What Memphis Grizzlies Need from Each of Their Bench Players
USA TODAY Sports

The Memphis Grizzlies saw a shift in the makeup of their bench after they dealt three role players on Jan. 22. That move meant a few guys would have to step up to make up for the losses.

Marreese Speights' departure meant Darrell Arthur would have to step up and take a larger role as a scorer. Arthur has been a significant scorer off the bench for Memphis, but he'll be called upon to do more with the fourth-year player gone.
