The Memphis Grizzlies inked Mario Chalmers to a contract on Wednesday, a day after the guard indicated he was headed back to his old NBA team.

The Grizzlies did not reveal terms of the deal, but multiple media reports said Chalmers agreed to a one-year contract.

“Grit and grind” is the Grizzlies’ motto.
