According to Ron Higgins of The Commercial Appeal, the Memphis Grizzlies aren't done with the trade market. Per Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace, the Grizzlies are not ruling out the possibility of making another deal.
The question is, which trade targets would keep Memphis in the title hunt?
The Grizzlies made a financial statement when they traded Rudy Gay, Wayne Ellington and Marreese Speights. Gay was the franchise player, while Ellington and Speights were the first two reserves off of the bench.
With that being said, Memphis is not comfortable with saying their recent trades are the only ones they're willing to make.
“It’s very possible [to make another deal] because we don’t have to include one of our players because of receiving trade assignments,” Wallace said at a press conference in the Grizzlies’ practice facility in FedExForum. “We now can be a team that can relieve a luxury-tax burden on another team. We can go someplace, see a player we like that’s out of a rotation and get him using this $7.5 million trade exception that’s good for the next 365 days. It’s a very valuable piece of real estate.”
Indeed it is.
The Grizzlies have the money to make a deal and aid the need for improvement on offense. They rank 28th in scoring offense and last in three-point field goals per game.
The following players could help in said areas and create a stronger sense of legitimacy.
