The Memphis Grizzlies may have just managed to claim their first win of 2023-24 during Sunday evening’s bout against the Portland Trail Blazers, but they are still miles away from what they were expected to be heading into the year.
Kicking things off with the worst start to a regular season since the 2018-19 Cleveland Cavaliers, Taylor Jenkins’ squad boasts a putrid 1-6 record through seven games played and, with key contributors such as Ja Morant (suspension), Steven Adams (knee), and Brandon Clarke (Achilles) sidelined for both the short and long-term it’s evident that they could use some extra help in an attempt to climb out of this rut.
Trade targets that could make immediate impacts on the Memphis Grizzlies
Over the past several months the Grizzlies have found their names attached to a number of different trade rumors, many of which involved the possibility of intriguing players coming out to the 38103.
With how things currently appear to be shaping up, before things get completely out of hand perhaps now may be an opportune time for GM Zach Kleiman and company to scour the market to see what players could be available for the taking.
Looking across the association there are a plethora of ballers out there who could prove to be great additions to this main rotation and, in turn, help guide them closer to their title-hopeful status.
In specific, there are a couple of players who could go on to make immediate impacts in the hypothetical scenario that they’re acquired by the Grizzlies at some point this season.
