Former Husky Will Conroy has signed a 10-day contract with the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA.
Here is a report from OurSportsCentral, a site reporting on minor league sports (which I used regularly in my days covering the Tacoma Sabercats).
"To know where Will came from and to know how hard he worked and will continue to work, it's very very exciting," coach Lorenzo Romar said. "Everytime I hear about it I just think about how many hours and days he's put in the gym working. There are so many young players who feel like it is their birthright to play in the NBA and that if us coaches don't mess them up, they're going to get there. He did not approach it that way. He approached is as 'I'm going to bust my tail.' And he has busted his tail for a long time."
