As we play out the final weeks of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference with the Memphis Grizzlies.
The New York Knicks made the first big splash of free agency by signing center Tyson Chandler. Chandler is the defensive presence the Knicks need to support the offensive minded front court studs Amare Stoudamire and Carmelo Anthony. Chandler wasn't cheap, so the Knicks had to release point guard Chauncey Billups, further weakening an already questionable backcourt. New York looks to have filled that void by coming to terms with free agent guard Baron Davis.
