    Grizzlies trading Gasol to Raptors

    I like the Gasol deal. Much better return than I anticipated. Valunciunus is a good player. Check his stats; he puts up good production in 20-25 mpg. He and Jackson will be a good tandem. Wright is a decent young player. Also Vally expires along with Miles & Bradley in 2 years just like Parsons (that's about 55mil all total). This is evidence of long-term planning. It looks like we will keep Conley for next year. We will tank the rest of this year and keep our pick, then try to be good next year ( w/ Conley, Vally, Bradley, lotto pick) when our pick is unprotected. Then we can rebuild with two high lotto picks, all that salary off the books (FAs acquisitions?) and maybe keep Conley or Vally at reduced salary.

    4 Team Deal

    Here's an updated version of the above trade, not b/c I expect anyone will care, but b/c I think it's fun to do: Memphis Trades: Garrett Temple, JaMychal Green, Andrew Harrison, Dillon Brooks Memphis Receives: Brandon Knight, Josh Jackson, Richaun Holmes Phoenix Trades: Brandon Knight, T.J. Warren, Josh Jackson, Marquese Chriss, Richaun Holmes Phoenix Receives: Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Garrett Temple, JaMychal Green Charlotte Trades: Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Receives: T.J. Warren, Marquese Chriss, Andrew Harrison, Dillon Brooks - MEM takes on Knights contract for 2yrs, gives up good expirings in Green, Temple, Harrison, and lets Dillon Brooks go in exchange for Josh Jackson's potential. Jackson averaged 13ppg as a rookie, and has a lot more defensive potential than Brooks. I actually think Knight could be a good backup PG for us, and could also play some SG alongside Conley at times also. His contract expires alongside Parsons and we won't be doing much of anything until Parsons expires anyway. Holmes is a lesser version of Green, but he can hold down that spot for the time being. - PHX gets the best player in the trade in all-star Kemba Walker (22.1ppg, 5.6apg 17-18). They badly need help at PG. If they think they can resign him to grow with their young core, then this makes sense for them. Swapping Gilchrist and Temple for Warren and Jackson won't affect them much; they still have Booker, Bridges, and Ariza. Gilchrist has a bad contract, but only for 2yrs. They won't hate having him as a defensive specialist who can also play some small-ball 4. Green is a good expiring and is an improvement over Chriss or Holmes. Basically though, this is all about acquiring Kemba. - CHA probably won't be able to keep Walker past this year. This way they get off of Kidd-Gilchrist's contract which is good b/c they are sooo tied up with salary with Batum, Biyombo, Zeller, and Williams. They also get Warren on a good contract, and 3 players on rookie contracts; Brooks, Chriss, Harrison. Better to get something as opposed to nothing out of Kemba before he walks away. Memphis Grizzlies: Conley, Knight, Carter Seldon, Jo. Jacksons, M. Brooks, Simmons Anderson, Jo. Jackson, Parsons, Watanabe Ja. Jackson, Holmes, Casspi Gasol, Rabb, Johnson

    Grizzlies sign Yuta Watanabe

    You almost got it until the final syllable.

    What are we gonna do about a backup center?

    It has been stated by our coach and our GM that we are going to try to play different than other teams. We are going to try to play inside-out. So yes, we could use a backup true C or another post-scorer at PF. I expect we'll see Rabb at 5 as much as we'd have seen Davis; maybe like 10mpg. I doubt we'll see Parsons and Anderson at 4 as much as others on the boards do, assuming we don't trade Green.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    Lots of Garret Temple love on here! I doubt he is of much consequence this year or that he'll be here next year. I'd rather just keep the pick. I don't see him as being a better option than D. Brooks, Selden, Anderson, or even Parsons or M. Brooks. I'd actually rather get Simmons some extra spot mpg than win an extra game or two with Temple. On the bright side he is a more attractive expiring than McLemore so there could be a subsequent trade in the works or something else at the deadline... If there really isn't anything else going on, i'd just call this a minimal loss for an incremental gain. This is literally; no big deal.
  6. I assume he'll be paying their tax burden for everyone and letting them stay at his place.

    THANK YOU!!!! Introverts get treated worse than dirt in society. It's just dumb. Chest thumping accomplishes nothing. If you can't see past a lack of histrionic demonstrations and evaluate how a person is actually doing their job, then you are an idiot who probably thinks you're way smarter than you actually are.

    Grizzlies 1 of 2 Teams Pursuing RFA Smart via S&T

    Sorry, thought he was RFA. Apparently the 6xers declined his option before trading him.

    Grizzlies 1 of 2 Teams Pursuing RFA Smart via S&T

    How bout doing a S&T with the Nets for Jahlil Okafor. He'd give us some serious low-post offense off the bench. If we want to be that iconoclast kind of team that plays D and plays offense inside out, Okafor can make that work - at least the latter part. The guy can really score even if he's been devalued and passed over somewhat. I'd bet he like to sign with a team like ours that would appreciate him. He could keep a lot of tread off Marc's tires, also. I bet we could get him on a 1 or 2 year for around 6mil. McLemore, Davis for: Okafor

    Grizzlies 1 of 2 Teams Pursuing RFA Smart via S&T

    I like Smart as a player and i'd support bringing him into the fold but the fit is a little iffy to me. If we did get him i'd just play him as a backup PG, but give him heavy mpg like 22mpg or something like that and just rest Conley for playoffs. I don't like him in a starting lineup and esp. with Anderson. Playing backup PG with shooters like Parsons and D. Brooks would blend well, or playing him with a point5 like Gasol would work okay too. Maybe some situational minutes at SG with Conley at PG would be good if we really wanna lock a certain somebody up. I guess Green would be the main player of interest, but I think they might like Harrison also who would be redundant for us with the Smart import. I actually think the Celts would go for that if Smart agrees to it. I'd be fine with a 4 year 9mil contract like what the similarly limited Anderson got. That's a good raise from the 6mil/year that it is rumored BOS is offering. At this late date in the game that may be about what he could really expect. Conley, Smart, Carter Seldon, Brooks, Brooks Anderson, Parsons Jackson, Martin, Rabb, Casspi Gasol, Davis, Rabb
  11. No, it has everything to do with disagreeing. You didn't like something I said, you got triggered, and you started name calling like a child. Now we see you are either too cowardly to own up to it or too stupid to recognize it. What is it like to go through life with the emotional intelligence of a 9 year old? What exactly do you think this message board is about? People come here, they converse about the team - that's the whole point! Do you expect to live in a dream world where everyone loves everything the FO does all of the time, or do you expect to live in a dream world where everyone agrees with you about the team all of the time? Neither will ever happen. If you can't deal with complaints about what's going on with the team, then you should leave.
  12. Wah Wah Wah! i'm sooo tired of people who disagree with me... why does this even keep happening? Why can't they see it my way and say what I want them to say? You are such a baby. I can't believe it took you this long to just say plainly what your issue is. Maybe it was b/c your issue was weak and you knew it from the start. Also, I don't always complain. Sometimes the Grizz make moves I like, sometimes they don't. Eat it!
  13. No, not happy at all. B/c you aren't able to offer any reasoning. All you have been able to do is just spew borderline retarded nonsensical insults. Are you usually hyper-emotional when confronted with different opinions in other realms of life? Are you PMSing? Really, honestly, i'm trying to figure you out? Help me help you!
  14. b/c why? b/c I'm not an Anderson fan? I mean honestly what the hell are you even talking about? Do you even know?
  15. Be brave, be explicit. I don't know you or what you're about, so I'd really love it you'd spell it out for me... I know you will b/c you spoke soo boldly before, so you're obviously not a coward, right?
