1. Luke Kennard

The team's decision to cut ties with Steven Adams seemed to have served as an indicator that the Grizzlies are interested in cutting down on their salary commitments ahead of the 2024 offseason.

Should this be the case, considering his $14.7 million salary for 2024-25 ranks as the fourth-highest on the team's payroll, trading Luke Kennard could prove to be the next financially-driven move this front office could make and, considering his impressive skill set, it likely wouldn't be all that hard to find a suitor for his services come the summer months.

One of the game's best perimeter shooters, since 2018-19 the 27-year-old boasts impressive averages of 10.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists while cashing in on 45.6 percent of his shots from the floor and 44.1 percent of his attempts from distance.

Leading up to the deadline, Kennard was revealed to be "a player rival teams are keeping an eye on" in a report by HoopsHypes Michael Scotto.

Though, ultimately, he stayed put in the 38103, as is generally the case the offseason is when most trades tend to happen and, as a result, these aforementioned rival teams just might find themselves dialing up Zach Kleiman and company yet again to inquire about his availability.
