The Grizzles are currently one of the surprise teams in the NBA. They have won eight of their last 10 games and are looking more and more like a playoff contender.
Memphis is somehow having this success despite the colossal bust that is Hasheem Thabeet.
He was the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft and the entire front office in Memphis is ready to ship him out of town ASAP less than two seasons into his career.
That’s what happens when you’re a seven-footer that averages 1.1 point, 1.6 rebounds and .3 blocks while shooting 42 percent from the floor.
Those are some historically bad numbers and Thabeet is the only top five pick to ever play in the NBDL.
The Grizzles are reportedly “aggressively” shopping the former Uconn star, which begs the question…what team in their right mind would want this guy?
Here are just a few things that are in higher demand than Thabeet.
