Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Positional Previews by joelapinski on Thursday 15 September 2016 at 6:51 pm

The Memphis Grizzlies have high hopes at point guard for the 2016-17 season.  It all starts with 28-year old Mike Conley, who the Grizzlies made the highest paid player in the NBA over the summer.  Conley played in 56 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 31.4 minutes, 15.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game.  Conley has now played in 637 games (608 starts) in his first 9 years with the Grizzlies and he is averaging 32.5 minutes, 13.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  He has also played in 50 games (all starts) in the playoffs for the Grizzlies in which he is averaging 37.4 minutes, 15.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  Conley is already the Grizzlies’ all-time leader in games played (637), assists (3,578) and steals (963)!  He is also #2 in three pointers made (736), #9 in defensive rebounds (1,551) and he is #2 in points (8,635) in Grizzlies’ history!

The Memphis Grizzlies selected 20-year old point guard Wade Baldwin in the first round (#17 overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.  He will be Conley’s caddy at the point for the foreseeable future.

21-year old Andrew Harrison spent his first year as a professional basketball player in the D-League in 2015-16.  He played in 46 games (45 starts) for the Iowa Energy in 2015-16 and he averaged 35.3 minutes, 18.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
