The issue for Memphis to address: how much they believe in Justise Winslow. Acquired from the Heat last season, he didn't make his debut for the team until late-February, and played in just 26 regular season games due to injuries. Given Winslow's struggles to remain healthy, does Memphis roll the dice and pick up his $13 million option for 2021-22? Or do they decline it, and instead look to use that money to bolster the roster with a veteran who doesn't have similar injury concerns? Just about all of the other pieces needed for the Grizzlies to become a player in the West are there. Using the money that would go to Winslow in order to add another could be what this franchise needs.

Young exploits not only a defender's weaknesses, but his strengths too. Witness any aggressive on-ball defender who tries to blow up a screen for Young, only to hear the referee whistle him for contact. And while it's easy to prioritize getting the ball out of Young's hands, a defense has to extend out to 35 feet to do it, which is suboptimal. It's simply impossible to home in on a single tactic without exposing a vulnerability elsewhere.
