The Grizzlies tip off their first summer league game at 7 p.m. CST tonight. They will take on the Chicago Bulls. It will be a great opportunity for the Grizzlies to see what they have in some younger players.

The Bulls have a pretty solid summer team that incorporates several players from last season's playoff roster. Marquis Teague and Malcom Thomas both were on the bench during last year's playoff, although they each saw spot minutes here and there. They will join another playoff veteran in Andrew Goudlock.  Goudlock has been a rotation players for the Los Angeles Lakers for a couple of years now. He is likely the best player on the Bulls' summer league squad. It will be good for Tony Wroten and Jamaal Franklin to see time against NBA level guards, and Jon Leuer will get to try his luck against Malcom Thomas an NBA caliber big man.  The roster also has THE Ryan Allen, younger brother to Tony Allen.  He will be a fun watch for Memphians. Carlos Boozer's younger brother Charles will also play.  The roster rounds out with Champ Oguchi, Andy Rautins, Kyle Gibson, Matt Janning, Tony Snell, Deon Thompson, Erik Murphy and Matthew Bryan-Amaning.

The Grizzlies also play Sunday at 7 p.m. CST and Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. CST.  All their games will be broadcast on NBA TV.
