Both of this year's draft picks (Jamaal Franklin and Janis Timma) will be attending alongside a few other guys from last season's roster: Jon Leuer, Tony Wroten, Willie Reed and Donte Green. The roster rounds out with some well-known college players and some guys from overseas: Vander Blue, Matt Howard, Laurence Bowers, Jack Cooley, Darington Hobson and Gerald Robinson. The team will play in pool to start, then they will be seeded and play in a playoff type of tournament, which will end with a summer-league champion. This is the first year some team will actually win the summer league. Here is the schedule so far:

July 13 – Chicago vs. Memphis (7:00pm CT)
July 14 – Cleveland vs. Memphis (7:00pm CT)
July 16 – Phoenix vs. Memphis (7:30pm CT)

It will be good to see the two new guys play. Jamaal Franklin is an elite athlete and will be exciting to watch, and Timma can supposedly really play. Throw in the guys from last year's team, Grizzlies' fans will be able to get a good look at some guys they're not accustomed to seeing play.
