Memphis Grizzlies Trade with Boston Celtics, Draft Deyonta Davis of Michigan State at #31 Overall

The Memphis Grizzlies are winning at the NBA Draft, you guys!

First Wade Baldwin, and now this? I CAN'T FEEL MY FACE.

There were some mock drafts that had Davis as a lottery pick! Our own Chip Williams had him at #13 overall on his big board! This Michigan State Spartan (built in connection with Zach Randolph, fantastic) can clean the boards and finishes aggressively at the rim. He still needs to develop his body in to an NBA player's physique, but there will be time for that as he growss behind a crowded Memphis front court. His talent is more than solid, and a tremendous value at #31 overall.

Also, the Grizzlies took advantage of all these surprise drops down the draft board and turned Jeff Green into two early second round picks...

The Grizzlies will be on the clock again soon enough! They will have their pick of some talented, unanticipated players as the second round pick grinds along!
