Mock Drafts Projecting to Grizzlies: 0/6

Take him: Hood is a tall wing player, with a solid wingspan. He's a great offensive player, and can immediately be a three-point threat. He's also a great leaper and athlete.

Don't take him: Memphis is a grit n' grind team who focuses on defense. Rodney Hood's defense has been graded poorly throughout the draft process. Like T. J. Warren, Hood might be gone by the time the Grizzlies pick at 22.

Notes: Did not work out for the Grizzlies. Started collegiate career at Mississippi State and is from nearby Meridian, MS. Grizzlies interim GM Chris Wallace mentioned him as a player the Grizzlies are looking at.
