The Grizzlies took another step Sunday toward solidifying their frontcourt,agreeing to terms with forward Darrell Arthur on a three-year contract worth just over $9 million,according to a source familiar with the agreement.

Memphis tendered qualifying offers to Arthur and fellow forward Marreese Speights,both restricted free agents,in late June. The Grizzlies came to terms late last week with Speights,agreeing to pay him nearly $9 million over two years.

The third year of Arthur’s deal is a player option.
