When the Memphis Grizzlies get their full starting five on the court, that lineup is going to be a handful.
Parsons is being brought along slowly following his latest knee surgery, but in an update on the team’s Twitter account notes he is now playing 5-on-5 and hopes to be on the court “soon.”
Parsons also says he hasn’t lost a step. We may need to see that before we fully buy in.
Memphis needs him — and Allen — on the court as soon as possible. While their starting five can be a force, there is not a lot of depth on the Grizzlies’ roster. Plus Parsons provides the floor-spacing shooting and second shot creator the Grizzlies desperately need.
