The Memphis Grizzlies need to make changes to their roster this offseason.
After losing in the first round of the playoffs to the Los Angeles Lakers, there is a clear issue in Memphis.
They were the second seed in the West and folded in the playoffs.
But, they have been folding in the playoffs for a few years now.
Their team thinks they are a lot better than they are, and that has put a target on their back.
One player that gets most of the hate on the Grizzlies is forward Dillon Brooks.
He is a trash-talker and is always trying to cause problems on the court.
But, the Grizzlies think he is no longer worth having on their roster.
Reports have surfaced that Brooks will not be back in Memphis next season.
He is a free agent and the team has no interest in re-signing him.
Kendrick Perkins thinks the Grizzlies are doing Brooks wrong by making him the fall guy.
Oh I see what’s going on in Memphis. They’re making Dillon Brooks the fall guy. BS! That free culture is who they’ve been the last 3 years. Wasn’t a problem until they got embarrassed. Leadership need some of that smoke too! Carry on..

The Grizzlies are a flawed organization from the top down.
While Brooks does not help matters on the floor, he is only a small part of their problems.
They have an arrogance about them that has been their downfall.
It even seems like they play as a bunch of solo acts in Memphis instead of as a team.
Serious changes need to be made to the culture in Memphis, but that is never easy.
This could be an offseason where we see the front office blow it all up.NEXT: The Grizzlies Have Made An Official Decision About Dillon Brooks
