Roster Building - Where to for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2014/15

An interesting time for the Memphis Grizzlies organisation. After a tough 1st round loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, what can we expect the 2014/15 roster to look like. First, the current commitments and the projected luxury tax line.

The Grizzlies have quite a few players signed already with only minor turnover and few real decisions to be made. If ZBo picks up his $16.5 million option and the team pick-up Kosta and extend the qualifying offer to Ed Davis, then the team will look like the below.

I have included the resigning of two players, Nick Calathes and James Johnson. Both I believe could be signed for $3.5 million deals over two years. If so, very cheap production at those prices. Otherwise, pretty much the depth chart speaks for itself with pretty much all players returning. I would draft the best PG available.

Mike Conley Nick Calathes
Courtney Lee Tony Allen Jamaal Franklin
