In just a few days, the Memphis Grizzlies will finally get their franchise cornerstone Ja Morant back from his league-issued 25-game suspension, thus sparking enthusiasm amongst many fans and media pundits alike that hope is far from lost for this downtrodden tribe.

However, at 6-17 and seven wins behind the eighth-seeded Clippers, it's a plausible assumption that regardless of how talented their superstar point guard is Taylor Jenkins' squad may need more than just one player to successfully climb out of the cellars of the Western Conference and get back into the playoff contender conversation.

In order to get that much-needed added boost, a popular suggestion has been for GM Zach Kleiman to scour the market for potentially available outsourced talents and, with December 15, the unofficial start date of trade season, nearly here there will likely be a bevy of possible candidates this front office should consider pursuing.
