Through nearly two weeks of action, the Memphis Grizzlies find themselves branded as the last remaining winless team in the association with a hapless record of 0-5.
While the majority of their bouts have proven to be rather close, their latest showing against the Utah Jazz was by far the worst of the season as they were blown out by a final score of 133-109.
Coming into the year, it was expected that things may be tough for Taylor Jenkins’ squad early on what with the fact that they’d be without Ja Morant for the first 25 games due to suspension and Steven Adams who just days before October 25’s opening tip-off against the Pelicans was reported as being shelved for the entirety of the campaign as he undergoes knee surgery.
However, five games in things appear to be worse than anticipated and, as a result, both fans and media pundits alike are calling for the club to make some sort of shakeup before things get too out of hand, with a popular course of action oft-discussed being to find a deal to execute on the trade market.
Memphis Grizzlies players that could be traded following 0-5 start to season
Even though the Grizzlies may have a TPE at their disposal, assuming the front office would want to add some sort of serious difference-maker to their arsenal in some sort of trade, they’ll likely need to open up more than the roughly $7 million allotted to them with said luxury.
As a result, along with draft capital Memphis would need to cough up a few existing contracts in such an exchange, and, should this happen, there are a few names, in particular, that could be sent outbound as part of some sort of package.
