Barnes says he fits Grizzlies' 'Grit & Grind' approach

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Matt Barnes believes he epitomizes the "Grit & Grind" style that the Memphis Grizzlies have prided themselves on for years.

Now that the Grizzlies have acquired him, the veteran forward is eager to continue playing that brand of basketball while winning over a fan base that had grown accustomed to cheering against him.

"This is a whole - not just team but city - with my ideal, a grind mentality," Barnes said Tuesday. "I've been on teams that run-and-gun and dunk and shoot a lot of 3's, but I've never been on a team that everyone has the same mindset I do. That's very exciting from a player's standpoint."
