Hamed Hadadi: I’ll Join Memphis Grizzlies Next Week

Hamed Hadadi: I'll Join Memphis Grizzlies Next WeekIranian iconic basketball player Hamed Hadadi has hit out at NBA legal counsel over the recent remarks that he is not allowed to join American teams.


Hadadi said, "I will undoubtedly join Memphis Grizzlies by the end of next week. I met Memphis’ officials yesterday to discuss joining the team."

According to NBA rules, foreign players have to legally wait for their work permit and it takes time, he added.

"I received many offers from European teams but just playing in the NBA is my dream. Hopefully, I can join Memphis as soon as possible without any problem." 7-foot-2 Iranian Olympian Hamed Hadadi said.
