Grizzlies select Jarell Martin in NBA Draft

NEW YORK (WMC) - The Memphis Grizzlies have just one pick in this year's draft at number 25, and they take Louisiana State University power forward Jarell Martin.

The 6-foot-9, 239 pound power forward was named to the All-SEC First Team as a sophomore, averaging 16.9 points and 9 rebounds. He led the Tigers to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2009.

Martin was one of many who worked out for the Grizzlies pre-draft.

He can shoot, and has plenty of athleticism, but the knock is his defense--something stressed with the Grizzlies and their 'Grit-N-Grind' mentality.
