The Memphis Grizzlies have been rather quiet during these early stages of the 2024 NBA Free Agency period, but this is not to say that they'll remain dormant forever.

Despite the fact that they are slated to get cornerstone stars Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Desmond Bane all back to full strength next season following an injury-plagued 2023-24 campaign, Taylor Jenkins' rotation still has quite a few weaknesses present within it that, with strategic maneuvering from Zach Kleiman this summer, could be bolstered in time for October's season tip-off.

To many, one of these said weaknesses reside within their frontcourt, for it is believed that outside of Trip-J, the collection of talent in this area of the depth chart is both unproven and/ or lacking in upside.

Because of this, a popular belief is that the club's front office should look to address this lackluster makeup, and some have suggested the idea of pursuing Charlotte Hornets free agent forward, Miles Bridges.

Grizzlies believed to be a plausible landing spot for Miles Bridges

From Swarm and Sting's Jack Simone labeling them as a club that could "steal" the forward out of Charlotte, to FanNation's Schuyler Callihan declaring them to be one of the "best fits" for his services, the Grizzlies are surprisingly being looked at as a theoretical destination for the talented, albeit polarizing forward.

While there may be a few valid reasons why his addition to Grind City's current core could be of intrigue to the franchise, there appear to be many more that should have them steer clear of a pursuit this offseason.
