Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace said he would not have pulled the trigger on Wednesday's trade if he didn't get Tayshaun Prince back.
The Grizzlies are apparently high on Prince's all-around offensive game and the upgrade he'll provide on Rudy Gay's defense. Expect him to start at small forward and push for 30 minutes nightly. Fantasy owners should note that Prince was getting 32.4 minutes per game in Detroit, but still managed just 11.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists. He will be available for Friday's game against the Wizards, as will Ed Davis and Austin Daye.
