The Grizzlies have been in need of a shooter for years, so Miller seems to be a good fit if he is healthy. Otherwise their biggest moves were re-signing their defensive stopper in Allen at a bargain price and replacing Lionel Hollins with Dave Joerger on the bench.

While the Grizzlies weren’t very active in free agency, they added a very nice piece in the draft in Franklin, who could turn out to be the steal of the draft.

Memphis is a team that looks to take another run at a Western Conference championship with the core that they have and it is a solid one with a ton of potential to do so.

Grade: C+
