After almost making the playoffs, the Memphis Grizzlies can bolster their backcourt and add much-needed shooters on the 2020 NBA free agency market.

The Memphis Grizzlies can look to add some depth to their roster at the shooting guard position through free agency.

Currently on the roster at this position the Grizzlies have Dillion Brooks, Grayson Allen and Marko Guduric (who only played in 44 games and averaged less than one minute per game).

Brooks established himself as a capable two-way player. Brooks also showed his improved scoring prowess in his third year as his points per game rose from seven to 17. Brooks also brings a toughness to the floor each night.

Grayson Allen also showed some promise in the second season of his young career. Allen shot almost 41 percent from the 3-point line this season, which was a major improvement from his rookie year.

Brooks is a more developed three-level scorer and physical defender, while Allen has a role of being a spot up shooter and creating off the dribble. Some skill sets that the Grizzlies could target in this free agency class to upgrade at this position would be to find some more shooting and someone who can create more offense alongside point guards Ja Morant and Tyus Jones.
