2010 NBA Draft, 12th Pick: Grizzlies Select Kansas' Xavier Henry

Are you prepared to live in a universe where Memphis GM Chris Wallace makes sensible draft picks? A year removed from last year's Hasheem Thabeet fiasco (although to be fair Thabeet probably won't get sent down to the D-League again...right?), the Grizzlies nabbed 19-year old southpaw Xavier Henry out of Kansas with the 12th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Henry has a smooth shooting stroke, putting in over 40% of his three-point attempts for the Jayhawks in his freshman season, and a strong, NBA-ready body, particularly for such a young player. Along with O.J. Mayo, Henry should give the Grizzlies a very promising backcourt for the future (and just like that, Mike Conley might be out of the picture, with Mayo sliding over as a combo-lead guard).
