Guard Dusty Hannahs, a Little Rock native who played at the University of Arkansas, has signed a 10-day contract with the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, the team announced Saturday.

Hannahs, 25, was called up from the G League Memphis Hustle, where he averaged 14.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 49 games this season while shooting a G League-leading 92.6 percent from the free-throw line.

Hannahs signed with Memphis as an undrafted free agent after helping Arkansas reach the NCAA Tournament as a senior during the 2016-17 season.
