2016 NBA Draft: Memphis Grizzlies Select Wade Baldwin at #17 Overall

A bit of a surprise, but a welcome one. Promises are two-way streets apparently. Wade Baldwin IV is not Malachi Richardson, who was reportedly promised by Memphis Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace that if he were available he would be Memphis' pick if he shut down his workouts for other teams. But Richardson did not do that, so the Grizzlies have gone in a different direction... It's...

Do the Memphis Grizzlies need a quick fix or major overhaul?

The Memphis Grizzlies have been a “fringe” team for a number of years now, and it doesn’t seem like the front office wants to give up on their roster yet. But, in a rapidly-evolving NBA now based around three-point shooting, the Grizzlies blue-color, grind-in-the-paint approach just doesn’t seem to be working. This current roster, filled with old and sluggish players that...
