MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -The Memphis Grizzlies signed free agent guard-forward Casey Jacobsen on Tuesday, marking his return to the NBA after playing two seasons in Europe.
Jacobsen spent last season in Germany with the Brose Baskets, who won the 2007 German Basketball Championship. He was named MVP of the finals.
He spent the 2005-06 season with TAU Victoria of the Spanish ACB League, before joining the Rockets last preseason, when he averaged 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in four games.
``We are pleased that Casey is coming to resume his NBA career in Memphis,'' general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement. ``Casey brings much needed outside shooting to the team. He also provides size in the backcourt.''
Jacobsen averaged 5.9 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 20.4 minutes in 234 games played with Phoenix and New Orleans in his three years in the NBA.
He was first drafted by Phoenix before the 2003-04 season, when he ranked ninth in the NBA in 3-point percentage (75-180, .417).
At Stanford, he ranks third on the school's career scoring list with 1,723 points.
