The Grizzlies have some critical decisions to make. They have the 22nd overall pick in a talent-rich draft and a desperate need for perimeter help. They need to a scoring guard to supplement Courtney Lee and a small forward to replace Tayshaun Prince, who has one year left on his contract. They may need to negotiate a long term deal with Randolph, who can opt-out of the final year of his contract this summer. Memphis is at a crossroads, and more than anything the team needs a strong, experienced voice to lead them.
