  1. You say that but he's never even played in an actual NBA game.

    Vegas Summer League roster

    He gets off the ground pretty well, and he is extremely fast end-to-end, but I DO think he isn't esp. quick off the dribble. Overall I think his athleticism is pretty good for a starting 2G.

    Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

    Can't we trade him for the Harrison Barnes Trade Exception? That seems a likely and mutually beneficial deal to me.

    Grizzlies FO learning from Kawhi and new NBA realities

    The NBA gets stupider every year it seems. Championships are all based on which diva wants to be BFFs with which premadona in a given year. I just feel soooo attached to these guys; they're really just like us.
  5. My impression of Jones is that he's at his best when playing with high-level starters. He's a classic set up pass-first PG. Doesn't really offer much else. I don't expect he'll be as good playing with a rebuilding team as opposed to guys like Wiggins, Towns, Butler et al. 9mil seems like a lot to me, but we've gotta have a backup PG and there aren't really any left so... i'm okay with this, I guess. Interesting to see if the Wolves match. I like Wright much better, but getting some picks out of one while signing the other is a great deal all in all.

    Welcom De'Anthony Melton

    He is a young unskilled Avery Bradley.

    Grizzlies get Josh Jackson from Suns

    If you think that a father smoking weed around his baby so heavily that the baby gets a contact buzz isn't "dark", then you have very low standards and I pity you.

    Grizzlies get Josh Jackson from Suns

    Hopefully we will cut Jackson. He is a sicko. Don't want him in my city, we already have enough degeneracy. Getting Melton and 2nds is great, though.

    The Brandon Clarke thread

    I don't hate the pick, but i don't really like it either. Length seems more and more important trait to me as I've paid attention to the draft over the years. Usually short arms equal failure. He's got a great bounce, but most often one plays defense with their feet on the ground. He does have some other positive traits, and at this point in the draft there weren't a lot of better players imo. Someone mentioned Montrez Harrell, but the difference there is Harrell's length. I expect he could stick to a roster but don't expect much more out of him. I think Rabb is better. We shall see... I would've loved to get Samanic or Bitadze who went a few picks earlier. Maybe we traded up for that very reason. I would've parted with Brooks or Rabb (and the future 2nd) if it meant moving up to 18 or 19 to get one of those guys. I think I would've taken Nick Claxton instead at #21 if we really wanted a big, or taken a flier on Little or Porter and hope they clear the perceived cobwebs out of their respective heads. Overall I give the pick a B- or maybe a C+ .

    Conley to Nuggets

    Memphis trades: Mike Conley, Dillon Brooks, Ivan Rabb Denver trades: Mason Plumlee, Will Barton, Michael Porter Jr., 2020 2nd - The Grizzlies get two very solid role players (on reasonable contracts), a potential star in Porter, a pick. Plumlee and Barton will keep us out of the low lottery while we wait on the new core of Morant-Porter-Jackson. Brooks and Rabb are both expiring on their rookie contracts so they wouldn't probably be around after this year anyway. Admittedly, I don't really know what to make of Porter Jr., but people around the league probably know more than fans do. If he can pass a physical, then I think he's a good gamble. Memphis Grizzlies: Wright, Morant, Carter Barton, Bradley Anderson, Porter Jr., Parsons Jackson Jr., Valanciunus, Plumlee - The Nuggets get an all-star level player at the apex of his career to mix with their core of Murray-Millsap-Jokic. Conley would blend well with them and provide some leadership. Could he lift them over the hump and into the finals? Very possible. Brooks & Rabb round out their roster depth at a cheap price. Admittedly, I don't really know what they think of Porter Jr., but they may be willing to part with a possible future star to get a player of Conley's worth. Denver Nuggets: Conley, Morris Murray, Harris, Beasley Craig, Brooks Millsap, Hernangomez, Lydon Jokic, Rabb

    Blockbuster Trade Idea

    You're overestimating our guy's value. A simple Conley for Hayward swap would be more likely and really probably about the best we could hope for. There is also the issue of the Celts not wanting to make us good next year. Hayward wouldn't exactly help us suck. He started playing better towards the end of the season.

    Wizards For Conley?

    Beal for Conley is a lateral move in current-day talent that only makes them older with two PGs. Why would they do that? They would never do that.

    Grizz Trade Conley, Will Retire His Jersey

    Porter Jr., Plumlee, Barton, 2020 1st for: Conley, Dillon Brooks, Rabb - Memphis gets two good players on reasonable contracts, a 1st in a year where we wouldn't otherwise have one, and a potential-laden prospect in Porter Jr. - Denver gets a 4th all-star level player with Millsap, Jokic, and Murray, Brooks and Rabb provide cheap depth, they keep they're 2019 1st to further help round out the roster as they make a run for a championship. Grizzlies: Wright, Carter Barton, Bradley Anderson, Porter Jr., Parsons, Watanabe Jackson Jr., Porter Jr. Valunciunas, Plumlee Nuggets: Conley, Morris Murray, Harris, Beasley Craig, Brooks Millsap, Hernangomez, Lydon Jokic, Rabb
