Haddadi to extend with Memphis

TEHRAN - Memphis Grizzlies’ center Hamed Haddadi returned to Iran after his team did not qualify for the post-season tournament.


Haddadi will soon join Iran basketball team in preparation for the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

Haddadi is on vacation because he had a hard season in the Grizzlies. He will join us in a few days,” said manager of Iran’s national basketball team Mohammad-Reza Mashhoun.

Haddadi will play a big role in the 2010 FIBA World Championship which will be held in Turkey from August 28 to September 12.

The 7-foot-2 (2.19 meters) basketball player joined the NBA club Memphis Grizzlies as a free-agent on August 28, 2008. Despite receiving offers from European teams such as the Spanish League club FC Barcelona it is most likely that Haddadi will go on and extend his contract with the Grizzlies until 2013
