Mario Hezonja and Marko Guduric are not and will not be in camp with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian.

The two players remain on the roster for now, but barring trades, a buyout for both before the roster cut-down deadline reportedly looks likely.

The Grizzlies currently have 17 players on guaranteed contracts and must trim that number down to 15 before the regular season starts on Dec. 22.

Hezonja, 25, averaged 4.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in 53 games (16.4 minutes per game) for the Portland Trail Blazers last season.

He was traded to the Grizzlies in a three-team deal on Nov. 20 that also sent Enes Kanter from the Boston Celtics to the Trail Blazers.

Guduric, 25, averaged 3.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game in 44 games (11.0 minutes per game) for the Grizzlies last season.
