Speights averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in 60 games last season after being acquired from Philadelphia in January.
Arthur missed the 2011-12 season because of a torn right Achilles. His career average is 6.9 points and 4.2 rebounds.
Memphis can now match any offer Speights or Arthur gets from another team.
