The Memphis Grizzlies announced their 2013 Las Vegas Summer League Roster today, which includes four players that were on the Grizzlies roster last season: Tony Wroten, Donté Green, Jon Leuer, and Willie Reed. Rookie draft picks Jamaal Franklin and Janis Timma are also on the roster.
One non-Grizzlies player that made the roster that's worth keeping an eye on is Vander Blue. The Grizzlies liked Blue in the draft process, and he can score in bunches when he's hot. He also has a decent three-point stroke. Depending on how he performs, he is someone the Grizzlies could look at signing either now or down the road to add scoring to the roster. Blue might never be a Grizzly, but he certainly merits being watched closely.
Current Grizzlies assistant Bob Thornton will coach the team. On this note, how great would it be if Billy Bob Thornton was the one that showed up to coach the team?
