Keyon Dooling is still the favorite to sign with the Grizzlies, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Grizzlies have been sniffing around the guard market for a few weeks and Dooling has always ben thought of as a primary target. If signed, he'll offer no fantasy value and would have to prove he's in basketball shape after not playing all year.

A source told Chris Vernon that the Grizzlies are evaluating five guards and are expected to sign one for the playoff push.

The five guards are Keyon Dooling, Jonny Flynn, Courtney Fourtson, Sundiata Gaines and Scott Machado. The Grizzlies could use a veteran presence at the point, so adding someone like Dooling or Gaines might make more sense than the others.

The Grizzlies are reportedly hoping to sign Keyon Dooling, according to Peter Vecsey.

Dooling has not made a final decision, but he's been in contact with the Grizzlies and plans to make a decision by the upcoming weekend. The point guard has been working in the Celtics' front office this season and would have to leave that position to play again. Memphis is also said to be considering Jonny Flynn as an alternative to Dooling.

Keyon Dooling, who works in an executive role for the Celtics, says he doesn't plan on making a comeback after all.

Dooling made the announcement Wednesday on Twitter. After the Celtics lost Rajon Rondo (torn ACL) for the season, Dooling said he had "entertained thoughts" about returning this season. Coach Doc Rivers even admitted he'd told Dooling to start getting back into basketball shape, but it appears GM Danny Ainge was correct when he said the 32-year-old Dooling isn't an option.

Doc Rivers told Keyon Dooling to get back into basketball shape as his return to the Celtics is a possibility.

In the wake of Rajon Rondo's torn ACL, Keyon Dooling, now 32 years old, could consider a comeback.

Dooling works in an executive role for the Celtics, but he could return to the floor. "I'm not in shape, but I would [consider it]," he said. Dooling has "entertained thoughts" of returning, but Rondo's injury could expedite a decision from the veteran.

Keyon Dooling is not interested in joining the Heat, contrary to previous speculation.

"Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it's time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family," his agent said. "He will never forget his time with the Boston Celtics."
