  • Tyus Jones
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Minnesota is declining to match Tyus Jones' offer sheet from the Grizzlies.

    This likely puts Jones into Delon Wright's vacated backup point guard spot behind Ja Morant based on the investment (three years, $28 million). If Morant starts slowly or misses time, Jones would be a must-add, but otherwise he's probably just an assists and steals streamer looking at something like 20 minutes per game.

    Brandon Clarke helped the Grizzlies eke out a defensive win by recording nine points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block and a team-high +25 plus/minus in Tuesday's 79-69 win against the Suns.

    The first-round pick's stats don't pop off the page, but he had more than double the next highest team member's plus/minus ratio which is a better indicator of how he played. Ivan Rabb chipped in with 12 rebounds and Bruno Caboclo had a well-rounded game with six points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks. Each of the three will be looking to crack the Grizzlies rotation next season as they commence their new youth movement.

  • Dwight Howard
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Speaking to the Athletic on Monday, Dwight Howard said that he has shed approximately 25 pounds since the end of the NBA season and that he is medically cleared to play basketball.

    Howard is expected to be waived by the Grizzlies soon but it’s questionable whether there is a market for his services. He missed almost the entire season last year and teams will probably be cautious due to his injury history, but it’s not of question that someone takes a flier on him.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have finalized the trade for Delon Wright which sends two second-round draft picks to Memphis along with the draft rights to Satnam Singh.

    Wright's value in the upcoming season is tough to nail down as he may or may not be the Mavs' starting point guard. He often played around 20 minutes per game with the Raptors where he showed promise but didn't get enough run to really matter in standard leagues. When he was shipped to the tanking Grizzlies, he played over 30 minutes per game and was worth starting for his 5.3 asssists and 1.6 steals per game. Watch the news in training camp on Wright.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke looked sharp in his Summer League debut on Sunday, dropping 17 points (7-of-11 shooting) in 17 minutes, along with one trey, four boards, one assist and two blocks.

    Clarke was scouted as being NBA-ready thanks to his versatility on both ends of the floor. He did not need a lot of time to do his damage, which bodes well for his 2019-20 outlook considering he will likely be backing up Jaren Jackson Jr. at four.

  • Andre Iguodala
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies have officially acquired Andre Iguodala.

    It has been rumored that the Grizzlies will buy Iguodala out, but they reportedly have no interest in doing so before the season begins and would like to try and trade him instead. Considering the Grizz already picked up $2 million in cash and a first-rounder from Golden State in this deal, flipping Iguodala for more picks would be tremendous asset management. We'll hold off on forecasting Iguodala's fantasy value until we know where he's likely to begin the season.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    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
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    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
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    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
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    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.
