With the Grizzlies officially announcing the signing of fan-favorite Hamed Haddadi this weekend -- and with the Jeremy Pargo for D.J. Kennedy deal happening earlier in the week -- it would seem as if the team's 2012-13 roster is, dare we say, complete.
They now have a total of 15 players on their roster, if you count Kennedy. While it's more likely that the Grizzlies will carry just 14 players, you can pretty much start to chisel the current depth charts into stone.
Let's take a look at what we have thus far, and see if we're any better, on paper, than we were last year.

There you have it, your 2012-13 Memphis Grizzlies.
Now, you might see some players shift positions on the occasion. We'll most likely see Speights play a few minutes at center, while Bayless and Wroten can play the combo guard position. We might even see Selby walk the ball up the court from time-to-time.
Just from looking at it from top to bottom, my initial reaction is that we have a very strong roster. Yes, you can make the argument that the Grizzlies still need to find a way to improve their outside shooting, but I think as long as Selby continues to develop his outside game (along with Ellington, and Bayless who is improving as well...) we'll be able to lift ourselves out of the basement and at the very least be a respectable 3-point shooting team. Hopefully.
What do you guys think? Any room for improvement (well, duh!)? Any roster moves you'd still like to see Chris Wallace consider?
