MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies say they have signed Hamed Haddadi to a new undisclosed deal.

The 27-year-old center averaged 2 points, 2 rebounds and .74 blocks in 5.9 minutes in 35 games for Memphis last season. He also made four appearances for the Grizzlies in the 2012 playoff run.

Haddadi is the first Iranian to ever play in the NBA. A native of Ahvaz, Iran, Haddadi owns NBA career averages of 2.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 6.1 minutes in 121 games in four seasons, all with the Grizzlies.
