    Rather have Laravia locked up for 4 years + a possible extension than Brogdon on that contract

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    Just gave me so much ammo. We have an All NBA player in Ja, an All Defensive Team player in Jaren, Bane is a Budding Star and Dillon even with his flaws is probably the best 4th option in the league. Not to mention we have one of the top 2 Backup PGs in the league and Adams, BC & ZW whose shooting numbers the second half of last season were good. This team goes 9 deep with high level contributors who all (except Adams) are ascending. This team has the building blocks to strike and be the super team you speak of, you don’t throw that depth of talent and flexibility away for middling Free Agents. The best Front Offices make smart moves. This statement is complete 🧢. They trade away 2nd round picks like spicy McChickens but they don’t trade away 1st round picks routinely. They do trade them when a guy they really want comes available which has happened a few times and when they have traded 1sts to move up they haven’t missed yet (If I’m not mistaken they have only done it for Ziaire and Jake). You say trade them for proven guys, cool. But those proven guys make way more money than they contributors you get in the draft which hinders your ability to keep your Star players. You want to add a great role player and lose Bane? No, none of us do. It looks like just money to you but the salary cap is a real thing and the FO has done a great job of keeping the books clean while surrounding their Star players with talent. Explain to me how the Warriors are worse? Because they lost Garry Payton ll???? Come on, you’re smarter than that. I’d much rather have Divencinzo than Payton. How are the Grizzlies worse?? Is Ja not going to improve? Is Bane not going to improve? Is Ziaire not going to improve? Folks out here acting like we lost Scottie Pippen and Vinny Johnson. We lost a dude who averaged 6ppg on 25% shooting from 3 in the playoffs and a dude who averages 6 points on 33% from the field and 26% from 3 in the playoffs. Kyle’s defensive versatility will be missed and Melton’s energy will be missed in the regular season, but let’s stop acting like we’re about to fall off a cliff. Y’all were saying this same nonsense last off-season because trading JV was the sign of the end times. How did the T-Wolves get better? Because they went and added a center when their second best player was already a center? Because they added a guy to stand under the rim to make it harder for Ant and KAT to drive in the paint? Because they added a guy who literally gets played off the court in the playoffs every year?? Come on. You’re better than that. That was the dumbest trade of the off-season. The west will be a war between GS, Memphis, Dallas, LAC and the Pelicans of Zion can stay healthy. I for 1 will be happy to watch it play out.

    Wasn’t that always the plan until free agency started and the entirety of these boards lost their minds??

    It ain’t moneyball when you’re paying a dude 240 million. It’s smart team building. The A’s paid no one, we are paying our stars.

    Or is it genius? Because Rookie contracts are cheap and the life blood of a small market franchise??

    One of these days people are going to learn we will never be able to build a team in Memphis through flashy free agent signings. It’s a long grind in a small market. I’m down for the ride.

    So what you’re saying is the dudes we lost weren’t playing quality minutes. Because that’s exactly what they were doin 🤔

    Ima be so amped to talk trash when the Rookies we drafted are playing big roles to replace them. Archiving this in my I told you so Rolodex.

    Bingo. He is a mismatch at the 5, just another good player at the 4 with Gobert sitting in the paint all game.

    Feel like they got worse tbh.

    And that’s what’s wrong with the league right now. Who gives a crap if a guy with 4 years left on his deal wants to go to a place. Trade that man where you want to trade him. Not even a Grizz related thing, just for the league in general.

    When will JJJ return to the court?

    They say 4-6 months so I say 5ish, mid December.
