Red Storm alum DJ Kennedy waived by Memphis Grizzlies

DJ Kennedy is again looking for work as he has been waived by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Former St. John's guard DJ Kennedy has been waived by the Memphis Grizzlies. The team confirmed the news via its own Twitter account on Wednesday.

Kennedy has been working to maintain a professional career after graduating from St. John's in 2011. After most of last season in the NBA Development League, Kennedy was signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers for the remaining two games of the season.

As he did with the Red Storm, Kennedy proved to NBA scouts in his short stint with the Cavs that he is capable of being a productive contributor at the pro level. He scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in one of his two games at the end of the season.

Kennedy's shot at the NBA was shifted to Memphis in July, when he was traded for Jeremy Pargo and a second round pick. It was believed that he'd get a chance to make head coach Lionel Hollins' roster, but the team is now looking to go into a different direction.

St. John's fans know well that Kennedy is a solid rebounder despite his size and moves well with the ball. If he continues to develop his skills, there is no reason to believe that he won't resurface with another NBA roster for training camps in early October.
