About Hamed Hadadi Hamed E. Haddadi (Persian: حامد حدادی, born May 19, 1985 in Ahvaz) is an Iranian professional basketball player with the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association. He plays at the center position and is 2.18 m (7'2") in height and 280 lbs in weight. Haddadi is the first Iranian to play in the NBA and is the second to play professional basketball in the United States after Behdad Sami.Haddadi received offers from NBA teams prior to the 2008 Summer Olympics and stated he would sign with a team after the games. Complications existed because of legal restrictions regarding business dealings between U.S. companies and Iranian citizens. On August 28, 2008, Haddadi signed with the NBA club the Memphis Grizzlies as a free-agent. Haddadi scored four points in 17 minutes of action in his first NBA preseason game, an October 7, 2008 loss at the Houston Rockets. Haddadi averaged 1.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 9.7 minutes in six preseason games with the Grizzlies, and made his regular season debut on December 30, when he played 4 minutes in a loss against the Phoenix Suns, hitting both of his free throws and grabbing one rebound. He was assigned to the Dakota Wizards of the NBA Development League (D-League) between November and December 2008. On November 25, 2008, Memphis assigned Haddadi to the Dakota Wizards of the NBA D-League. On Tuesday, December 23, Haddadi was recalled by the Grizzlies. Haddadi scored a career-high 10 points, with 8 rebounds and a block in less than 10 minutes to key a 12–0 run in the 4th quarter, sparking the Grizzlies to a come-from-behind victory at the Golden State Warriors on March 30, 2009. Despite receiving offers from European teams such as the Spanish League club FC Barcelona, it is likely that Haddadi will extend his contract until 2013 with the Grizzlies.
