Jaric permitted to find new team

Memphis Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric is expected to seek a contract buyout from the Grizzlies if a team willing to trade for Jaric can't be found, his agent said Monday.

The Grizzlies announced earlier Monday that they have given agent Bill Duffy permission to search for a new home for Jaric after the sides mutually agreed that the 30-year-old would not attend Memphis' training
camp in Birmingham, Ala, or play in preseason games.

The reality, though, is that securing a trade partner willing to take on the final two of years of Jaric's contract -- valued at nearly $15 million -- is highly unlikely at a time when so many teams are averse to taking
multiyear contracts and after Jaric barely played last season.

In 53 games, Jaric averaged just 2.6 points in 11.4 minutes per game and shot 33.1 percent from the field.
