Amir Coffey (last match stats)
Sean McDermott (last match stats)
1. Sean McDermott
Sean is a long-range threat who performs moves to get open and he can also hit treys on the fast-break. The sharpshooter can also bury mid-range shots and has the moves to make other types of scoring shots too. Sean is one of the candidates as the Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Amir Coffey
Amir is a Forward who uses his length well and has a superb shooting touch. Coffey is also improving in terms of shot selection and has shown that he can be trusted long-term.
3. Ziaire Williams
Ziaire is the 10th pick for Memphis in this year’s draft and this youngster surely has shown that he can shoot from long range and even finish at the rim. Williams may have to fight for his minutes in a Forward lineup that has Kyle Anderson.
4. Jay Scrubb
Scrubb has been short of luck as after having less practise time in a pandemic hit scenario, he was also unable to muster up playing time because of his injury. It will take time for him to adjust and then look for some playing time. He may be seen in the G-League this season.
5. Sam Merill
Merill is a shooter by nature and can also dish it off as a playmaker. Sam may not play minutes for the regular Memphis squad but he has hit strides in terms of rebounding and defense.
6. Jason Preston
07. Shaq Buchanan
08. Keon Johnson
