    Trade Likely Coming for Draft

    In today's NBA, I think the line between PF and C positions is being blurred. I have no concerns with Portis switching to C. As far as Davis, who was preventing him from getting more minutes? I'm pretty sure if he contributed more, he would be on the floor more. If he expanded his skillset, he could've taken minutes away from JaM at the 4 You have to seize the opportunity. Look at MarShon Brooks. He came in and took it. He didn't wait for someone to give it to him. We need more players with that confidence and attitude.

    I have to agree with DWash here. Portis increases your talent base. Is he that much better than JaM? I think it remains to be seen but I my opinion is that he is better and I think having a combo of Portis and JaM is better than what we have now. I would send JaM to the bench. It's all about increasing assets and increasing your talent base. I think both he and JaM are clearly better than Davis and Martin. I also agree that the status of Davis and/or Martin should have no impact whatsoever in the calculus of acquiring front court players whether via trade or draft. We need more talent and more depth and those guys are expendable. This team won 22 games and they had every opportunity to step in and put up big numbers to show they belonged in the league but instead they put up ho hum numbers.

    If Kawhi Leonard doesn't want to be in SA (which is larger, cleaner and nicer than Memphis) with a franchise that has won several rings, why would he come to Memphis and stay in Memphis-a franchise that drafted Thabeet with the 2nd pick? He's allegedly stated that he wants to be in NY or LA(his hometown), why in the world would he want to be in Memphis with the trash we have on this roster?

    I'm at about 90% confidence level that we will select MPJ at #4 and the trade down with either Orlando or Chicago and get Wendell Carter Jr in some deal. I just get the feeling that this is what will happen.

    If we could get him for that sure but I don't think they want any of our junk nor do I think Parsons is a Thibs type of guy. If they want to dump him just to dump him and shorten their salary commitments while having no intention of playing Parsons, it could work.

    I introduce to you-Chad Forcier. A guy who has made a living developing NBA players.

    I don't like his contract but we hired Chad Forcier who is known for developing players, in particular Kawhi Leonard and worked with Aaron Gordon and Fournier in Orlando. Not only do they have Forcier but they have 2 assistants dedicated to player development. I think you would see a different player here but that's just me. I don't think he had anything like that in Minny. He was just thrown out there and told to figure it out. Also, Thibs grinds on people- players and front office. He did it in Chicago and is now wearing down players in Minny. That style gets old real quick. It's not just Wiggins struggling under Thibs, it's also KAT. I take Butler's words with a grain of salt. He and Thibs are made for each other and I think he wants the spotlight but just my opinion. I think he would be a different player here with what we have put in place. His contract may be bad but think of it this way, he would be making the same thing that Parsons and McLemore will make here next year. At least he scores and gives you something as opposed to those two duds.

    Eight Assistant Coaches

    i've never paid much attention to how many asst NBA teams carry but 8 seem pretty high and 2 are solely dedicated to player development. Colleges generally carry 3 asst as a rule of thumb but in the NBA 8 assistants seem high unless you want to develo a lot of younger players.

    Uhh, maybe because it had nothing to do with basketball? Most people don't care what the players do off the court as long as they help their team win. If a tragedy like this comes up, of course I will bring it upand express my condolences but otherwise, it's none of my business. Exactly

    Money typically doesn't change people. It simplify amplifies who you really are and allows you more opportunity to be that person. With that being said, there's tons of people with money who do foolish things. A lot of people in this country with money didn't get it the most honest way.

    Uhh, ok, yeah, sure Exactly. People are caught up in this Curry comparison for some reason and totally ignore how his stats fell in the second half of last season when teams actually had videotape on him and scouted him. The athletes in the NBA are bigger, faster, stronger than the Big 12 and this is a full time job so he will constantly be scouted. People seem to think any guard under 6'4" who shoots 3 pointers is the next Curry. Well, bold is not the word that I would use.

    So the Grizz now have 8 assistant coaches: Jerry Stackhouse, Nick Van Exel Chad Forcier Greg Buckner Vitaly Potapenko Adam Mazarei J.J. Outlaw Kevin Burleson Seems like we ae focusing on development. Why not just dump Mike, Marc and Parsons and start over.
