The Memphis Grizzlies are now only one or two real moves from being a playoff contender, and with little in tradeable assets, are there any free agents on the market that could help the Grizzlies?
The Memphis Grizzlies finally relented to a full-scale rebuild during the 2018-19 season, and that meant sacrificing all of their potential assets in return for draft picks, which eventually turned into Ja Morant and Brandon Clarke.
Although those picks will inevitably help the Grizzlies in their goal of getting back to the playoffs, they weren’t the final pieces though, and now the Grizzlies are low on valuable assets in the trade market.
Outside of Andre Iguodala, the Grizzlies don’t have anyone who they are willing to trade, who’d provide some serious benefit to a team in search of a playoff entry. Solomon Hill, Grayson Allen, and Kyle Anderson are all nice pieces, but they aren’t finishing touches to a contending team.
Because of this, Memphis may have to turn to the free agent market to find their next big piece. And although the big offseason of 2019 didn’t leave much in terms of recognizable players left behind, but there are a few players who could be key for the Grizzlies’ rotation.
