Given statistical production, shooting, and the eye ball test most observers have pegged Ja Morant as the likely #2 pick in the NBA Draft.

Draft Express' Jonathan Givony reported the Grizzlies have indeed settled on Morant.

Source: Barring the unexpected, Memphis Grizzlies front office and ownership appear to have locked in on selecting Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, and are informing parties in Chicago of such. That clears the way for R.J. Barrett to fall to the Knicks at #3.
