  1. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    We're not paying JAM 10 million.year because nobody else is either. Look at this http://www.spotrac.com/nba/cap/ If I'm reading this right, only 76ers could even offer JAM that money, and they sure don't need another power forward/Big man. Suns could offer 7 and then everybody else can't offer more than MLE without a sign and trade. So . . .JAM has 0 leverage at this point and market for him is not 10 million
  2. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    At some point the front office should reach out with some sort of offer. Or talks. JAM is our projected starting forward. he's never getting 10/year from anywhere, and 8 seems a stretch, and it won't be any better next year. Get this done already
  3. Best Guess Opening Day Roster

    true, they are better too. Forgot about Millsap. Why does talent only ever flow to the Western conference? George, Butler, Millsap etc etc
  4. Best Guess Opening Day Roster

    Maybe not but several teams are also much worse. Out of non-playoff teams, I'd say only T-Wolves are significantly better Clippers and Jazz are way worse. Spurs take a step backward too. Thunder, Rockets better. If anything, to me, it looks like grizzlies are in about the same position they were if not better. Unlikely they can win a playoff series though
  5. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Give him a more reasonable offer like 7 mil/2 years + team option for 3rd and see if he takes it
  6. Best Guess Opening Day Roster

    You could just cut daniels, baldwin, , and Martin without any major repercussions if you wanted. 1 year 1.something million salary is not a big deal to lose. Could also just cut Ennis too and take a 3 million hit. They're all expiring contracts
  7. Best Guess Opening Day Roster

    1. Conley 2. Parsons 3. Gasol 4. Davis 5. Jam 6. Evans 7. Mclemore 8. Seldon 9. Brooks 10. Rade 11. Harrison 12. Wright 13. Chalmers 14. Ennis 15. Baldwin 2-way contracts 16. Rabb 17. Simmons Makes the most sense to me. Cut Martin because it's doubtful you want to give him a contract next year. Chalmers gives you ballhandling and shooting + better defense than Daniels (assuming Chalmers healthy). Front office won't get rid of Baldwin this soon. I don't subscribe that we need another big. You have 2 centers on roster + several players you could use to defend the 4.
  8. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    So, what? The grizzlies should get TA back stat who's so amazing he still doesn't have a contract? What the elite teams have are not elite defenders but elite 2 way players like Kawhi, Draymond, Iguodala, Lebron, Avery Bradley, John Wall, Chris Paul etc Elite wing defenders who can't space the floor are liabilities in the post-season often times See: Allen, Tony Roberson, Andre Smart, Marcus

    I guess. Not sure the knicks are looking to sign a borderline starter quality 4 with big free agent money. Surely they want their cap space available for next summer
  10. What's the Current Lineup?

    Being generous, zbos defense cancels out his offense. And his offense wasn't even that great. He definitely had a few games where he carried us . . . but there were a lot of buckets given up because of slow rotations
  11. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    Seriously. All the money is pretty much gone for free agents. There aren't any dominoes left to fall Jamychal.
  12. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    It's not a comparison to Harden and Curry he's making directly, it's the fact that athleticism is way overrated, still. Not every player has to break people down 1 on 1 or win the dunk contest. A player who understands defense and rotations and how to use his body to create space is usually more successful than somebody with explosive athleticism that doesn't try or doesn't care. If Brooks can hit open corner 3s, take advantage of space created by the offense (not necessarily him going 1-on-1) and make the correct defensive rotations and be an 8th or 9th man, that in and of itself is amazing for a 2nd rounder.
  13. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    1) It can be 2 things 2) Brooks is going to have a better NBA career than anybody we've drafted the past 4 years with the possible exception of deyonta davis. High bball IQ, scoring, and competitiveness are skills that translate well to the NBA Low bball IQ, low motor, poor shooting etc are skills that do not, which you can apply to basically all our other draft picks in varying combinations
