Grizzlies keeping tabs on Warriors' Dampier
Memphis Commercial Appeal
The New York Post reported recently that Memphis and Atlanta had a pre-arranged deal. Atlanta would sign Dampier and trade him to Memphis in December

Dampier should he perform better than expected. It is believed that the Griz were close to orchestrating a three-team trade last week.
