Grizzlies Get Number 4 Draft Pick

by

No Greg Oden or Kevin Durant for the Grizzles next year. Those two players are certain to be taken by the time the fourth pick comes around in this year's NBA draft.

Though Memphis had the best odds of getting the first pick, their luck was as bad as it could get. With the league's poorest record, the team was assured of no worse than a fourth-place pick. So, in a sense, the worst-case scenario happened.

The Portland Trail Blazers will pick first in the draft, with the Seattle SuperSonics picking second, and the Atlanta Hawks third.
