Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - The Memphis Grizzlies signed guard Jerryd Bayless to a multi-year contract on Friday.

The 23-year-old Bayless averaged a career-high 11.4 points in 31 games last season with the Toronto Raptors. He also set a personal best for three-point shooting at 42.3 percent.

"We are pleased to add Jerryd Bayless to our team," Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said. "He is a rapidly-improving young player who is coming off his best season in the NBA. Jerryd will address two areas of need: three- point shooting and backup point guard play. He is a very hard-working player whose best days as a professional are ahead of him."

The Arizona product has averaged 8.1 points, 2.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 229 career games (36 starts) with Portland, New Orleans and Toronto.

Memphis also signed draft pick Tony Wroten. The 6-foot-6 Wroten was selected by the Grizzlies with the 25th overall pick in last month's NBA Draft.

In his lone collegiate season at the University of Washington, he averaged 16.0 points and 3.7 assists.
