1. Andre Drummond

Speaking of behemoths, if the Grizzlies wish to get both a tantalizing center onto their roster as well as veteran experience within their locker room, perhaps the best bang for their buck may come in the form of big man Andre Drummond.

Throughout this season the 30-year-old has been a player frequently tabbed as an interesting option to fill Memphis' starting center position and it's easy to see why.

Boasting a skill set highly reminiscent of that of their beloved franchise big Steven Adams, Drummond is a board gobbler extraordinaire, pulling down 12.4 rebounds per game for his career (4.2 on the offensive end) while adding in 12.7 points, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks a night.

This past season, despite seeing sub-20 minutes for just the third time in his 12-year career, he still proved to be highly productive for the Chicago Bulls, wrapping up the year with 8.4 points, 9.0 rebounds (3.4 offensive), and over half a block on 55.6 percent shooting.

Along with his on-court production, Drummond is a two-time All-Star and All-NBA selectee who has experience playing for title-contending clubs such as the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.

Add all this to the fact that he measures in at a mesmerizing 6-foot-11, 280 pounds and there seems to be no real reason why the Grizzlies shouldn't be beelining it to sign the veteran big this coming summer.
