Memphis Grizzlies draft history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Memphis Grizzlies draft history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Memphis Grizzlies were first located in Vancouver after the National Basketball Association (NBA) granted the city an expansion team on April 27, 1994, and they first participated in the NBA Draft in 1995.

Frank Amico's insight:

For a team that "hit" on a lot of these picks, their inability to keep any of these players is overwhelmingly more impressive. This list does not even include Rudy Gay, who they technically "traded for" on draft night, but nevertheless traded away.  Amazingly, the Grizzlies are still a quality team.
