Memphis Grizzlies rookie forward Brandon Clarke was named the MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League. In six games, Clarke averaged 14.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest, showing that he can be a valuable piece of the Grizzlies' rotation this upcoming season. The Grizzlies are a young and rebuilding team, and Clarke is bound to get plenty of minutes in the team's front court this season. He's going to be a valuable fantasy contributor thanks to his ability to score efficiently and rebound well.
The Phoenix Suns have just been swindled out of one of their better young assets in De'Anthony Melton for the sole reason of dumping Josh Jackson. Jackson, the former fourth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has had troubles, on and off the court, and now finds himself in a new home with an abundance of young talent and competence. This is an opportunity to rehab his game and image if legal troubles do not interfere. In this deal, the Grizzlies sent over veteran shooting guard Kyle Korver and defensive-minded point guard Jevon Carter and received two second-round picks (one conditional). Korver's partially guaranteed deal is reportedly getting bought out, and he will receive interest from the Lakers, Sixers, and Bucks.
Memphis Grizzlies small forward Julian Washburn was scorching hot from the get-go during Mondays Summer League win over the Utah Jazz, finishing 7-for-10 from the floor overall, including 5-for-6 from long range en route to a 20-point effort. Washburn made his NBA debut with Memphis last season, appearing in 18 games, including a trio of starts. With the organization undergoing an offseason overhaul, the 27-year-old is looking to earn a roster spot and his early shooting display will get him some attention after not having an outing last season with multiple made threes.
Memphis Grizzlies power forward/center Ivan Rabb may have started 13 games last season, but he still found himself getting some extra run during Mondays Summer League victory over the Utah Jazz, in which he totaled 14 points and four rebounds across 26 minutes. The 22-year-old got a taste of significant minutes in the Memphis frontcourt for a stretch in 2018-19, and figures to remain in a prominent role behind the duo of Jaren Jackson Jr. and Jonas Valanciunas during the upcoming year. After shooting 3-for-15 from three across 49 games last season, Rabb went 1-for-2 on Monday alone, while also adding a pair of blocked shots.
Memphis Grizzlies small forward Yuta Watanabe paced his squad to a win Monday over the Utah Jazz in the Summer League opener, going for 20 points on 7-for-12 shooting. Watanabe added nine rebounds and shot 5-for-6 from the free-throw line, while the Grizzlies finished +22 during his 27 minutes on the court. The 24-year-old Japanese lefty logged action in 15 games last season with Memphis, averaging 2.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. With new opportunities aplenty for a new-look Grizzlies squad in 2019-20, Watanabe is off to a strong start in his quest to getting consistent minutes in the upcoming season.
