  1. Draft And Free Agency '17

  2. iF i Was TA and Z

    This is their way to end the core 4 without it looking like we let them walk for nothing. I'm okay with that. I'd love it if they took the minimum to retire with the team but won't be super sad to see them go either.
  3. Draft And Free Agency '17

    I think Selden needs to be a SG priority for the team. He showed he can play solid defense and slash to the basket. He just needs to work more on his outside shot and he can easily be a solid SG for the team moving forward. Since the main scoring focus will be between Conley, Parsons, and Gasol, we need solid role players like Selden who can defend and spread the floor. Plus we can get him on a cheap contract. This is why I would be fine letting Tony and Zach go, matching Jam, then going after someone like Patty Mills with the MLE to add a second play maker and scrappy defender.
  4. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Assuming CP3+Griffin leave LA and Hayward+Hill leave Utah then I could see: Warriors Spurs Rockets Grizzlies Thunder Wolves Blazers Nuggets
  5. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Griffin opting out. Wonder if that will help other teams chasing him and us try to work a deal with Jam quickly.
  6. Predictions on 2017 Free Agents

    I fully expect Brooks and Rabb to be 2 way contracts this season so they would occupy #16 and #17. This would allow us to sign an MLE player and keep that #15 spot open.
  7. Draft Day 2017

    I get a Robert Covington vibe from the guy. He might not be blazing fast but you can tell the guy carries a lot of force with those moves.
  8. Draft Day 2017

    Agreed. They have the ability to pull that off and still stay top of the east for a while. Especially if Lebron decides to leave Cleveland and head to LA.
  9. Draft And Free Agency '17

    This would be a nice way to get into the draft. I like Troy and he had some fun moments this past season but he is useless on defense.
  10. Draft Day 2017

    Should be pretty easy for them. They have a ton of 1st rounders.
  11. Predictions on 2017 Free Agents

    I think I would be okay letting both Zbo and Tony go. I hear you Ndq0327 about Zbo but if we decide to keep Wright, he could be a backup big with Deyonta. The rotation of Jam+Marc and Wright+Davis would be better because of length and speed. Zbo has his moments but has become so **** slow. Teams exploited this way too much during the season which really added stress to Marc having to cover more on defense.
  12. 2017 Grizzlies Summer League

    Summer league is right around the corner: Really excited to see Selden, Rade, and Davis. Crossing my fingers for Baldwin to show any sort of development and growth. Somewhat losing hope on Martin.
  13. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams would be amazing to get. You could try Wright+Ennis+Daniels+2 second rounders. These teams are getting desperate to setup superteams. Should be able to nab a couple solid role players.
  14. Draft And Free Agency '17

    Team is definitely working to give them as much space as possible for Jam. Really curious what they are thinking for Zbo's value. Hope we can retain Jam at a decent price and get one of Patty Mills, Tyreke, or Patrick Beverly.
  15. Tweet about "Pasons for Porzingis"

    Last I saw reported, they were offering Porz to the Suns for #4 and Devin Booker.
  16. 2017 Grizzlies Summer League

    This. We won't lose BOTH Zbo and Jam...and even if that happens, Wright would be next in line to start beside Marc. There is a reason he and Marc got time together during last season.
  17. Can We Help The Cavs Get Butler?

    Love would be an awesome player in Fizz's system but Chandler has zero trade value. Until he starts putting up major stats, he is a useless trade chip. Right now if you want any big name player in the NBA, it will cost you Marc.
  18. Draft And Free Agency '17

    There aren't a lot of options out there for what we could afford. Tyreke might be one of those guys you could go after with the MLE. At this point you just have to take a bit of a gamble on some guys since you have already put all your eggs into this injury basket to begin with. Eric Gordon is the perfect example of a guy who has been plagued with injuries and had a very successful season with Houston. Tyreke has good size and you could start him next to Mike to help share the play making. Especially if Mike is fully becoming the first option and will be off ball a lot.
  19. Fisher/Barnes

    You can report to me. Thought most things that are reported are non matters.
  20. 2017 Grizzlies Summer League

    I'm aware of the games he put up in the DLeague. I just meant I'm losing hope on him being a contributor to the Grizzlies. No doubt he has talent but it feels like his window on the team is closing.
  21. I think Lebron might come after Marc Gasol

    Yeah I think CLE will retool for sure. I think Love will be gone. Curious if LeBron would want Kyrie gone if that meant getting CP3.
  22. Draft And Free Agency '17

    I wouldn't be surprised to see TA on the Cavs next season. LeBron needs someone on the team he can use just as a defender to help slow down the Warriors. It just seems a little too perfect of a scenario. He would easily replace Richard Jefferson.
  23. Draft And Free Agency '17

    The package you could go after is Marc + Ennis for BOS #1 + our 2019 pick + Avery Bradley + Marcus Smart + Crowder. I wouldn't take anything less. You would then have to find a starting center though. Not a lot of options out there in the FA class that we could afford unless you think Wright and Davis can handle it. This would be the opportunity for Davis to make the jump.
  24. Draft And Free Agency '17

    I think that would be a very cheap band aid but might work with the offensive focus being Marc, Mike, Chandler. We just really need a 4 that can rebound and shoot the 3 at a decent clip. I think the focus on more offense over defense is upon us. I also like the idea of Patrick Patterson too as a cheap option. Two other names that might work if we lose Jam would be Ersan Ilyasova and Serge Ibaka.
  25. Should Grizz Entertain Offers For Chandler Parson?

    Hopefully seeing the money that went to Baze and those role players last year will scare off teams from spending huge amounts for non top 50 players. I could see us keeping Jam at 12 but then again I could see a team offer him 16 per. It is a weird time.
