Though the season for the Memphis Grizzlies has been over for quite some time now, with the NBA Finals officially in the rearview all teams across the league are finally free to close the book on this past campaign and look onward to the potential for future greatness.

Along with free agency, one of the most crucial aspects of the offseason will be occurring soon with the 2024 NBA Draft.

Despite not having the glitz and glam of previous classes, this year's festivities serve as an opportunity for teams such as Memphis to stock up on young talent and explore the potential of adding high-level collegiate or international players to the club.

Holding the ninth overall pick, the Grizzlies will have a fair chance at a majority of this year's prospects, as there is debate as to how the top picks will end up playing out. However, it's reasonable to assume that several big-ticket names will already be off the board when the organization gets its turn.

Essentially an extension of free agency, Memphis will have important decisions when it relates to how they'll ultimately choose to address a potential bench unit, where they want to direct their attention, and whether or not they'll opt to invest in another full-time center to run with a starting unit.

Where they decide to invest via the draft will also have direct implications on how they approach free agency, as there will still be issues that need addressing with players on the free market and trade block.

While there may be a clear hierarchy when it comes to Zach Kleiman and co.'s draft wish-list, there must always be back-up plans in place. Should they lose out on a pursuit of some of their top-ranked prospects, likely to be available around the ninth overall pick are quite a number of players who could have serious upside at the next level.
