Memphis Grizzlies: What did we learn from each rookie during preseason?
It’s surely been exciting watching the Memphis Grizzlies get back to action over the last few weeks as they fulfilled their preseason duties.
While the players shook off their offseason rust heading towards opening night, we got some of our biggest questions answered, like who would emerge as the starting power forward in the beginning of the season.
Those five games were also a chance for the rookies to test their talents against some real NBA competition, after a quite productive Summer League.
Let’s have a look on how they performed and what should we expect from them moving forward.
Vince Williams ready to get to work with the Memphis Hustle
Out of the five rookies, Vince Williams was the one that was used the least, as he only played 17 minutes in the first preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks and didn’t see any significant time in any other games.
Williams is currently on a two-way contract and will reportedly spend the majority of the season in the G-League and the Memphis Hustle.
While he will have to adjust to the deeper three-point line and quicker pace of the game, his shooting and basketball IQ could earn him a spot on the main roster.
The way the Grizzlies have used their two-way contracts in the past indicate that Vince should get some reps in the NBA and show us what he can do.
