11. Memphis Grizzlies (via LAL) – Bennedict Mathurin, F, Arizona

The Los Angeles Lakers lose their pick and it conveys to the Memphis Grizzlies which will give them an opportunity to continue to build around Ja Morant – or even move this pick for a veteran player that could help them take a more escalated step forward.

Looking to add some help on the wing, Bennedict Mathurin could be a fit. During his sophomore season, Mathurin is averaging 17  points and six rebounds per game on 47 percent shooting from the field and 37 percent shooting from 3-point range.

Mathurin could benefit from playing and developing alongside Morant, Desmond Bane, and Jaren Jackson Jr. The Grizzlies are molding quite the core and if they hit again in the lottery, the future is going to be even brighter.
