Grizzlies set for NBA Draft

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - For the Memphis Grizzlies, history has not been kind in the NBA Draft. However, with new ownership, new management and a new coach in Dave Joerger, the 2013 NBA Draft has the potential to mark a fresh beginning. The only players currently on the Grizzlies roster that were drafted by the team are last year's first round pick Tony Wroten, and 2007 first round pick Mike Conley.

It's been said this year's draft class is one of the weakest classes in recent memory, with no definitive, sure fire all-stars to be found.

That shouldn't effect Memphis, though, as this year the Grizzlies don't pick until the second round where they hold the 41st, 55th, and the last pick in the draft at 60th overall.

At that point, it's impossible to know who will be available, but Joerger says the management and scout team have done a solid job in preparing for anything to happen.

The Grizzlies could end up keeping their three second round picks, or they could trade up in the draft, or even trade a couple of their picks away.

There's a lot of directions the Grizzlies could go in, but of course, the main area of concern with the team lies with the lack of outside shooting. Management, however, has been steady in the fact they will not go based on need, but by the best available, no matter the position or where they're from.
