News: Gasol will look to be more aggressive this year, the Grizzly Bear Blues reports.
Impact: During media day Gasol made it clear that he plans to be more aggressive offensively this year. Given that the Grizzlies figure to shoot more three-pointers this year, Gasol should see more single coverage than he has in recent years, and it doesn't appear he'll be shy to go work on offense if that is indeed the case. Coach Dave Joerger made it clear he expects more from Gasol this season as well. He has always been lauded for his unselfish nature, but if he starts putting up a few more points per game without dropping off in the other categories he'd certainly be in for the best season of his career. He was also very reassuring about the fact that he loves Memphis and is not worried about his contract situation. Continue to target Gasol in the first few rounds on draft-day, as he provides consistently solid production in every major category except three-pointers.

News: The Memphis Grizzlies say Beasley is among several additions to their training-camp roster. The Grizzlies announced the addition of the 25-year-old Beasley on Thursday.
Impact: Beasley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 draft, averaged 7.9 points, 3.1 rebounds and 15.1 minutes while playing 55 games last season with the Miami Heat. He owns career averages of 13.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 409 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns and Heat.

News: Beasley will join the Grizzlies in training camp on a non-guaranteed contract, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Impact: He worked out with the Grizzlies this week and saw an opportunity to make the roster as a backup power forward, as other viable chances to break camp with a team were hard to come by for Beasley. After playing in 55 regular season games for the Heat in 2014, he was left out of the team's playoff rotation -- a sign of just how far the former No. 2 overall pick in 2008 has slipped in his NBA career. He is always a threat to score while on the floor, but often fails to play within team concepts at both ends of the court. Jon Leuer will be his main competition at the four during camp, but even if he makes the team, he would likely need an injury to Zach Randolph in order to start seeing fantasy-relevant minutes.

News: Lucas has agreed to a deal with the Grizzlies, Sportando reports.
Impact: After averaging 13.9 points and 4.6 assists per game in the NBA D-League last season, Lucas averaged 8.3 points (48.0 FG, 33.3 3Pt, 87.5 FT), 2.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 0.5 steals in 16 minutes per game during four games with the Grizzlies' Orlando Summer League squad, and now he has a shot to make the team. With Nick Calathes suspended to start the season it's possible the Grizzlies are looking to add a third point guard behind Mike Conley and Beno Udrih, but regardless, Lucas likely won't warrant much consideration in fantasy and can be safely avoided on draft-day.

News: Whiteside signed a non-guaranteed deal for training camp with the Grizzlies, Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Impact: Whiteside could wind up making the Grizzlies given that they only have two centers on the roster right now. However, even if he does earn a deal beyond training camp, he'll be behind Marc Gasol and Kosta Koufos on the depth chart. Whiteside can safely be avoided in all leagues on draft-day.
