The Top 10 Draft Picks in Memphis Grizzlies History: Part II - The Final Five

The Top 10 Draft Picks in Memphis Grizzlies History: Part II - The Final Five

Time for the sad part. Did you miss part I? Get caught up here. Welcome back! Some reminders - Note that these are draft picks, not players. Zach Randolph, Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol...none of these guys will appear on this list because they were not DRAFTED by the Grizzlies. I am starting with 2001, also known as the first year of the MEMPHIS Grizzlies. Sorry Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Antonio Daniels, Steve Francis...you’re not on this list either. Notice that this isn’t top-10 1st round picks. 2nd round picks are eligible for consideration. Hasheem Thabeet is not allowed anywhere near this...

Now, before we begin, some notes - Note that these are draft picks, not players. Zach Randolph, Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol...none of these guys will appear on this list because they were not DRAFTED by the Grizzlies. I am starting with 2001, also known as the first year...

The magnitude of now for Memphis

No pressure. The year is 2021. Luka Doncic is driving to FedExForum for opening night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He is coming off a first-round playoff exit at the hands of James Harden and his 1-seed Houston Rockets, and the Grizzlies have spent the summer trying to figure out how to surround new talent around Doncic. Free agency continues to be an issue for Memphis, and while the Grizzlies did use their 2020 and 2021 first round picks on players meant to replace the recently gone Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, the team is far too young to be a true contender. The lottery is another...
