Though he may have only suited up for nine games this year and is currently sidelined for the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery, Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant still finds himself drawing a significant amount of attention from fans and pundits alike.

Recently, the point guard was caught sending subliminal messages regarding a player he may be hoping GM Zach Kleiman will pursue during this summer's free agency period, as users on X (formerly Twitter) spotted him reposting and, soon after, deleting a post hyping up the possibility of Brooklyn Nets center Nic Claxton signing with the franchise this coming offseason.

Ja Morant drops another hint of interest in Grizzlies signing Nic Claxton

To many, this act is a clear sign from Morant that he covets a reunion with his former AAU teammate, with one user analyzing the repost as a sign that "Ja Morant wouldn’t mind a new piece in the roster."

Another user poked fun at Morant and reigning AP Women's College Basketball Player of the Year and Iowa State phenom Caitlin Clark, who recently was seen liking a post by WNBA team, the Indiana Fever, who own the number one pick in the upcoming 2024 draft.

Now, this isn't the first time the Grizzlies star has seemingly dropped hints of interest in seeing Claxton heading to the 38103 for next season, as he was also seen liking a post praising the impending free agent earlier last month.

Interestingly enough, the Nets big hasn't seemed to quell any buzz about possible interest from his own camp with his actions of late either, as he dropped a short yet noteworthy comment regarding the idea of teaming up with Morant following Brooklyn's recent bout against Memphis.

The fourth-year pro is viewed as a player who could add some much needed size and rim protecting skills to the pivot spot for the Grizzlies and, at just 24 years old, could be tabbed as the long-term successor top the recently departed Steven Adams at the position if acquired.

Through 49 games played, the center is posting impressive averages of 11.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 2.1 blocks while shooting 62.0 percent from the field.
