Randy Foye and Andre Miller Among Memphis Grizzlies Offseason Targets

I already mentioned Kirk Hinrich and Ray Allen as two veteran players the Grizzlies are going to pursue this offseason, but it appears as if we can now add Randy Foye and Andre Miller to that list.

According to Ron Tillery:

Los Angeles Clippers guard Randy Foye, Atlanta's Kirk Hinrich and Denver's Andre Miller are also on the Grizzlies' wish list. The Griz expect to go into the luxury tax this season as owner Michael Heisley has given general manager Chris Wallace permission to use the full mid-level exception.

Andre Miller makes sense, as the Grizzlies look for a veteran point guard to come off the bench behind Mike Conley. You could probably get him at a cheaper rate than what the market value seems to be for Hinrich. However, what I don't like about Miller is that he can't shoot. Now, I wouldn't make such a big deal about his lack of range, but when you consider that we have no shooters on the court, can you imagine the lack of spacing in a Miller-Tony Wroten backcourt? Not good.

With Foye, I think my main concern with him is health. The good news, though, is that he only missed one game last season. However, that has "red flag" written all over it. Dude misses one game in a contract year after having missed 82 games over the previous four season? Yeah, be careful there.

Foye, though, does provide a nice scoring threat, as someone who can hit threes and also drop his free throws. His overall efficiency, however, is a bit pedestrian -- shot under 40% from the field in each of the last two seasons. But if we can't get Allen and we strike out elsewhere, Foye might be a nice fall-back option. Especially if we can get him on the cheap.
