The draft coverage keeps on rolling. For this edition of “The Long View,” I have Chris Vernon of Grind City Media and The Ringer to talk about the snowball effect of drafting good players. Many times, teams go for upside and potential, and the proven college players go by the wayside. Not for the Memphis Grizzlies though.
- The Grizzlies recent draft success
- If drafting ready-to-go players has helped expedite the rebuild
- Guys exceeding value past their draft spots
- Long View Questions: Is this draft philosophy foreshadowing how they’ll draft when Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. get extensions, or for a post-consolidation Grizzlies team? Which 2021 prospect will not fail?
NEW EPISODE OF THE LONG VIEW
I have @ChrisVernonShow on the podcast to talk about the snowball effect of drafting well:
⏩How drafting older prospects sped up rebuild
How players exceed pick value
If the current draft philosophy will continue when Ja/Jaren get extended?
