25. Memphis Grizzlies (via UTA) – E.J. Liddell, F, Ohio State

The Grizzlies have continued to make quite the progress this season and one more addition to the team could be E.J. Liddell. He just seems like a Grizzlies player – he just seems like a winning player that will be willing to do the dirty work at the next level.

As a junior, Liddell is averaging 19 points, eight rebounds, and three assists per game on 52 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent shooting from 3-point range.

He’s not a player that’s going to drastically raise the ceiling for the Grizzlies but he’s certainly a talent that could make an impact in the NBA if he finds the right situation.
