  1. Probably so, but I was more impressed with their offseason work - may not be all-stars and glitzy, but it's still impressive.
  2. I feel bad the Jazz lost Hayward, but they have been working this offseason. Drafted Donovan Mitchell, Tony Bradley, Nigel Williams-Goss. Signed Thabo Sefolosha, Epke Udoh and Jonas Jerebko. Resigned Joe Ingles. Traded for Ricky Rubio Add to a roster of Rudy Gobert, Dante Exum, and Rodney Hood. (And Derrick Favors if he decides he wants to play) It's not the worst offeason effort I've seen.
  3. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    I like that signing. Betrans is looking good in SL too.
  4. Draft And Free Agency '17

    The question is can they find a team willing to take Wright or even Ennis and Daniels? The 'problem' is almost always clear, but the 'solution' may not be attainable.
  5. MEM Summer League Thread

    Kind of agree with most of this - from what it looks like to me there is a lot of raw ability for most of these guys, but they need some serious gym time and weight room time. I actually like the potential of Simmons - if he can get a bit stronger and start to knock down that outside shot. Brooks needs to change his body per se - needs serious strength and conditioning overhaul - it's not his basketball ability that is going to hold him back. Davis/Martin lack what most "big" men lack these days - go to post moves. A turnaround or faceup jumper ain't it either. Learn a baby hook or an up an under or even a pump fake and drive. Davis shooting from 10+ feet out is just bad basketball.
  6. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    opinion or hearing something?
  7. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Actually sounds doable for both sides. BOS is gonna need at least one more interior player.
  8. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    Depends on a lot of player development factors, which it appears is what the FO and coaching staff are betting on as well. Could be good, could be disastrous.
  9. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    I don't see how anyone could be down on taking a 1 year shot on Tyreke for $3 million.
  10. Are the Grizzlies FO Sleeping?

    They gave up Bradley to make signing room for Hayward. To get anything back, much less an NBA starter, is gravy on their end. They are getting more versatile by the day - not a bad 8 man. Al Horford Marcus Morris Jae Crowder Gordon Hayward Isaiah Thomas Jaylen Brown Jayson Tatum Marcus Smart
  11. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Cs getting bigger at the 2-4 spots since they know the 1 and 5 they will be undersized. Bet they aren't done just yet either.
  12. McLemore it is

    Yep - I watched the show on ESPN about it. Somehow I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone who got to spend millions of dollars and live the NBA lifestyle of women and clubs and travel, etc. At worst, they do what the rest of of us have to do - get a student loan and go back to school, get a degree and get a job. Unless they are absolute idiots, most can get a job in coaching or broadcasting anyway.
  13. McLemore it is

    Yep. Even if he plays his way out of the league, he can go on for another 10 years making money - G-League, overseas, etc. I believe he is already vested in the pension plan too - think it's 3 full seasons. https://www.soa.org/Files/Research/Projects/research-2015-nba-pension-stats.pdf NBA also matches 401K. NBA players are eligible to participate in the league’s pension plan, and become fully vested after three years of service in the NBA. Players can begin drawing from their pensions at age 50, but stand to benefit greatly if they hold off until they turn 62 years old. For players who choose to collect at 50 years old, the minimum yearly benefit is $19,160, and the maximum yearly benefit – for players with 10 or more years in the league – is $60,000 per year. If a player waits until his 62nd birthday to collect, their minimum yearly benefit would be $60,000 and their maximum yearly benefit would be $200,000. The NBA also has an elective 401(k) available to players with a employer matching program that allows the league’s contributions to significantly exceed player contributions.
