  1. All Time Grizz Squad?

    Conley/Stoudamire/JWill Allen/Miller/Mayo Gay/Battier/Posey ZBo/Pau/Swift Marc/Lorenzen/Kosta Though I might would drop Kosta and add Brevin.
  2. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

  3. Hello, Dillon Brooks!

    I'm cool with signing Brooks to a full contract. The guys has great intangibles and fantastic looking shot. Ennis is no longer needed in my opinion. Michael Wallace‏Verified account @MyMikeCheck Dillon Brooks impressed Grizzlies staff and by showing a bit more athleticism and defensive motor in SL than some skeptics thought he had. @MyMikeCheck His offensive skill set, body & mentality were always seen as mature. That's why Grizz chased trades draft night in 2nd round to get him.
  4. JaM Ain't Going Anywhere

    This situation just baffles me. This is probably the only time he will get a "big" contract. I'm sure he could get a 3+1 deal with the Grizzlies for 32 million done quickly but sounds like his agent really bought into the media hype of 15 million per from someone. All the RFA's are getting far less this off season. I agree that Jam needs to fire his agent ASAP.
  5. Mario Chalmers returns

    The problem is he basically gives up the points he scored on the other end. Would rather have someone that can hit the 3 and hold their own on defense.
  6. Draft And Free Agency '17

    I feel the same. I would take him over Deyonta right now as backup C. JaM just hanging out there is really messing up the front court plans right now.
  7. Draft And Free Agency '17

    He has his dumb moments but looked like he was committed to trying to get better. His shot looked better as the season progressed. At this point (surprisingly) I like Harrison more than Baldwin. Wade doesn't seem to have put anything together to look like more than a d-league guy.
  8. Mario Chalmers returns

    Wallace has had some very questionable moves in the past couple years, especially with dumping Troy Williams and signing Parsons but Conley wanted him specifically and was ready to bail if the team didn't make a major move. I will say Wallace has done a decent job so far this offseason for what he had to work with (which wasn't much). Plus if Jam takes the QO, that gives the team even more flexibility. I'm surprised he actually seems to have pulled the trigger on ending GNG and letting it go full Fizzball. It had to end sometime. Rabb is a 2nd round player and if the rumor is true, I'm a bit sour on him just expecting to have a guaranteed spot/contract. Take your opportunity and earn it. Rio is a low risk move to see what he has left. Mario will be heavily motivated to show that he can still play in this league after major injury. Same can be said about Tyreke's 1 year deal. All Rio has to do is get guys the ball in the right spot and hit open jumpers.
  9. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    Owner bought the team for 85 million and Forbes currently lists it at 1.65 billion. Smart move to sell while the momentum for the NBA is still rolling strong.
  10. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    Seriously dude? Pump the brakes. You are not staff and don't have those privileges. If you impersonate the staff again I will have to remove you from the forums.
  11. Smart for us sure, but not for him. The future is full of unknowns and possible injuries. I would take the first big multiple year offer If I were him.
  12. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    I like the fact that he is doing a 1 year and betting that he will have a good season to show out and get a bigger contract. Players in contract years tend to play really well...who knew.
  13. According to someone in the know (take that with a grain of salt), they say that Jam's offers from other teams have only been 1 year deals and that's the reason he hasn't signed. If true, This really helps the grizzlies keep his number low. I'd try a 3+1 team option at 9 million per year with bonuses for statistical achievements.
  14. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    If the Nets make a big offer for Jam and the Grizzlies don't feel inclined to match to keep, I would love them to put together a sign and trade for Trevor Booker.
  15. I'm pretty sure the Grizzlies thought the Jam thing would get handled quickly. He was supposed to be the first domino to fall then they could see what they had left for ZBo. They weren't expecting someone to offer that big of a contract to ZBo but probably aren't too broken up about it since it forced the end of GNG. The longer the Jam thing played out, the more their "plan" got thrown out. But now waiting out Jam will probably play into their favor and him costing less.
  16. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    I think its a safe place to talk about all NBA free agents. The general NBA section is dead plus its the offseason. Give everyone some slack man jeez. If Subliminal closes the thread I'll open it back up.
  17. Grizzlies Signed Tyreke Evans

    For 3.3 it's a super low gamble. Nice move Wallace. Feels like Baldwin is going to be moved. Team has focused much more development on Harrison.
  18. Draft And Free Agency '17

    I have to assume Jarrell and Wright are on the edge. Also, curious if delay in Jam is hurting him more than anything. Team could start Parsons at PF. Wonder if team has soured on Baldwin this quickly?
  19. Are the Grizzlies FO Sleeping?

    Very cheap deal. Tyreke betting on himself to show out for 1 year. If he stays healthy he should put up good numbers. Actually looked good in Sac this past season.
  20. Draft And Free Agency '17

    1 year 3.3 million dollar deal.
  21. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Geoff Calkins‏Verified account @geoff_calkins Tyreke Evans has agreed to terms with the Grizzlies. He's retuning to Memphis. Story to come.
  22. Grizzlies opponents - 2017 Free agents and trades

    I think I saw the other day that it is now 14 players minimum with the added 2 way contracts.
  23. Draft And Free Agency '17

    No way I would sign Rudy for any amount of money coming off this injury until he proved he can still play at a high level. For a player whose whole game revolves around his athleticism, that injury is a killer. No way he is ready for training camp. Side note: realistically at this point I would be happy matching Jam then chasing CJ Miles with the MLE. Then look to move Wright + Daniels to add some $$ relief.
  24. Draft And Free Agency '17

    The question would be if he would sign here for a MLE level contract when he could also sign with Cleveland for same money. Fizz would have to pull out all the stops to try to lure Wade to Memphis. Maybe a 1+1 deal. Who knows, maybe Pera would be willing to dip into tax number for a season or two. Zbo, TA, and Carter would probably be willing to sign vet minimums then. Conley/Harrison Wade/Allen Parsons/Carter Jam/Zbo Gasol/Davis
  25. Draft And Free Agency '17

    TA has always gambled on defense but now he doesn't have the speed to recover after the gamble. He is still very talented on crossing his defender and getting to the basket but he can't score within 3 feet so that negates that skill too. At this point I would rather have an above average consistent defender who can hit layups and open 3s starting. But if he takes a league minimum contract, I'd love to have him throughout the season to guard guys like Kawhi and Harden.
