Figuring out the Grizzlies roster cuts

Figuring out the Grizzlies roster cuts

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Grizzlies have some big decisions to make prior to the start of the season With training camp behind the team and two preseason games in, fans and the Grizzlies front office have gotten a good early look at what their team will look like for the upcoming season. For the most part, the past couple weeks have been about guys fighting for their spot in the Grizzlies rotation, or even the starting lineup. For others, though, they’ve been fighting just to make the Grizzlies roster. With the Grizzlies currently at the preseason maximum of 20 players...

Memphis Grizzlies 2019-20 Player Preview: Solomon Hill

Memphis Grizzlies 2019-20 Player Preview: Solomon Hill

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The 7-year veteran is looking for some consistency after two injury-riddled seasons. Can he bounce back in a contract year as a Grizzly? The Chandler Parsons era is over. Long live Solomon Hill. The Memphis Grizzlies traded away Parsons to the Hawks for Hill and Miles Plumlee. One large expiring contract and the animosity between Parsons and the Grizzlies are gone for flyers on two veteran pieces. The first of those pieces, Solomon Hill, has had an inconsistent career, and it has only been more up and down since signing a 4-year deal with the New...

Memphis Grizzlies 2019-20 Player Previews: Grayson Allen

Memphis Grizzlies 2019-20 Player Previews: Grayson Allen

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports The Godfather of Grit N Grimey? Is it a coincidence that players who play for Memphis with the last name Allen are ultra competitive, scrappy players, maybe even to a fault at times? Tripping people on the court...doesn’t that sound familiar with the last guy we had need Allen? Now Grayson maybe a little more excessive and unwarranted, but then he gives you the potential for a 40-point game! Grayson is nowhere near as mature as the other Allen, as the Duke alum comes with on-court meltdowns. Hate it or love it, it all makes for a great way to sum up the...

Photo by Michael J. LeBrecht II/NBAE via What is his role in the future? Kyle Anderson is about to enter his sixth year in the NBA. That level of experience on the newest iteration of the Memphis Grizzlies is veteran status.

Anderson brings a versatile skill set to the table along with a great basketball IQ that can be leveraged well as the Grizzlies experiment and fine-tune their winning formula. 2018 - 2019 OVERVIEW Prior to Anderson’s injuries, he...

Ja Morant dazzles in preseason battle against RJ Hampton

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Ja Morant outshines 2020 lottery prospect RJ Hampton Preseason games on Tuesday nights aren’t supposed to be highly anticipated. The overall play is sloppy, the stars are on limited minutes, and it’s a lot of fringe players looking to show they belong in the league. This preseason exhibition in Memphis had a different vibe though. Many NBA scouts and executives were already in town for the University of Memphis Pro Day, but they were also there to get a look at New Zealand Breakers point guard RJ Hampton. Once classified in the Class of 2020, Hampton...

Humble Marko Guduric ready to compete

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports The Grizzlies’ newest international signing looking to prove he’s more than a 3-point shooter. Marko Guduric isn’t a known commodity. The thing people know him for is his 3-point shooting, but he’s much more than just a 3-point specialist. At last week’s media day, Memphis Grizzlies Executive VP of Basketball Operations Zach Kleiman said the following of the Serbian swingman. He can put the ball on the floor. He can play-make a little bit. He’s a good team defender. He’s a high-IQ player, [and] in general, we’re really trying to prioritize...

Turning Up the Tempo and Letting It Fly with New Coaching Staff

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via Fast-pace and three-point shooting define the new staff The 2019-20 Memphis Grizzlies will not only feature a multitude of new players, but also an almost entirely new coaching staff. From the head coach down to the last player on the bench, fans inside FedEx Forum will need time to match faces with the names. It is only natural, then, to wonder what style of play will emerge from this fresh collection. Sure, they’ve said that it will be a fast-paced style, but doesn’t everybody make that claim now?

Memphis Grizzlies newcomer Josh Jackson is taking a different approach in year three with his second NBA team. The Josh Jackson that was taken with the number four pick in the 2017 NBA draft is a thing of the past, and the Grizzlies are partnering with Jackson to save his NBA career. Saving players careers is something that isn’t new to Memphis, and the Grizzlies organization. The Grit N’ Grind Era was started around Zach Randolph who saved his career in Memphis....

Five takeaways from Grizzlies preseason debut

Five takeaways from Grizzlies preseason debut

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via What can you possibly learn from the first preseason game? Well... In front of a...sparse...home crowd on a Sunday afternoon, the Memphis Grizzlies tipped off their preseason against Maccabi Haifa from Israel. It was a successful outing - 123-88 is a good start, regardless of opponent or crowd size. Yet perspective is necessary - when James Young, a former NBA player who last played in the NBA in March of 2018 (ironically against the Grizzlies) and is fighting to get back in the Association, is your best player you are probably going to lose most...

Memphis Grizzlies 2019-2020 Player Previews: Jae Crowder

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports The 7 year forward has embraced his trade to Memphis, but is he long for the team? Jae Crowder was a perfect fit for the Grit-n-Grind Grizzlies. It’s a shame the Grizzlies acquired Crowder in the trade that *officially* ended the Grit-n-Grind era. Regardless, Jae Crowder will quickly become a fan favorite in Memphis once the 2019-2020 campaign kicks off. His hard-nosed, defense-first mentality will be welcomed by Grizz Nation, and his veteran leadership will be helpful on such a young Grizzlies roster. It’s also helpful that Crowder has fully embraced...

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports If you have ever been around teenagers, or college students, you know pretty well there is a universal truth surrounding just about all of them. They’re “dumb”. “Dumb” does not necessarily mean that they lack intelligence, and it isn’t even really a bad thing. There are plenty of brilliant young minds out there that should give our world hope for a better tomorrow.
