MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies have signed free agent Keyon Dooling, luring the veteran guard out of retirement to add more depth for the post-season.

The Grizzlies announced the deal Wednesday.

Dooling, 32, announced his retirement Sept. 20 after signing with the Boston Celtics on July 31. He has started 86 of his 721 games with the Clippers, Heat, Magic, Nets, Bucks and Celtics. He averages 7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists as a 41.5 per cent shooter, and Dooling played 46 games with two starts for Boston last season.

The 10th overall pick in 2000 by Orlando out of Missouri, Dooling also has made four previous trips to the post-season where he averaged 5.3 points and an assist shooting 45.4 per cent over 49 playoff games.
