    Thoughts about the off season "rebuild"

    And I believe the Grizzlies having cap space is useless because all they’ll get is a washed Chandler Parsons or a mediocre Kyle Anderson because this is not a destination franchise, so the summer of 2019 and the 2019-2020 season are the time to use all of the players on the last year of their deals as trade chips. Which makes it a timely topic. But I to give up

    I’m talking about us sending expiring contracts to teams that send us back picks to get rid of their own bad contracts. Us being the Boston not the Grizzlies of the past. Why would we not want to be in that situation?

    The grizzlies would send out expiring and take back bad contracts along with assets, ie. what Brooklyn did to get Deangelo Russell. But if you disagree just say you disagree. But you can’t debate that teams send future picks and young talent to get off of bad contracts

    Right now teams like Boston, Toronto , Portland and Dallas don’t have the cap space to go after him currently. And unless I’ve been blinded by the past, the nba as a whole isn’t going to just allow him to walk to the Lakers. There will be other teams looking to clear cap space and we’ll have the contracts to make that type of deal happen. Or what if Washington wants to blow it up and get rid of horrible contracts like Ian Mahinmi and they’re willing to attach Bradley Beal to make it happen, we have the contracts to make it happen. Expiring contracts are a commodity in the NBA and the grizzlies have, probably by accident, stockpiled them for next season.

    Even if all of those things are true, they would still have over 40 million in expiring contracts (Chandler Parsons 24 million, Avery Bradley 12M, CJ Miles 8M) to move for young players and crap contracts in return. There will be teams willing to attempt to get cap space for next summer when Anthony Davis is available among others. And the Grizzlies would be uniquely positioned to capitalize on it.

    Why is no one talking about the 63 million in expiring contracts this team will have if JV opts in as a major trade capital? And we have Conley to trade on top of that. None of those expiring players are part of this teams future with the exception of maybe JV. That puts the Grizzlies in a great spot going into a rebuild. Either trade for young players or sign 2nd tier guys to reasonable contracts to build around JJJ and any young talented guys we can get through trades.

    Future of the Grizzlies

    We should have embraced the tank, SMH 3 dudes at the top of this draft are almost a lock to be stars in the league. Zion will be the next Barkley, Ja Morant looks like Westbrook with a jumper and R.J. Barrett will be a 20 ppg scorer at minimum. Would love to see Morant with JJJ. Now I can only hope in the lottery.

    The positives

    I think they are still in win now mode due to other teams flipping the switch to tank mode. NO, Dallas, LAC, and Washington all traded away good players in an effort to loose games. If we couldn’t get good future value, might as well go all in on conveying that pick.

    Grizzlies acquire Avery Bradley

    The positives

    Avery Bradley is a SG not a PG.

    Grizzlies trading Gasol to Raptors

    The more I think about it the more I feel like they just wanted to send Marc to a place he’d have a chance to win big. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself to try and feel warm and fuzzy about this bs

    Grizzlies acquire Avery Bradley

    Soooo, we could’ve had Houston’s 1st round pick for those dudes and took Avery Bradley instead? 🤦🏾‍♂️
