By meerna Jun12,2024

The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to add to their midfield depth and view Knicks big Precious Achiuwa as a potential “dream” free agent target who could add to their rotation.

By the numbers

  • Achiuwa averaged 12.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for the Knicks.
  • He made approximately $4.4 million last season, and the Grizzlies’ MLE of $5.2 million in taxpayer dollars could be a raise for him.

Yes but

Isaiah Hartenstein and Mitchell Robinson, Achiuwa’s frontcourt teammates, were also considered Memphis targets in the offseason.

Game status

  • The Grizzlies need to strengthen their center position after replacing key players.
  • Achiuwa’s numbers improved significantly after joining the Knicks, showing valuable rebounding and defensive skills.

What’s next

If acquired, Achiuwa could be a significant contributor to a more competitive Memphis team next season, especially with his energy, rebounding and potential to secure a center forward role alongside Jaren Jackson Jr.

Bottom line

Precious Achiuwa appears to be a promising and profitable option for the Grizzlies to meet their center needs and increase their competitiveness in the upcoming season.
