1. Luke Kennard

If the Steven Adams trade told us anything, it's that the Grizzlies are mightily interested in cutting down on their salary commitments ahead of the 2024 offseason.

With his $14.7 million pay day next season, Luke Kennard is now slated to be the fourth-highest earner on the team behind their top-trio of Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, and Jaren Jackson Jr. as well as highly valued veteran guard, Marcus Smart.

Finding a way to offload this financial burden could be one of the front office's main objectives heading into Thursday's cutoff, which means the sharpshooting two-guard very well may have already played his last game in navy, blue, and gold threads.

One of the game's premier snipers from beyond the arc, for his career the 27-year-old boasts a stellar three-point shooting clip of 43.8 percent and, since arriving in Memphis at last year's deadline, has brought this mark up to a whopping 49.3 percent while tacking on 10.9 points per game over this period.

Like Konchar, Kennard has been a name often mentioned within the trade rumor mill as being a player contenders may like to add to their roster ahead of what is hoped to be a deep playoff run.

Though finding a suitor may be a bit more challenging considering his salary, there likely won't be any shortage of teams vying for his services.
