Memphis Grizzlies NBA 2022-23 Roster

The Grizzlies made some big moves in the 2022 NBA Draft, grabbing Roddy and LaRavia in the first round before scooping up Chandler in the second round. 

All three players showed flashes at Summer League, although Roddy might be the only one to crack the regular rotation this season. 

Green is recovering from an ACL injury and is unlikely to play this season.

Melton was part of the draft day trades which helped Memphis land Roddy and Green. He’s not totally irreplaceable in the rotation but he was a savvy player who could be potent from the perimeter. We’ll see how the Grizzlies address Melton’s departure, with Ziaire Williams likely getting a crack at taking his spot first. The Grizzlies probably believe they beat the Warriors in the second round if Morant was healthy. 


That would mean they likely also believe they would have beaten the Mavericks and made the NBA Finals. The expectation is to compete for a championship, while also seeing some improvement from peripheral players. Morant, Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks are locked into the starting lineup. Until Jaren Jackson Jr. returns from injury, I expect Brandon Clarke and Steven Adams to round out the first five. When Jackson Jr. returns, look for whoever has performed worse between Clarke and Adams to hit the bench.
