Second-rounders the Grizzlies should pursue

Should the Grizzlies not trade or buy into the first-round – which is something I feel they should seriously consider doing – we will be left with three second-round draft picks.

In case you were wondering how the hell we wound up with three:

Their first-round pick went to Minnesota via Houston and Memphis received an additional second-rounder from Toronto in the Rudy Gay deal. Memphis received a second-rounder along with Dexter Pitman from Miami for the rights to Ricky Sanchez as well.

That said, here’s a look at a few of the draft prospects I feel we should consider. And you’ll notice few of them are guards. Most of this will hinge on what Tony Wroten has been able to show thus-far this summer.

I would type up a fancy profile for each player, but let’s be honest here – you don’t want to take the time to read that and I don’t want to take the time to type it.

So instead, videos!  Might as well let their game do the talking.

You’ll notice a theme here, and it’s shooting. For obvious reasons.

Who do you think the Grizz should draft in the second-round, why? Sound of in the comment section and let us know.
