MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"The Grizzlies have done a very good job with their team. They're bringing a lot of new players in to a new team, instead of coming back with the old guys. I think they've helped themselves. Memphis is a college town; Shane Battier was the college Player of the Year. People comment on him staying four years, but really, where was he going to go? The first two and a half years, he was just a pretty good player and then he had that great senior season. Coming out? He wouldn't have been drafted!

Pau Gasol's seven feet. He'll play a little power forward, depending on the rules. Then you've got Antonis Fotsis who's really more of a small forward, but he's applied for the draft three times. He wants to play here, but he's not a guy who's very aggressive. I think they'll bring him in and give him a look. Who knows?"
