    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    So is this going to be confirmed soon? Given that several of these deals have changed since the report, I'd like to get this done, if true. I'm wondering if they are deciding on who to stretch or if another deal is in works.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    With so much cap space, i wonder if they will make a run at Rodney Hood or Clint Cappela?

    This is like the team that says they have 3 QBs battling for the starting spot. When that happens, it really means you have nobody who's good enough for the position. Given Conley's injury history, you need a pretty deep supply of backups. It also means Kobi ain't making the big boy roster this year.

    The 2018 Free Agents

    DD won't need minutes, and definitely be waived. The Kings are starting the season trying to win games. If they are out of it, I could see ZBo being part of a trade where his expiring contract is sent to a team trying to clear cap space for next year. If that team is out of the playoffs, he could probably be waived and brought back to Memphis, but I'm not sure that's happening either barring injuries. The Kings have the freedom to go after any free agent right now. There aren't a whole lot of buyers that can offer more than the minimum. Although the FA available right now are like looking at the Toys R Us rack on the last day of the store closing sale.

    DA stocking up on his frequent miles and will be a free agent to possibly be signed by some team looking for guys who are frequently injured.

    Isn't the oft-injured Selden also still on a non-guaranteed deal or has that deadline passed? I don't understand the thinking some have that because we acquired another guard, it means we are trading JaM? JaM, JJJ, and Gasol are all going to be needed, and the trade of DD and acquisition of Mack puts greater value on JaM, not less. I'm not opposed to trading him, but it needs to be for another big.
  7. I don't think it will be 40....and I'd wager (not really) that the O/U win total will be lower than last years which was around 38. Given people remember the most recent season, and given how pessimistic Vegas has the team for the WCF, 35.5 is my guess for what I think Vegas will offer.

    What are we gonna do about a backup center?

    Correct, unless the Kings deal him to Houston or somewhere else, and that teams waives him. To be clear...I'm very much OK with not seeing DD in a Grizzlies uniform again.

    Sign a center on the 2-way contract. Only bring him up if needed. The Grizzlies are so close to lux tax that it either trade or undrafted minimum player type of guy. I suppose DD might get waived. They could pick him up on a minimum deal again.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Kings wanted this deal done I think to absorb the Ryan Anderson contract in a trade (maybe for DD). I would expect the Kings to also receive a first rounder if they are helping out the Rockets that much. It'd be interesting if the rockets kept DD on the roster.

    Last year 47 was in but 46 was out. And some years that is comfortable in, but not in some other years. That roster is not good, especially if LBJ gets injured for a stretch of time. Barring adding Kawhi or someone like Gasol, that team is not in 2nd round of playoffs. Of course it doesn't mean the grizzlies are at all better either.

    I'm not convinced of this anymore. LeBron went 15-15 against the West last year on a 50 win Cavs team. The year before, 16-14. That is a hodgepodge collection of characters and rookies. I'm not saying the Lakers are missing the playoffs, but I think they could finish between 3rd or 11th. I don't think any other team has that range of outcomes (barring injury).

    There's also the chance that the LA team that Kawhi ends up is the Clippers, not the Lakers. Apparently he (or his camp) have repeated that he doesn't care which LA team he plays for. The Clippers need him to stay relevant, and I think if they get him, they can still do the 5 year max extension that the Lakers couldn't do.
