Report: Grizzlies decline SG Luke Kennard’s $14.8 million option

luke kennard

The Memphis Grizzlies declined Luke Kennard’s $14.8 million option for next season, ESPN reported Saturday.

The decision makes Kennard a free agent, though it is possible the shooting guard and the Grizzlies could work out a new deal.

Kennard, 28, has made 48.3 percent of his 3-point attempts and averaged 11.1 points in 63 games over parts of two seasons with Memphis.

Last season, Kennard was limited to 39 games (22 starts) due to various injuries. He averaged 11.0 points, 3.5 assists and shot 45 percent from 3-point range.

Kennard has played in 395 games (110 starts) over seven seasons for the Detroit Pistons (2017-20), Los Angeles Clippers (2020-23) and Memphis. The Grizzlies acquired him from the Clippers at the trade deadline in February 2023.

He has career averages of 10.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists while shooting 43.9 percent from behind the arc.

Kennard was the 12th overall pick by the Pistons in the 2017 draft out of Duke.
