    Grizzlies sign Yuta Watanabe

    They’re saving themselves for when we pick our first 10-day contract.

    Vegas Summer League

    Yes, of course, and I said as much in my post. The comparison was international because those are examples of players that get fouled a lot in everyone’s mind, and the fact that Harrison gets fouled at even a comparable rate should say something. But even ignoring the stats I wonder if people have actually been watching the same games as I. Almost from day one, at the same time we were all complaining about Harrison’s awful shooting and ball pounding, the consensus among those watching the games was that drawing fouls was his one undeniable NBA skill.

    How is the number of received fouls per possession an “advanced” stat? It’s as straightforward as it gets.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    Remember stretching Martin is also an option, and I’m not sure why nobody thinks Selden might be a trade chip instead of Harrison.

    What are we gonna do about a backup center?

    Not enough Anas action has been a common complaint all Summer League long.

    Not until a year has passed.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Yeah, but what I'm pointing out is you can't assume a 2nd round draft pick is going to necessarily be a Jevon Carter (who looks like a rotation player out of the gates) because the overwhelming chances are he's going to be a straight to the G-league and out of the NBA in two seasons player. Even if he's a high 2nd round pick (which is hardly a given 3 years in the future.) 2nd round picks are essentially trade chips in today's NBA. Once we shed some salary we can get one or two back just by using our cap to facilitate other teams' trades.

    If the trade had included Rabb (drafted #35) instead of a second rounder I suppose someone would be bitching about lost potential but I doubt many would be killing the trade. And it's also the same trade, essentially.

    We also get Temple's Bird rights, which would make it easier to re-sign him if we're so inclined.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    They dump Schroeder's contract (and personality) in order to open massive cap space in 2019, and get a pick that most likely will be used in future trades (they're already owed two protected first rounders in 2019.) It kind of make sense for them if they want to be big FA players in 2019. I'm more confused about OKC, since absorbing Schroeder and Luwavu-Cabarrot (Muscala goes to the 76ers in order to make salaries work) means they get much less tax relief than they would have just stretching Melo, only to receive a player that plays the same position as Westbrook. By the way, every time we feel bad for having $83M locked into Marc, Mike and Parsons until 2020, just remember OKC will have $120M locked into WB, PG, Schroeder and Adams until 2021. I'm sure OKC's TV contract will compensate having to pay repeater tax all those years.

    True, but in the end we have more salary than before. This is not a salary cutting move, it's a fat cutting move.

    Yes, Spotrac is not correct here. I get the same numbers as you, give or take a few thousand dollars.

    Vegas Summer League

    The stat you need to look at is personal fouls drawn per 100 possessions. He got 6.3 last season. Better than James Harden in his second year. Better in fact than Chris Paul in the last 7 seasons. I'm obviously not saying Harrison is comparable to either Harden or Paul as a player, just that he can get fouls at a very high rate (and last season he played 46 games against starting PGs). The reason he doesn't get many FTs is he doesn't get so many shooting fouls. Maybe he needs to learn to flail and throw the ball in the general direction of the basket.

    The tax line is at $123.7M and we're at $123.0M after the trade and signing Carter. We can't sign anyone without going into the tax.
