Could the Memphis Grizzlies trade up on NBA Draft night?
The Memphis Grizzlies are in a unique spot this offseason. They’ve stated that one of their former core pieces Dillon Brooks isn’t coming back, franchise player Ja Morant will miss the first 25 games this season, and they still want to compete for a championship.
The Grizzlies may look to strengthen their roster with a trade for a star-caliber player on draft night, but they could also look to trade up in the draft for someone who could really help them out right now.
Memphis has been great in recent years selecting players in the draft that come in and play big minutes right away. If they find the right guy that fits their roster this year, moving up would be the correct idea.
Let’s explore three potential trade-up targets or the Grizzlies on draft night.
