Well i have been thinking around about what can do the grizzlies to improve their team and try to be a contender soon. this are some of my notes:

-Trade the 4th pick for 8 and 12 of clippers. Why do that ? well, i think they can get 2 valuable players with that position. they should have more depth and power from the bench look what they can get:
With the 8 they would get butler, wagner, jared jeffries or Maybyner Hilario
with the 12 they would get Borchardt, Amare Stoudamire, or may be Qyntel Woods

i Would draft Jeffries with the 8 and Borchardt with the 12 to fill center.
with my 2nd rounders i would draft a 7 footer and the best prospect available
Afther that, i think they should trade Swift,Dickerson,Anderson to Miami for Eddie Jones and Eddie House or Laphonso ellis
Afther that, make a strong rush for bench Help in the FA, some FAs may be interested on join Grizzlies now than Jerry West its running the show, i think they should go for a veteran SG for depth on bench, here are some available
BruceBowen (Player option)
Bryon Russell
Erick Strickland

i think they can go signed for the veteran exception or even less. Look at what they would have:
J-Will/Knight
Jones/Russell?
Battier/Jeffries/Laphonso Ellis?
Gasol/Long/Massemburg
Wright/Borchardt/#32pick?

Jeffries can play both forward positions, battier can play 2 or 3, russell can play D and knock down some shots. And i would play Knight instead of Jayson in crunch time due to his ball handling, even if he is not a good shoter.
obviously its hard to get all this done but i think a option. this theam probably would be better than Seattle, Phoenix and Utah and should try to make a playoff run this year (they are not going to have a 1st round Draft Pick next year, so try to win most now)

post your replies about how possible is this, or more hints about how to improve memphis team.
