After a disappointing season last year, the Memphis Grizzlies will look to bounce back in a strong way in 2018-19. Franchise cornerstones Mike Conley and Marc Gasol will be fully healthy, which means the playoffs aren’t out of the question for Memphis this year. Add in free agent acquisition Kyle Anderson and first round draft pick Jaren Jackson Jr., and things are looking up in Memphis.
Most of last year’s struggles were a result of Conley and Gasol missing time due to injury. Gasol at his best is one of the best centers in the league, and Conley is easily a top 10 point guard. Both are leaders for this young Grizzlies team on both ends of the floor.
Rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. gives the Grizzlies plenty of reasons to be excited about for the future. Drafted 4th overall out of Michigan State, Jackson Jr. is a versatile forward/center whose range extends beyond the arc. Expect Jackson Jr. to take on a bigger role as the season goes on. Memphis is also excited about 26-year old Kyle Anderson, who the team signed to a 4-year, $37 million contract in the summer. The versatile forward comes to Memphis from the San Antonio Spurs, where he thrived under Gregg Popovich.
Guards Dillon Brooks and MarShon Brooks will look to build off strong finishes in the second half of last year. Chandler Parsons, who is finally healthy, will also look to play a key role off the bench. Garrett Temple, JaMychal Green, and Wayne Selden are all in line to earn significant minutes for head coach J.B. Bickerstaff.
