  1. Greater Memphis Grind

    Jarrell Martin to Orlando

    I agree with Kevin Lipe on twitter, even if its a trade and release, I like it because we get off of Martin's contract without giving up a pick.

    Jarrell Martin to Orlando

    looks like probable release? @MyMikeCheck 4m4 minutes ago Michael Wallace Retweeted Adrian Wojnarowski Move primarily saves Grizzlies about $1 million in cap/tax space. Martin, a first-round pick 3 years ago, was due $2.4M this season. Johnson set to earn $1.3M. Grizz may also receive rights to guard Tyler Harvey, who's been overseas. Savings against tax/cap even if Dakari is cut. @HerringtonNBA 5m5 minutes ago Chris Herrington Retweeted Adrian Wojnarowski One million dollar cap difference this season. Would allow Griz to sign Shelvin Mack and stay under tax, presumably cutting Johnson or Harrison. With Jackson/Parsons/Anderson/Casspi all candidates at the 4, Martin was getting squeezed.

    @wojespn 45s45 seconds ago Memphis has agreed to trade Jarrell Martin and cash to Orlando for Dakari Johnson, league sources tell ESPN.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    If Woj writes an article about it, it's most likely all but done.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    @peteredmiston 3m3 minutes ago Shelvin Mack fits the criteria we've seen the Grizzlies emphasize as they build: Maturity, Positivity, Leadership, Mentorship. He's a solid player but, as w/ Temple & even Anderson, a high-IQ, positive locker room example. Having been w/ asst coach @NBAcoaching in ORL helps too. edit: and here are his career stats https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/m/macksh01.html

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    @wojespn Free agent guard Shelvin Mack and the Memphis Grizzlies are progressing in talks on a one-year deal, league sources tell ESPN.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    We're going back to the GNG years where we may not have scored well, but will defend well enough every night to be in it with a chance to win it. I'll take that over last year watching 30 point blowouts while our guys watched people run down the lane and dunk.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Pretty much this. @peteredmiston Grizzlies excited to: 1. Get a wing who is a proven player 2. Put a high-character leader in the locker room to help young players 3. Clear up roster crunch and get down to 15 Kings excited to: 1. Um 2. Er 3. Get a second round pick?

    per the organization's mouthpiece: @MyMikeCheck Grizzlies roster up front now trends smaller at the 5 spot. Marc is only true center, but Jaren and JaMychal will play at center in three-big rotation, along with Ivan as possibility.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    media seem to be pretty happy with us. @daldridgetnt Meanwhile…Grizzlies are having one hell of an offseason. @Jon_Roser Grizzlies have added a bunch of versatile defenders this offseason (JJJ, Jevon, Casspi, Kyle Anderson, and now Garrett Temple). I don't know what the ceiling is offensively but they will defend every game and, if you defend every game, you give yourself a chance to win @GaryParrishCBS The Kings just traded one solid player to the Grizzlies for two bad players. Thank you, Sacramento. @ZachLowe_NBA .@GTemp17 has quietly been a solid wing for a few seasons now. In all the "pick your 8 West playoff teams" barroom debates I had in Vegas, Memphis rarely came up. People are sleeping on them a bit if Mike and Marc are healthy

    Not that this would change my mind on the trade at all but we did give up a 2nd rounder. @HerringtonNBA 58s58 seconds ago More Sacramento getting a 2021 second-rounder in deal with Grizzlies, per source.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    a little more info from the Memphis side: @MyMikeCheck Michael Wallace Retweeted Michael Wallace Hearing Grizzlies also sending cash out in deal, which presumably allows Kings flexibility to perhaps buy out Davis/McLemore. All three players on expiring contracts, but Temple is a keeper for the Grizzlies and gives them solid combo guard.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    most of the media thinks Sacramento pulled another Sacramento and did something dumb. Consensus seems to be we are getting a solid role player who is a good locker room guy as well. The big thing is that it was a 2 for 1, so we are now at 15 roster spots without having to cut anyone.
  14. @wojespn 2m2 minutes ago More Sacramento is finalizing a trade to send forward Garrett Temple to Memphis for Ben McLemore, Deyonta Davis and cash, league sources tell ESPN.

    Vegas Summer League

    I find it very amusing that the always-negative Peter Edmiston calls out Rabb/Davis/Carter, but doesn't say a word about JJJ's struggles the past few games because he is absolutely in love with JJJ. Peter gets a bit biased sometimes. https://www.commercialappeal.com/story/sports/nba/grizzlies/2018/07/11/memphis-grizzlies-jevon-carter-deyonta-davis-ivan-rabb/776376002/
