As the dust settles on another season of transition for the Memphis Grizzlies, Beale Street Bears hands out some grades in key areas.

While the NBA Playoffs cruise along toward a (likely) Golden State Warriors three-peat, the teams left in their wake must pick up the pieces. One such team are the Memphis Grizzlies, banished to the NBA Draft Lottery again after a near-decade of scrappy success and playoff runs.

A probably-needed housecleaning of their bench and front office has more or less closed the book on the Grizzlies’ 2018-19 season. Now come the next steps — namely finding a head coach, and the fateful NBA Draft Lottery.

Before we get to the Memphis Grizzlies’ prospects for success or failure in the official offseason, allow us to take a look back at how this season played out with the following Grizzlies Report Card.

We will be grading the Memphis Grizzlies’ overall performance in a few pivotal areas:

  • On-Court Performance
  • Asset Management
  • Player Development
  • Organizational Culture
  • Cap Management

With the franchise stuck in the early stages of a rebuild — but not completely rudderless — this year’s grades are a bit of a mixed bag. Join Beale Street Bears as we break down the report card, and see why Chris Wallace is already grounded.
