The Latest: Kyle Anderson officially with Grizzlies

By The Associated Press

The Latest on NBA Free Agency (all times EDT):

6:15 p.m.

Kyle Anderson's move to Memphis became official Monday.

Anderson is now a member of the Grizzlies, and their likely starting small forward. San Antonio had until midnight Sunday to match the Grizzlies' four-year, $37.2 million offer to Anderson, and declined.

Anderson averaged 7.9 points for the Spurs last season, in his first year as a full-time starting forward.

6 p.m.

The New Orleans Pelicans have signed free-agent guard Elfrid Payton and re-signed guard Ian Clark.

New Orleans announced the roster moves Monday along with the formal signing of former Lakers forward Julius Randle, who agreed last week to a two-year contract worth about $18 million. Payton and Clark each have signed for one year.

The 6-foot-4 Payton is a New Orleans native who played in college for Louisiana-Lafayette. He spent most of his four NBA seasons with Orlando before being traded to Phoenix last February and has averaged 11.2 points and 6.4 assists during his career. Payton now joins a back-court that also includes Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore.

Clark averaged 7.4 points in 20 minutes per game last season.

The 6-9 Randle, who averaged 16 points and eight rebounds with Los Angeles last season, joins a front-court featuring five-time All-Star and fellow former Kentucky player Anthony Davis.

    SEC Media Days means a lot of football talk, but nothing in terms of actual football on the field. The Tigers have seen where they stand on paper, but they're anxious to prove everyone wrong once the season starts.
