That solid shooting likewise means a smooth draw up game, and Whitehead showed that he is a proficient and dynamic protector while going toward folks around his size.”

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor likewise figures the Grizzlies could pull out all the stops with their 25th pick. O'Connor said that the group could do as such to compensate for waiting wounds to large men Steven Adams and Brandon Clarke.

“Clowney's flexible protection is his purpose in life card, yet he likewise projects as either a roller or a shooter on offense. Matching him with Jaren Jackson Jr. could permit the Grizzlies to play 5-out while holding size, something few groups can do.”

Memphis is significantly less prone to find a revolution level player at No. 45 or 56. Notwithstanding, they could take a flier on some high-potential gain project-type players. They could likewise bundle those picks alongside their No. 25 pick to climb in the draft.
