Grizzlies announce 2016 Summer League roster

The Grizzlies have announced their roster for the 2016 Las Vegas Summer League, and it's a fairly exciting group, and one that surprisingly contains JaMychal Green, who played more games than any other Grizzly last year (while fouling at an extremely elevated rate):

I'm particularly excited to see Wade Baldwin, Deyonta Davis, and Andrew Harrison in action (even Summer League level action, where Josh Selby can become a co-MVP). Memphis Tiger fans will no doubt be heartened by the inclusion of Shaq Goodwin and DJ Stephens. Alex Stepheson made some noise for the Iowa Energy last season, and put up some ungodly offensive rebounding numbers in that one game before his Grizzlies 10-day ran out last year. It's an exciting group, in the way Summer League is always exciting: a chance to see the raw materials that may one day be major pieces of the Grizzlies' rotation.
