Four different teams owned the rights to Darrell Arthur, who ultimately wound up with the Memphis Grizzlies

June 27, 2008


The first couple of hours of Thursday night's NBA draft, nobody wanted him.

And then everybody wanted him.

Arthur, because of concerns about the fitness of his kidney, lasted until the 27th pick of the first round.

By the time all the transactions were done, four different teams owned the rights to Arthur at one point or another.

The New Orleans Hornets selected him and then traded him to the Portland Trailblazers, who dealt him to the Houston Rockets, who sent him to the Memphis Grizzlies for Syracuse forward Donte Greene, orignially selected one pick behind Arthur.
