    The 2018 Free Agents

    Tyreke signing with Indy. 1 year 12 million.

    Why Do We Need to sign a FA?

    At this point I would prefer to keep that MLE salary open just in case unknown situations show up during the season like some player buyouts. I would like to see the team clear up some of the muddiness of the roster. Something along the lines of JaM+BenMac for Courtney Lee+future 2nd. Balances out the roster and moves JJJ into the starting lineup and gives you an upgrade at starting SG.

    Vegas Summer League

    Yeah Selden was the answer for losing Troy Williams. Both Wayne and Troy put up good numbers in the D-League together in Iowa but Selden was always the more consistent player between the two. I was mad about the Troy thing but I believe we picked the right player with Selden.

    Jaren Jackson Jr's Floor/Ceiling

    Exactly! He has a frame that can add some serious weight/muscle. Someone earlier brought up Hakim Warrick but that guy had a super skinny frame. It was also reported that JJJ's doctors said he is still growing and there is a good chance he will hit 7'1. He can have a build similar to Anthony Davis.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    I'd look at Wayne Ellington or Joe Harris for shooting, especially if we can't sign a more prominent wing like Barton, Evans, or KCP. It would probably take a trade of JaM+picks to get a starting level SF like Jae Crowder or Demarre Carrol.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    I don't think PHX would trade TJ Warren for anything we have but I think Crowder/JaM swap might be possible.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    Now that the draft is over and we have our two guys, the final piece will be free agency. Grizzlies will have the full MLE to work with. Tyreke will probably be a target but I hope Will Barton is too. Would not be surprised to see Jam traded for some help on the wing as well.

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Now that it looks like ATL will be the landing spot for Doncic... Wonder if ATL would take 4+Jam+McLemore+32+future 2nd for 3+Bazemore. I remember reading that ATL wants off of Bazemore contract.

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    If the order goes Ayton, Doncic, Bagley, then I would be open to the 7 & 22 from Chicago for the 4+32. I would then take Knox at 7 and Divincenzo at 22 then try to buy way back in to 2nd round for Jevon Carter. Not an ideal situation but it is what it is. That is what happens when you get the 4th pick out of a draft with 3 big pieces.

    Trade Likely Coming for Draft

    Chandler looked good in spots this season too. His stock can't get any lower so I would rather see what he has to offer first. We saw that it took Carter 3 seasons to really get back on track from inury and should at least see what Chandler can do. Parsons right now is a bench player and if he is even 50% serviceable of his former self then that PLUS the 4 will outweigh trading him and the pick.

    Greg Buckner Hired

    Um Bickerstaff has signed some big names and well respected guys to his coaching staff.

    Unless you actually want Doncic or Bagley and this is your way trying to get Sac to take Porter so your guy falls. If they can build up the demand of making them seem desperate that Porter will be there and they feel very confident in him, that might make ATL or SAC think about taking a second look at who they have. Getting closer to the draft, thinks are going to get nutty with this amount of talent at the top spots.

    I hope Porter shows out on Friday and totally messes with the top draft order.

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    I get Trae not wanting part of the Grizzlies. They already have a set starting PG in Conley and you are delusional if you think they will trade him...or Marc. All those places he listed he would obviously be the starting PG from the get go and be the face of the franchise. I don't blame him.

    Why Memphis Must Take Wendell Carter @ # 4

    I was thinking about this last night. He is really one of those shoe deal/commercial faces which Memphis has never had.
  16. I feel like CW is quick to trade 1st rounders for existing players because he is a poor judge of talent when the pressure is on. He is pretty good at the low risk lightning in the bottle late round guys because it isn't a big deal if they don't work out and makes him look smart for the attempt. I feel like CW would rather trade a pick for a known NBA entity instead of taking someone and him being responsible for the aftermath. That is what scares me about this draft pick. Yes I understand going for someone who will help right now but this team really needs to start planning for the future. Maybe CW doesn't care about the future. He has said he plans on retiring in a few years anyways so he might end up trading the pick for someone like McCollum to help the "now" since the major repercussions won't show until he has retired and it is no longer his responsibility.
  17. Especially a trade where you hang a first round pick so far out there. Now, if the Grizzlies are able to jump back into the playoffs for a few more seasons and Boston gets the pick and it becomes nothing more than a mid 20s pick, then I think you can say it is a wash. If Grizzlies completely implode then it is a disaster.

    If we end up with Bagley, I would look to move JaM and try to get another pick. Something like Jam+DD for 22(Chandler Hutchinson)+Robin Lopez.

    This is why I'd swing for the fences with #4 for Tatum. You basically tell the league the value of the number 4 in your eyes if you really want to trade it. Plan to stand pat and draft your guy at 4 but might up the value other teams bring to you.

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    A successful draft will have us walking away with either Doncic or Bagley.
  21. New_Sacred_Cow

    I was thinking the same thing.
  22. New_Sacred_Cow

    With The 4th Pick In The 2018 NBA Draft

    Yeah at a glance that seems pretty good but looks bad the longer you stare at it. If they really want Doncic, I wonder if Tatum is available? With Hayward coming back to defacto starting SF, what will they do with Tatum? Or the opposite direction, if they find more value in Tatum, is Hayward available?
