Does anyone know why Grizzle's games are no longer being shown in Nashville on Comcast Fox Sports channel 1676? I've contacted Comcast and Fox, no answer

But Dallas pursued restricted free agent Chandler Parsons, eventually landing him for $46 million over three years.

 

"They didn't have anything left. Chandler took it all!" Carter said with a laugh. "What was left there, to what was offered [in Memphis] with this type of team.

So late that one of these questions already been answered, but good questions/info nonetheless.
 

Very old information. Nothing is mentioned about the Grizzlies entering the draft to pick up two 2nd round picks. Nothing is mentioned about Rade Zagoric coming over which takes another roster spot. Z-Bo is already gone and likely Tony Allen is gone as well. 

Was an interesting article back in March when it was written however.

Early Predictions for the Western Conference

Grizzlies are listed as fighting for the 8th playoff spot

Memphis Grizzlies – 35 Wins

It appears – for now, at least – the Memphis Grizzlies are not ready for a full rebuild, despite letting two of their six most used players from last season leave in free agency, and Tony Allen appearing to up that number to three.

But they still have a formidable point guard, big man combination. That alone should should prevent them from being terrible. It will be interesting if former lottery picks Ben McLemore and Tyreke Evans can rejuvenate their careers in Memphis.

The media is almost always low on the Grizzlies.  Two seasons ago they picked Utah ahead of Memphis and they did not even make the playoffs and last year most had the Grizz missing the post season.

No way in hell the wolves win 50 games. Lol. That team was 31 wins last year. They will be lucky to win 45 games. They won't come close to 50 wins.

And the grizzlies have two players in their prime, media seems to always forget that. They are always looking for the new thing. They did it every year with the spurs.

FACTS.  These guys don't even watch any Grizzlies games.  How do they get their jobs?

So we will get told that they are all three injured and will miss most of the season?

Zach Lowe: Rating NBA tiers: Warriors to worst and every team between

Quote

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES

Betting against Marc Gasol and Mike Conley feels like betting against Rick Carlisle: You're always wrong, until the one year the wheels finally quiver, and you're right. This feels like that season.

The Grizzlies exchanged Tony Allen, Zach Randolph and Vince Carter -- quietly a member of their most productive lineups -- for Ben McLemore, Tyreke Evans, Mario Chalmers (coming off an Achilles tear) and some young dudes who won't play. Wayne Selden and James Ennis are the likely wing starters by default. They may come out ahead on secondary playmaking; Selden has shown surprising two-way promise. But a lot of youngish guys have to develop -- fast. They hope the exchange includes getting a healthy Chandler Parsons to replace last season's unplayable tin man; with Randolph gone, Memphis needs Parsons at least as a backup power forward. But at this point, you have to assume the worst.

Gasol is almost 33, Conley is coming off a career year, and the Grizz have allowed a frightening number of opponent 3-point attempts for two seasons running. What happens if more of them go in? What happens if Memphis doesn't break math and win a preposterous number of toss-up games for the zillionth straight season? The Grizzlies have rebuffed all calls about Gasol and Conley; does that change if they sink fast?

But they pull that close-game magic every season. It is in their basketball DNA. They will be rock solid on defense. Gasol and Conley wring something out of every half-court trip, and David Fizdale will have these guys busting it.

On paper, they are a lottery team. I am picking them to miss the playoffs.

Now go watch them magic up 43 wins.

I see nothing wrong with him saying that. I'm sure he feels like he needs to be living up to that contract just as much as anyone. Seems more like Tillery trying to get clicks by stirring up a little drama. Seems pretty bush league to me.
