed free agent PG Ray McCallum to a 10-day deal and he will be available to play on Saturday vs. the Hawks.

The Grizzlies just found out on Saturday that Mike Conley (Achilles) will be out for 3-4 weeks, so McCallum will likely see playing time right away and should challenge Briante Weber for the starting role. Given the amount of available playing time in Memphis, both Weber and McCallum are worth speculative adds in deeper leagues with the edge going to McCallum due to his experience.
