When you think of 2021 offseason trades, the first team that will pop into your head is the Memphis Grizzlies, who have now made a total of six trades. It hasn’t netted them much for the immediate future, though.

Generally speaking, free agents aren’t attracted to small-market teams like Memphis. Because of this, the Grizzlies have been stockpiling draft picks (they have three first-rounders in 2021) and players that fill their roster.
