The Memphis Grizzlies hosted their fourth draft workout Tuesday morning, and it was filled with both shooters and big men.
The team focused on Utah senior 6-foot-6 guard Delon Wright, a second-team All-American. Wright was the recipient of the Bob Cousy Award. He averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists per game. Wright can play either the point guard or shooting guard. He is expected to go late first round or early second round.
“Utah was a big winning team this year and they were one of the two best teams in the Pac-12, and he was the big reason why they won at a rate that this school had never seen in probably a decade or more,” said Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace.
In addition to Wright, the Grizzlies hosted three other guards. Michael Frazier from Florida and Olivier Hanlan from Boston College are both projected to go in the second round. Sharpshooter Tyler Haws from BYU is also projected to be a late second round pick.
In a workout full of guards, Jarell Martin from LSU and Rakeem Christmas from Syracuse rounded out the group for the big men. Both bigs are expected to go in the second round of the draft.
When talking about the workout, Wallace said, “This was a high caliber workout and you consider where many of these players are projected. You got a couple guys that are projected for the first round, early second round. All of them are accomplished college players.”
