Kobi Simmons    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Kobi Simmons has agreed to a free agent deal with the Grizzlies. Simmons was a top-25 high school recruit, but didn't live up to expectations during his freshman season at Arizona. In 23.5 minutes per game, he averaged 8.7 points, 2.0 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 0.9 triples on 39.5 percent shooting. He's an impressive athlete, but he's also a defensive liability and inefficient scorer who will likely spend a lot of time developing the G-League over the next couple years.

Ivan Rabb    F  Grizzlies

 

 

The Memphis Grizzlies have selected Cal F Ivan Rabb with the No. 35 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. This was originally Orlando's pick, but it was sent to the Grizzlies in exchange for a future second-round selection. Rabb has been a little banged up during pre-draft workouts from an ankle sprain suffered while working out with the Pacers. The injury limited him to mostly shooting in the pre-draft process, and he previously said he wound up missing about six workouts, which could be a reason why he slid into the second round. Rabb is more of a straight four man with his 6’10" height and 7’2" wingspan, but he could wind up getting some spot minutes at the five. Rabb did also have 60.9 percent of his shots come off a jumper, so he does have upside as a potential floor spacer.

The Grizzlies acquired the No. 35 pick from the Magic. The Grizzlies will trade away a Brooklyn second-round pick in 2019 to get their only pick so far tonight.

Tony Allen    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

The Grizzlies aren't willing to offer Tony Allen more than the veteran's minimum this summer, according to sources of Memphis beat reporter Ronald Tillery. Allen is 35 years old and beginning to lose some of his luster as a defensive stalwart, so it wouldn't make much sense to give him a massive deal. However, he might be able to secure an offer for slightly more than the minimum outside of Memphis. Either way, there won't be many leagues where The Grindfather will be worthy of a draft pick next season.

Chandler Parsons    F  Grizzlies

 

 

Chandler Parsons (left knee) is "pretty close" to being 100 percent healthy, according to Grizzlies' GM Chris Wallace. "Physically, he’s where he should be," said Wallace of Parsons. "He’s now pretty close to being full steam ahead with basketball." Parsons' first year in Memphis after signing a four-year, max deal worth $94 million this past offseason was nothing short of a disaster as he only managed to suit up for a total of 34 games while hitting career-lows across the board. He's now undergone major surgeries to both of his knees, and his inability to stay healthy over the past three years is obviously a major red flag.

Bryce Cotton    G  Grizzlies

 

 

Bryce Cotton will play for the Atlanta Hawks in the 2017 Summer League. Cotton played for Atlanta's summer league squad in 2016 as well. The Hawks were willing to sign him to a 10-day contract back in January, but Cotton instead decided to finish the 2016-17 campaign in Australia with the Perth Wildcats.

The Grizzlies announced the launch of their NBA G-League team the Memphis Hustle on Thursday. Cool name! The Grizzlies had a number of their players go to the Iowa Energy last year, but now they'll have their own squad to use for development and also be within 30 minutes from the FedEx Forum. Plus, a lot of their facilities will overlap to allow the young guys to get more time with the veterans. The G-League now has 26 teams, which is up from just 16 in 2012-13 and 22 in 2016-17.
