With just a week to go until the February 8 trade deadline comes about, there still appears to be no strong indication as to what the Memphis Grizzlies plan to do.

Considering they boast the third-worst record in the Western Conference standings at 18-29 and look to be playing for the lottery, many believe the franchise should stand pat or, at most, sell off some of their lesser-valued players for more future-oriented assets.

However, being they possess several luxuries such as the Dillon Brooks TPE and their two recently attained DPEs, there's a rather realistic possibility that the front office could look to add on some fresh new faces ahead of next week's cut-off.

Sleeper trade targets the Memphis Grizzlies must consider pursuing

Should Memphis opt to embark down this latter route, there are quite a number of names they should consider pursuing in a trade, with a few, in particular, that may be going under the radar when it comes to the possible impact they could provide if attained.

3. Quentin Grimes

Though the Grizzlies may already have several quality backcourt talents at their disposal, the concept of bolstering their depth even further with a guy like Quentin Grimes is still rather appealing, and reports indicate that they, too, are open to such an idea.

A highly efficient combo guard, the 23-year-old has established himself as a quality young talent who can make an impact on both ends of the floor. Throughout his three seasons in the association, Grimes boasts averages of 8.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and just shy of a steal while shooting 37.9 percent from distance.

Adding a talent like Grimes into the mix would not only provide the Grizzlies with a much-needed jolt of energy to help improve their fifth-worst offensive bench unit this season but they would simultaneously be bringing on a player who could become a key member of their core moving forward.
