The NBA offseason! It feels like it’s never going to stop. But now the training camps are underway and the actual season is just around the corner.
So I thought it would be a good time to see how the rosters have changed and what that means for all 30 NBA teams. We can do that by examining what happened to them last season, how their four groups of players (Lead Guards, Wings, Forwards and Bigs) have changed this summer, whether the team has improved or not and how they succeed with the new group. We also give them an overall score for the summer and bring you a local or national expert to answer three pressing questions about this team.
How an off-season ended for each team depends on what goals they have in building their group of guys. These are the statuses available for the 30 teams:
rebuild the franchise
Tired of rebuilding the franchise
The play-in tournament gives them life
On the edge of the quarrel
championship or bust
Today we break down the Memphis Grizzlies (56-26 last season) who are still winning early and try to figure out how a young team can compete for a title.
Overall Grade from Off-Season: Grade (Text Zach)
Team Status: Edge of Controversy
What happened last season?
The Grizzlies have won a few games. I know this sounds simplistic, but it didn’t really matter who was out there for the Grizzlies. They just kept winning. Ja Morant missed 25 games in the regular season, and the Grizzlies won 20 of those games. Dillon Brooks missed 50 games and the Grizzlies went 34-16 in those games.
