Memphis Grizzlies: Ranking O.J. Mayo, Rest of Bench After Release of Josh Davis

The Memphis Grizzlies picked up a sleepy 85-80 win at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.

They did it with a significant amount of help from their bench. With Marc Gasol, Marreese Speights and Mike Conley struggling to hit shots, Dante Cunningham scored in double figures and Jeremy Pargo dropped a few buckets.

O.J. Mayo did his usual double-digit scoring job.

The Grizzlies have a nice bench set. O.J. Mayo is a solid all-around player off the bench. Others like Cunningham are pretty decent, although most people wouldn't be able to pick them out of a crowd.

On Thursday, the Grizzlies released forward Josh Davis in a quiet transaction. Davis, a three-year pro from Wyoming who bounced around NBA camps for a few years before making it with the Grizzlies, had averaged 1.9 points and 1.8 rebounds per game in 15 games. He had only played two NBA games prior to 2011-12.

That leaves the Grizzlies with seven active players on the Grizzlies bench. When Zach Randolph returns from injury, it would become eight, with Speights moving to the bench.

Following is a ranking of the seven active bench players for the Grizzlies.
