The Phoenix Suns have dominated all season long and currently sit at the top of the NBA standings, but the Memphis Grizzlies are right behind them with the second-best record in the league this year. 

Going from a young team with a bright future that clawed their way into the playoffs as the 8-seed in the West to being a true championship threat this season is quite a remarkable turnaround for the Grizzlies and a lot of their success is because of the play of Ja Morant. 

In his third NBA season, Morant has elevated himself to superstar status, but he is not the only productive member of this roster. 

Desmond Bane, Jaren Jackson Jr., Steven Adams, Dillon Brooks, De’Anthony Melton and so many others have stepped up all year long to make the Grizzlies one of the most balanced teams on both ends of the court this season.

Memphis is one of three teams in the league to rank inside the Top-10 in both offensive and defensive rating and projected to be the 2-seed in the Western Conference as of right now, they will be a tough team to beat in the seven-game series. 

No matter how the season ends for the Grizzlies, GM Zach Kleiman and this front-office will enter the offseason trying to figure out what the final piece of their championship puzzle is. 

They are right on the verge of being a real NBA Finals threat, but it does seem like Memphis is missing something, primarily on the wing. 

Adding that extra little bit of firepower on both ends of the court will go a long way for this franchise, which is why they could look to get involved in trade talks for Jerami Grant In the offseason.

The Grizzlies are projected to have close to $20 million in open cap space with the contracts of Kyle Anderson, Tyus Jones and Jarrett Culver expiring, giving them a clear shot at possibly adding another high-level talent to pair with the likes of Morant, Bane and Jackson Jr. 

Given his contributions in Detroit on both ends of the court, Jerami Grant is viewed as a high-level two-way forward in this league that can take on many different roles for his team. 

Could Grant be the answer for the Grizzlies to finally ascend to being a championship threat? Let’s take a look at how Memphis could make this trade work in the offseason while keeping most of their core intact.
