W-L Record: 29-15
Scoring Offense: 93.4 (27th)
Scoring Defense: 89.5 (1st)
Tayshaun Prince is likely to improve an already stellar defensive unit. Ed Davis and Austin Daye, meanwhile, are young legs who will contribute to both forward positions.
The question is, how will the Grizzlies improve upon their 27th-ranked scoring offense with Rudy Gay now absent?
Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol are an elite interior offensive tandem. They can carry the scoring load on most nights by working in-and-out.
The pressure, however, rests on point guard Mike Conley Jr. to step up as a facilitator.
With all of this being established, the Grizzlies were already one of the best teams in the NBA. This deal not only saves them money, but improves their depth.
With Prince, a former NBA champion, they also improve their postseason legitimacy.
Look for the new additions to make a big impact down the stretch.
With Memphis an even 5-5 during its past 10 games, fresh faces will be welcomed.
