There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Memphis Grizzlies and Milwaukee Bucks.
And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Grizzlies and the Bucks.
Grayson Allen gained widespread attention as a standout player at Duke University, where he played from 2014 to 2018 under head coach Mike Krzyzewski. During his time at Duke, Allen was instrumental in leading the team to a national championship in 2015 and quickly became one of the premier players in college basketball.
Allen was drafted in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft by the Utah Jazz. Although he primarily served as a backup guard with the Jazz, Allen’s contributions off the bench strengthened the team’s depth.
After one year with Grizzlies, Allen was traded to the Bucks where he has assumed a consistent starting role, averaging over 10 points per game.

Pau Gasol was selected 3rd overall by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2001 NBA Draft but was promptly traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. In his rookie season, he won the NBA Rookie of the Year award, setting the stage for a decorated NBA career.
Gasol’s time in Memphis solidified him as one of the franchise’s top players, but a trade to the Lakers in 2008 would elevate his status further.
Joining forces with Kobe Bryant, Gasol played a pivotal role in the Lakers’ back-to-back NBA championships in 2009 and 2010. Beyond the Lakers, Gasol had stints with the Bulls, Spurs, Bucks, and Trail Blazers.

Jae Crowder is an NBA player known for his toughness and versatility. He was drafted 34th overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2012 NBA Draft, but was immediately traded to the Dallas Mavericks where he spent the first part of his career.
Crowder has been something of an NBA journeyman, playing for several teams including the Celtics, Cavaliers, Jazz, Grizzlies, Heat, Suns and Bucks. Despite changing teams frequently, Crowder has consistently been valued for his ‘3-and-D skills’ (three-point shooting and defense), as well as his ability to play both forward positions.
He has played crucial roles in deep playoff runs for several teams, including the Miami Heat in 2020, where he helped the team reach the NBA Finals, and the Phoenix Suns in 2021, also reaching the NBA Finals.
Garrett Temple was undrafted out of LSU in the 2009 NBA Draft but worked his way into the league and has developed an impressive 13-year career as a journeyman.
He has played for multiple NBA teams (11 in total), including the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles Clippers, Washington Wizards, and Brooklyn Nets. His role has primarily been as a defensive specialist and a veteran presence in the locker room.
He’s been a key contributor on many of the teams he’s played on and has even started in almost 300 games in his career.
Beno Udrih is a player from Slovenia who had a solid career in the NBA. After starting his career in Europe, Udrih was selected in the first round of the 2004 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs.
Udrih had the privilege of being part of the San Antonio Spurs’ championship-winning team in his rookie year and once again in his second season. Learning under the guidance of Gregg Popovich and playing alongside legendary Spurs Tim Duncan, Manu Ginóbili, and Tony Parker, Udrih gained valuable experience early in his career.
After his time with the Spurs, Udrih played for several teams in the NBA, including the Kings, Bucks, Magic, Knicks, Grizzlies, and Heat. Known for his crafty playmaking and steady shooting, Udrih provided reliable depth at the point guard position throughout his career.
