Morant and the Grizzlies had a fantastic season finishing the year as the second seed in the Western Conference. The 2019 second overall pick made his first career All-Star Game, and the Grizzlies also made it to the second-round of the NBA Playoffs. They beat the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first-round in six games, and then lost to the Golden State Warriors in the second-round in six games.
The Memphis Grizzlies signed first-round draft picks Jake LaRavia and David Roddy to multi-year contracts on Saturday. Terms of the deal for both forwards were not disclosed. LaRavia, 21, was selected 19th overall in the 2022 NBA Draft by the Grizzlies, who acquired that pick in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Everyone outside of Ja Morant would be on the table for KD If Friday's Rudy Gobert trade showed fans anything, it's that teams are willing to go to extreme lengths to land superstar talent. While Beasley took a step back in his scoring for 2021-2022 after playing a full season, he was still the fourth-best scorer for Minnesota, posting 12.1 points per game, and converting more than 80% of his free throws.
