#9: Memphis Grizzlies select Stephon Castle 

I love this pick for Memphis, even though Castle said he’s not going to work out for teams that already have a point guard, which is absurd. Can I ask when teenagers who have not played a single second of professional basketball got to start making demands about where they are drafted?  

Despite what Castle might think (how many teams don’t have a point guard by the way?), Memphis would be a perfect spot for him, as he can play with both/either of Ja Morant and Desmond Bane, providing defense on the perimeter and a secondary playmaker.
