According to RealGM's Shams Charania, Luke Hancock's dream of playing in the NBA may be closer than it's ever been before.
Luke Hancock -- NCAA champion at Louisville -- has agreed to a 1-year, minimum deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources tell RealGM.

Considering the fact that the Grizzlies already have 14 players on their current roster with guaranteed contracts, it's likely that Hancock's deal is non-guaranteed. Still, he'll camp with the Grizzlies and get another shot to turn some serious heads.
If Hancock does wind up making a roster, he'll be one of the least-surprised people in the basketball world.
"I'm going to make the NBA," Hancock told ESPN 680's Drew Deene back in July. "I can play. I just need to be able to guard two guards and three men in the NBA. They're fast. They're athletic, so I've got a lot of work to do."
