The Memphis Grizzlies picked Josh Selby in the 2nd round of the 2011 NBA Draft

The Grizzlies picked 20-year old, 6’2″, 183 pound shooting guard Josh Selby with the 49th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.  Selby didn’t play too well in his only year in college.  He played in 26 games for Kansas last year and he averaged 20.4 minutes, 7.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.  Selby only shot 37.3% from the floor last year.  The Grizzlies have a lot of players ahead of Selby at shooting guard, so they should be able to bring him along slowly.

I could see the Memphis Grizzlies trying to trade into the first round on Thursday

The Memphis Grizzlies might be looking to deal into the first round of the NBA Draft this Thursday.  The Cavaliers are trying to pry Rudy Gay away from the Grizzlies but I don’t think that’s going to work.  I could see the Grizzlies trying to trade into the middle to late first round of the NBA Draft using their #49 pick along with SG O.J. Mayo.  Of the teams at the end of the first round, the Bulls make the most sense.  If the Grizzlies could sweeten the pot a little bit though, they might start to interest the Knicks who are looking for a SG right now.  If the Grizzlies stay pat, I look for them to draft the best available player regardless of position.

The Memphis Grizzlies have five free agents heading into this off-season

Blogged under Big Grizzlies News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by admin on Monday 20 June 2011 at 1:12 am

The Grizzlies have five free agents coming into this off-season, so some tough choices are going to have to be made.  If all starts with center Marc Gasol, who is a restricted free agent.  Gasol and Nene’ are the best two free agent centers on the market this summer, so the Grizzlies are going to have to ante’ up if they want to keep him in the fold.  They should bite the bullet and match any offer for Gasol, as the Grizzlies are a team on the rise.  The Grizzlies have a team option on SG/SF Sam Young and they should pick that up as he has been outperforming his contract.  SF Shane Battier will likely be allowed to leave as the Grizzlies are going to have a really high payroff if they bring almost everyone back in 2011-12.  PF Leon Powe will likely also be leaving Memphis unless he’s willing to work cheap.  Center Hamed Haddadi is a restricted free agent and I think the Grizzlies will let him go as he doesn’t appear to like Memphis too much.
