  1. Draft best available. Do not draft a player that fits nest to your rotational backup C who is only the backup because they traded Wright. Right now I'd go with Ayton as number 1 because of size and talent. Imagine him in a couple of seasons of strength building. He will be right up there with Anthony Davis, Embiid, and KAT. With that said, I wouldn't be sad if we came away with Doncic or Bagley. I think those two are your safe bets that fit both best available after Ayton and a need for this team.

    I view him as being more valuable as a spot minute veteran presence teaching the young guys than him being a minutes heavy lock down defender.

    He can want whatever player he wants for the team. Your opinion doesn't hold more weight than his.

    Hope to see the tournament start to put some space between some of these guys and answer some questions. I'll be watching Porter Jr. the closest. Right now in order 1-4 I'd take Ayton, Doncic, Porter Jr, Bagley

    I'm all about the tank but I would like to see these guys win one. It has to be soul crushing being in that locker room.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    I agree on Tony. I would be blunt in the meeting and say it will be a limited minutes bench role. After the year removed playing for the Pelicans, I think he would accept. Also it would be a great PR move for the team bringing him back. After the cluster that is this season, this would be a good step when selling to the season ticket holders and getting butts in seats.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    Just hear me out. One free agent I wouldn't mind them signing this offseason is Tony Allen. With his desire to return to Memphis, they could get him on a vet minimum 2 year deal. Probably 1+1 with team option. Reasoning: Young teams need vets around them to teach them how to win. This is why teams like Phoenix and Sixers that sit in lottery every year lose with tons of talent. It is the same thing last time Tony joined the team. Even if he doesn't play major minutes, his presence and focused mindset should be a major help to the team both on court and in the locker room. PLUS, the Grizzlies are strapped financially. They will probably have to offer the full MLE to nab Reke or someone like Will Barton. Which leaves little room filling out the roster after signing a top draft player too. Marc also mentioned how difficult it was not having Tony out there with him. The team is dead set keeping Marc so this would be a very small move to appease him as well. Tony can't play at the same speed anymore but his defensive mentality and focus hasn't changed. That alone for young players like Brooks, Selden, Simmons, and the draft pick is worth it.

    The tournament and workouts should really separate people further. Right now there are too many what ifs.

    My biggest fear is Wallace taking Doncic with the number 1 pick. It just screams something he would do because we already have Marc as the main big. He short sights everything.

    I think at a minimum the Grizzlies would come away with Bagley, which is fantastic. Right now Ayton is my number 1, followed by Doncic, Porter, then Bagley/Young.

    The broadcast quoted Porter as saying he is at 60% right now. Bagley is a 4.

    I think it depends if they get some vet help on that team.

    Not expecting that obviously. He is moving well but has zero lift which would be my biggest concern.
  22. New_Sacred_Cow

    After the 1st half of the Mizzou game, Michael Porter Jr. is not challenging Doncic or Ayton for the number 1 pick.

    Memphis @ Chicago 03/07/18

    Adding back in a healthy Mike Conley would be a big step. Don't forget the team started off the season as one of the best in the league. That window is very small but having a healthy Mike Conley, a healthy and rested Marc, adding a wing with the MLE (Barton, Reke, Ariza) , and a top player could get you back to a 5 seed. Having anything from Parsons would help as well.

    I'd be all in on a LaMarcus Aldridge for Gasol trade straight up.

    Deyonta or Ivan?

    Deyonta has been given a lot of opportunity lately and hasn't done much. I don't see the Grizzlies moving on from him yet but I think next year will be do or die.
