What a night for Memphis.
The Spurs acquired a future second round pick and cash considerations from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for the draft rights to Kennedy Chandler, who was drafted in the second round of the 2022 NBA Draft with the 38th overall selection.
I think Kennedy Chandler will be on the board at 43 and the Clippers will select some random guy like Moussa Diabate that ends up playing 70 total minutes in the nba

What a moment for Kennedy Chandler. The smile and Grizzlies hat say it all. #Vols
Not at all surprising that some teams were hesitant taking Kennedy Chandler in the first round.
Very surprising that ALL of them felt that way.
They know something we don’t, or they’re just stupid. Time will tell.
Group think dropped Trey Smith down the NFL board. And … yeah.
“I think Kennedy Chandler is really going to surprise some people.”
