Rookies Martin, Harrison offer versatility to Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- There may or may not have been a promise. There are no guarantees. Jarell Martin, the Memphis Grizzlies' first-round draft pick, told NOLA.com after last week's NBA Draft that the Grizzlies told him they were going to pick him right where they did, at No. 25. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace was quick to point out after the draft there were no promises. At...

Predators draft four centers, seven overall at 2015 NHL Entry Draft

With the speculation abound that the Predators could try and move back into the first round of the draft, nothing ever seemed to come of it. Neither was the case for Nashville to make any sort of splash on the trade market, either. All in all, it was a very quiet and laid back weekend for the Preds. A bit different from last year when Nashville made plenty of noise, trading for forward...

Busy draft day, but did Grizzlies improve long-range shooting?

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Memphis went to bed on NBA draft night relying on a brash and unpopular opponent to pull its team out of a long-enmeshed shooting slump. The day started with 35-year-old Matt Barnes coming from Charlotte in a trade for Luke Ridnour, and Barnes' 36 percent 3-point shooting clip wasn't the only thing that attracted Memphis to him. "He also can guard a variety of positions...

Preds draft route should follow a very familiar path

After spending the previous two offseasons preparing for higher-than-normal draft selections in the first round, the Predators will be taking a bit of a different approach to the draft later this week. Without any type of trade to push them forward, Nashville will be watching the first round from the sidelines. Even without a first round selection, this year has the potential to...

How should Nashville address its needs at center?

Nashville, Tenn. -- Much can be said about what Nashville plans to do next season to bolster what it has down the middle. The two Mike's, Fisher and Ribeiro, are both actively working alongside their respective agents and general manager David Poile to potentially resume their role with the Predators. Paul Gaustad remains, for all intents and purposes, the only true center signed...

Grizzlies coaches playing catch-up in final cramming before NBA draft

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- NBA coaches have a tough enough time scouting LeBron James and Stephen Curry -- the superstars of today's game. However, blindly deciding whom to draft to defend James and Curry is a different story. "I don't know anything about the (June 25) draft," said Grizzlies assistant coach Bob Thornton. "I just know the players they've told us to study up on and go from...

Grizzlies get defensive with draft workout of Hollis-Jefferson

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies need shooting. Again. The opinions on where that shooting comes from vary as much as the opinions on Grizzlies' past draft choices. Hasheem Thabeet is nearly vulgarity on Beale Street. In less than two weeks, the 2015 NBA Draft will give Grizzlies fans another year to dissect its front office. Past drafts have passed on James Harden and Steph...

Local prospect Richardson stands out in Grizzlies' pre-draft workouts

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Reading too much into the Grizzlies' pre-draft workouts would be like reading too much into Matthew Dellavedova's Games 2 and 3 of the NBA Finals or Tim Tebow's touchdown pass to beat the Steelers in the 2012 NFL playoffs. Still, Josh Richardson's second appearance at a Grizzlies predraft workout is starting to become an interesting read. The Tennessee Volunteer...

What happens if Preds can afford only one of Wilson or Smith?

Nashville, Tenn. -- Zero argument can be made that Nashville has been able to draft talented -- all-world in some cases -- defensemen over the years. Home-grown talent at the blue-line has come easily for the Predators. Yet, when shifting the view towards the offensive scale of talent, Nashville has been lacking the same success they've seen in drafting for other positions. Can that...

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders didn't let the NHL-leading Nashville Predators push them around in their last visit to Long Island. The last one in the regular season, at least.
