Despite having 14 players under contract for next season, Memphis can put itself in position to be a player with cap room by declining the $13 million option on Justise Winslow and waiving the non-guaranteed deal of Jontay Porter. Memphis likely needs to do this anyway, just to have room to take in new players. Even after subtracting those two and adding a first-round pick, the Grizzlies will only have two open roster spots. Memphis needs another big wing — as we just saw in the playoffs — and took its shot at Winslow, but it didn’t work out. However, the market isn’t exactly littered with alternatives. The best big wing available in the free-agent market is … Kelly Oubre? Nic Batum?
Memphis will probably be without forwards Brandon Clarke and Jontay Porter for the first preseason game Saturday night against the Timberwolves in Minnesota. Both players are listed as doubtful; Clarke with groin soreness and Porter with knee soreness. Neither injury is considered to be serious, but the Grizzlies are taking precautions, according to league sources. There is still a possibility Clarke and Porter could play in the preseason.
