    The Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder have completed their trade, sending Brandon Clarke to the Grizzlies, and Darius Bazley to the Thunder.

    Though Clarke had a disappointing drop on draft night, he actually landed in a pretty solid situation on a rebuilding Grizzlies team. He should get a crack at decent minutes off the bench behind Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jonas Valanciunas, and if he is able to replicate his solid percentages and per-minute production that he had in college, he could have a shot at producing low-end fantasy value.

  • Delon Wright

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas News reports that the Mavs still intend to offer sheet Delon Wright, and that it could happen as soon as Saturday night.

    Mark Cuban said the Mavs were done in free agency unless a good opportunity presented itself, and one imagines that taking a run at Wright qualifies. Dallas could still use a point guard and Wright might be the best man still on the market. Memphis is allegedly planning to match anything "reasonable" so we'll see what happens. The Grizzlies will have 48 hours to match once an offer sheet is signed. Wright would be looking at an easy 20-plus mpg in Dallas should he end up with the Mavs.

    Bruno Caboclo scored 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's loss to the Pacers.

    Logging 22 minutes, Caboclo was effective from the field missing just two shots. He ended the regular season on a tear and it was good to see him pickup where he left off.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley is now officially a member of the Utah Jazz in a trade involving Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and 23rd pick Darius Bazley.

    The Grizzlies will also acquire a future protected first-round pick. Korver will be involved in another to the Suns while Crower, Allen and Bazley should stay for the Memphis rebuild. Conley will form a dynamic backcourt with Donovan Mitchell while Grizzlies owner Robert Parra issued a statement that the team will one day hang Conley's jersey in the rafters after spending 12 memorable seasons with them.

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    The deadline of July 5 came and went without Dillon Brooks being waived so his contract becomes fully guaranteed for the 2019-20 season.

    Brooks got plenty of run as a rookie but was set back in his second season last year, being held to just 18 games and undergoing surgery on his big toe in January, missing the rest of the season. It currently looks like it will be a three-man battle between Brooks, Josh Jackson and Grayson Allen for the starting shooting guard spot.

  • Avery Bradley
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    David Aldridge reports that the Grizzlies have waived veteran Avery Bradley.

    His 2019-20 was to be guaranteed on July 8th, so the Grizzlies made their move and are continuing to clean house for a strategic rebuild. Bradley should still find a landing spot in the league but will need an ultra-ideal spot to spring late-round flier value.

  • Dwight Howard

    Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Dwight Howard has been traded to the Grizzlies for C.J. Miles.

    Woj also adds that the Grizzlies plan to either trade or waive Howard. That's good news for fans of Jonas Valanciunas and Jaren Jackson Jr. as the oft-injured big man won't be there to clog up the frontcourt rotation. The Wizards are clearly moving on and are all-in with Thomas Bryant as their center of the future.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas News reports that the Mavs have increased their interest in Delon Wright and plan to give him an offer sheet.

    Wright would be a wonderful addition to the Dallas backcourt, giving the team added playmaking, length and defensive versatility. He may not function as the primary ball-handler but there is an outside chance that Wright could start at point guard should he end up in Dallas. Wright finished last season with a top-50 stretch and flourished in extended minutes, so fantasy owners might want to be rooting for an offer sheet to get him out from under Ja Morant in Memphis. ESPN's Tim MacMahon is hearing that the Grizzlies would match any "reasonable" offer on Wright, however, so the Mavs might need to get very aggressive.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Per Michael Scotto of The Athletic, Justin Holiday is considering interest from several teams including the Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards, Hornets and Cavs.

    It is also being reported that the Grizzlies are willing to do a sign-and-trade with the 30-year-old wing. Holiday is seemingly in a holding pattern until Kawhi Leonard decides on his future, as three of the mentioned teams with interest aren't going to make a move until then. His market should heat up fairly soon.

  • Andre Iguodala
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    ESPN's Tim MacMahon is reporting that the Grizzlies are not interested in buying out Andre Iguodala before the season and are instead exploring the trade market, with the Rockets and Mavs among teams interested in a deal.

    While the Grizzlies are understandably looking to move Iguodala off a rebuilding roster, it's smart for them to at least check and see what they could receive in a trade before cutting the veteran loose. They've already received a first-round pick from the Warriors for taking on Iguodala's salary and can spin him into even more futures if they play their cards right. Memphis has had a solid offseason in terms of adding picks and young players, and moving Iguodala to a desperate team in an increasingly wide-open Western Conference could only add to their stockpile.

  • Keenan Evans
    G, Memphis Grizzlies

    Keenan Evans led the Grizzlies to an 81-68 win over the Cavs in Summer League action on Wednesday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting with two steals, a block and three 3-pointers.

    Evans came off the bench but completely took over the game. He signed a two-way contract with the Pistons last year after wrapping up a successful four-year stint with Texas Tech, eventually ending up with G-League Delaware. Evans will look to crack the NBA this year after posting 11.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.2 threes in the G-League last season.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies are set to acquire De'Anthony Melton from the Suns along with Josh Jackson and two second-rounders in exchange for Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter.

    It was surprising when Melton wasn't on the Suns' Summer League roster earlier today, but perhaps this is why. It's a worthwhile gamble for Memphis, who adds two young players with upside for a veteran they weren't going to play and a sophomore with lower upside than Melton. Melton started 31 games (50 apperances) for the Suns last season and flashed his defensive prowess with 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks in 19.7 mpg, but he has a long way to go on the offensive end. He remains an intriguing dynasty asset and could make a bigger splash if Memphis doesn't retain Delon Wright.

  • Josh Jackson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Suns will trade Josh Jackson and De'Anthony Melton, along with two second-round picks, to the Grizzlies for Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter.

    Jackson is the highest-profile player in the deal as the Grizzlies will take a chance at building up the former No. 4 overall pick, who has clearly fallen quite a ways. It's been a troubling offseason for Jackson, who suffered an unspecified left foot injury after being arrested at a music festival in Miami. It's possible that he ends up with a consistent role on a Grizzlies squad looking to find long-term pieces, but his weak stat set and the presence of better players at both forward spots means Jackson won't be a fantasy target until he proves that he's capable of producing. The second-rounders are conditional in 2020 and 2021.

  • Miles Plumlee

    Miles Plumlee will be headed to the Grizzlies, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Plumlee appeared in 18 games last season and underwent some non-surgical procedures on his left knee before undergoing arthroscopic surgery in late March. The Grizzlies are set in the frontcourt and will view Plumlee as an expiring salary that could have trade value.

  • Solomon Hill
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Solomon Hill will be traded to the Grizzlies.

    Memphis and Atlanta are exchanging unwanted salary, and it'll be easier to move out smaller chunks of money in Hill and Miles Plumlee than it was to come to a buyout agreement with Chandler Parsons. Hill could see minutes if Memphis moves out its more tradeable players first, but there's not fantasy value at play here.
