“We couldn’t be more excited to add CP and Logic to our Grizz Gaming team,” said Grizz Gaming General Manager Lang Whitaker. “CP was at the top of our draft list, and to have him fall to us at the seventh pick felt fortuitous. Logic was someone we’ve been watching for years, who brings not only elite defense but also great offense. We can’t wait for Logic and CP to get to Memphis and to make their 2K League debuts with us this season.”
Grizz Gaming also picked up a future first round pick in a draft night trade with Bucks Gaming. Grizz Gaming sent the 23rd overall pick in the 2023 NBA 2K League Draft along with a 2024 second round pick originally belonging to Lakers Gaming to the Bucks. In return, the Bucks gave the Grizzlies the 38th overall pick in the 2023 draft, as well as a first round pick in the 2024 Draft.
