Memphis Grizzlies: What We Have Realized After the Grizzlies' Trades

The Memphis Grizzlies have been the biggest players near the trade deadline so far, pulling the trigger on the only two transactions so far this season.

In their first trade (via ESPN), they cleared some room on their salary cap because they're a small market team looking to avoid the luxury tax. The Grizzlies basically gave up two of their best bench players in Wayne Ellington and Marreese Speights, along with a young point guard in Josh Selby and a future first round pick. All for consistent D-League big man, Jon Leuer.

This trade made sense at the time, considering that the Grizzlies can keep together their core for the future.

But they didn't.

They decided to part ways (via ESPN) with Rudy Gay, and received a package of young prospects surrounding veteran Tayshaun Prince.

With only two games under their belt, what have we realized from these trades so far? 

This slideshow discusses some of the pros and cons of the Grizzlies' trades so far.
