1. Reggie Bullock

Before the season even started, after being bought out by the San Antonio Spurs Reggie Bullock was tabbed as an ideal player the Grizzlies should look to add to their roster, as he's an individual who provides proven defensive intangibles and floor-spacing abilities all while playing out on the wing, thus filling a grueling vacancy within the rotation.

Unfortunately, soon after becoming available on the open market, the Houston Rockets swooped in and snatched the veteran up on a minimum $3.1 million deal which, at the time, dashed all hope of a potential union between him and Memphis.

Fast forward nearly a month into the season, however, and we find Bullock seemingly serving as a mere dust collector on the sidelines, as he's seen action on just five separate occasions and has logged a lowly 10.4 minutes per game.

With this, it may be a sign that, for the right price, the Rockets could be more than willing to offload the forward, and Kleiman and co. should try to figure out what said price might be.

An established 3-and-D role player with over a decade of experience in the association, for his career Bullock averages of 7.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game on 38.4 percent shooting from distance and, over the last four coming in, posted 8.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists, 38.4 percent shooting from deep.

Being he finds himself coming off a season where he averaged 7.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists while shooting 38.0 percent from deep in 30.3 minutes a night, it's rather odd that he hasn't been utilized more often in Space City.

Perhaps a move to the 38103 could help benefit all parties involved.
