The Memphis Grizzlies are giving a lot of work to a couple of their rookies in 2016-17

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Thursday 10 November 2016 at 9:21 pm

22-year old shooting guard Andrew Harrison and 20-year old point guard Wade Baldwin are both getting a lot of P.T. so far this year for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Harrison has played in 7 games (2 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 24.4 minutes, 6.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game.  But, he is only shooting 30% from the floor, 21.1% from three point range and 72.7% from the free throw line so far this year and he will have to shoot better than that if he wants to stay in the Grizzlies’ playing rotation.  Baldwin has played in 6 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 20.8 minutes, 4.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game.  Baldwin is only shooting 28.6% from the floor, 25% from three point range and 100% from the free throw line so far this year.  Baldwin was the Grizzlies’ first round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, but he is going to have to shoot better to keep getting consistent minutes.  19-year old center Deyonta Davis has looked solid so far this year.  He has played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 6.8 minutes, 3.4 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.  He is shooting 87.5% from the floor, but only 60% from the free throw line so far this year.  21-year old small forward Troy Williams has played in 5 games (1 start) so far this year and he is averaging 9.8 minutes, 3.4 points, 0.4 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.  He is shooting 45.5% from the floor, 25% from three point range and 66.7% from the free throw line so far this year.

The Memphis Grizzlies are getting solid work from their rookies lately

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Wednesday 16 March 2016 at 6:40 pm

21-year old power forward Jarell Martin, 23-year old point guard Briante Weber and 28-year old power forward Alex Stephenson are getting minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies due to widespread injuries and they have been stepping up so far.  Martin has played in 12 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.9 minutes, 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.  But, in his last four games, Martin is averaging 23.3 minutes, 12.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.  Weber has stepped right into the starting lineup.  Weber has played in 3 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 35.3 minutes, 5.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game.  It’s not all rosy for Weber, as he is only shooting 31.6% from the floor so far for the Grizzlies.  Stephenson has played in 2 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies since recently signing with them and he is averaging 22.0 minutes, 8.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 blocked shot per game.  The opportunity is going to be there for these guys, so the Grizzlies need them to keep playing well.

Tony Wroten didn’t get a chance to play much for the Memphis Grizzlies last year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Thursday 30 May 2013 at 3:31 am

20-year old shooting guard Tony Wroten didn’t get a chance to play much for the Grizzlies last year.  Wroten played in 35 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 7.8 minutes, 2.6 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.  Wroten only shot 38.4% from the floor, 25% from three point range and 72.4% from the free throw line last year.  In his 9 games in which he played at least 10 minutes last year, he averaged 16.6 minutes, 6.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.  Look for Wroten to see his P.T. start to increase in 2013-14.

The Memphis Grizzlies aren’t getting much production out of their rookies in 2012-13

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by joelapinski on Monday 4 March 2013 at 9:13 pm

The Grizzlies have not had much P.T. available for their rookies so far this year, and I don’t see that changing any time soon.  19-year old guard Tony Wroten has played in 22 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 8.5 minutes, 3.1 points, 1.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.  Wroten is only shooting 37.5% from the floor, 30.8% from three point range and 72.7% from the free throw line so far this year….and that’s not too good.  22-year old SG/SF Chris Johnson has played in 8 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 12.8 minutes, 3.6 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.

Tony Wroten is heading to the D-League for the Memphis Grizzlies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Wednesday 21 November 2012 at 9:30 pm

The Grizzlies have sent 19-year old rookie point guard Tony Wroten to the D-League, where he can get some P.T.  He has played in 3 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 2.7 minutes, 0.3 rebounds and 0.3 steals per game.  It makes no sense at all to keep Wroten on the roster right now as he is buried on the depth chart and would only get to play in garbage time, so I agree with this move by the Grizzlies.

The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t have much P.T. for their rookies in 2011-12

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Monday 14 May 2012 at 3:22 pm

The Grizzlies are a young, but veteran team that had their eyes on  a deep playoff run in 2011-12, so they didn’t have much P.T. for their rookies.  26-year old point guard Jeremy Pargo played in 44 games (5 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 9.6 minutes, 2.9 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.  He had issues shooting the ball however, as he only hit 33.3% of his shots from the floor, 26.3% from three point range and 59.3% from the free throw line as a rookie.  21-year old shooting guard Josh Selby also had shooting problems as he only shot 34.7% from the floor last year.  He played in 28 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 8.5 minutes, 2.3 points, 0.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies aren’t get much from their rookies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Wednesday 7 March 2012 at 1:26 pm

The Grizzlies don’t use their rookies much as they have their eyes on returning to the playoffs in 2011-12.  26-year old undrafted point guard Jeremy Pargo has played in 27 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 10.7 minutes, 3.0 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.  Pargo just can’t shoot.  He has only made 33% of his shots from the floor, 21.7% from the three point range and 68.8% from the free throw line so far this year.  20-year old shooting guard Josh Selby has played in 20 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 9.8 minutes, 2.9 points, 0.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  He is also having trouble shooting the ball as he has only hit 39.7% from the floor.

The rookies on the Memphis Grizzlies are shooting a lot of bricks

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Sunday 12 February 2012 at 1:58 am

25-year old undrafted point guard Jeremy Pargo is ice cold as a shooter for the Grizzlies so far this year.  He is only hitting 32.5% (27 of 83) from the floor so far this year, and that is pathetic.  Pargo has played in 19 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 11.9 minutes, 3.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.  20-year old shooting guard Josh Selby has played in 18 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 10.3 minutes, 2.9 points, 0.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  He is only shooting 38.9% from the floor (21 of 54) so far this year and that just isn’t going to cut it.  Look for Pargo and Selby’s playing time to start to diminish if they don’t start shooting a little better soon.

The Memphis Grizzlies need their rookies to shoot a little better

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Thursday 12 January 2012 at 9:01 pm

25-year old point guard Jeremy Pargo and 20-year old shooting guard Josh Selby are not shooting well enough this season to get a lot of playing time right now.  Pargo has played in 9 games (3 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 17.9 minutes, 5.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.  But, he is only shooting 35.1% from the floor so far this season.  Pargo will continue to backup Mike Conley at the point for the Grizzlies.  Josh Selby has played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 14.8 minutes, 4.5 points, 1.0 rebound and 2.8 assists per game.  But, he is only shooting 38.1% from the floor and that’s not too good for a shooting guard.

The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t get much help from the rookies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by admin on Saturday 16 April 2011 at 2:27 pm

20-year old shooting guard Xavier Henry’s season ended early due to a knee injury.  Henry played in 38 games (16 starts) for the Grizzlies this year and he averaged 13.9 minutes, 4.3 points, 1.0 rebound and 0.5 assists per game.  24-year old SG/PG Greivis Vasquez played in 70 games (1 start) for the Grizzlies this year and he averaged 12.3 minutes, 3.6 points, 1.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.  He played a little better as the year went on.  22-year old PG Ishmael Smith came over along with Shane Battier in a deal with the Rockets.  He played in 15 games (0 starts) for the Grizzlies last year and he averaged 7.5 minutes, 1.8 points, 0.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.  Smith played in 43 games (3 starts) for the Rockets & Grizzlies and he averaged 10.3 minutes, 2.3 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.  The Grizzlies hope that these guys will improve as players and help them down the road.
