    Sounds like a robbery gone bad. He was sitting in his car outside his house in Dallas and some people ran up on him and he fought back and got shot.

    Probably the same as a couple of weeks ago. Advertising different international universities. Have no clue why. You can translate it.

    2020 Free Agency

    As things stand right now, the Grizz have a boatload of cap space for the 2020 offseason. If we take a wild guess and estimate the 2020 cap to be around $110-$115 million. From what i can see (and it will be updated in a few days), the Grizz guaranteed salaries for next year are in the $40-$50 million range. the question is...what do we do with all of that cap space? Should we try to spend it on a FA? Here's a list of 2020 FA. I think some of them like Ben SImmons have already gotten extensions. Is there anyone on that list that we could realistically get that we should offer a max contract to? Is there really any reason to spend money on FA next offseason? How much better will it make this team? Would it be better to make a trade for some longer term contracts of player who could help us get better and just deal with it over the next couple of years? Should we swing for the fence and absorb a bad contract of a player ith potential? i'm just wondering where people think we are going. I would assume no one thinks we will do much this year and this year is more to develop Ja and JJJ but what about the following year? What should we do?

    2016 Draft Diamonds&Busts

    What determines if a player should get a max deal or not? Guys like Chandler Parsons, Wesley Matthews, Otto Porter, Hassan Whiteside, and Enes Kanter have all gotten the max of what they could get. None of them are superstars, heck, not even stars really. And then you have stars like Conley and Hayward getting max deals but did they "deserve it" based on whatever your criteria is? Who should get a max contract varies on a year to year and team to team basis. A player could get a max one off-season but not the next depending on the market and who is available. A small market land-locked team like Memphis is at a severe disadvantage and will have to overpay and/or take on risks to lure good players away. As far as I remember before Parsons signed, our biggest FA acquisition that exceeded the MLE was Brian friggen Cardinal. TA was the most impactful (and Mighty Mouse to a certain degree but he didn't play many games) but neither exceeded the MLE. Heck, I live in Dallas and they have trouble signing FAs. Dallas is the 4th largest metro area in the U.S. and still growing, the Mavs have won an NBA Championship, there's tons of money here and they can't sign big name FAs to save Cuban's life. A lot of these players want to run to the coastal cities (N.Y., L.A., S.F., MIA, BOS, maybe D.C. if they get their stuff together, not so much Portland and Philly is close enough) and date Kardashians and party with strippers on their yachts. As far as cities in the middle, it's Chicago and everybody else. After that, it's a battle for scaps for small and mid sized cities like Memphis, OKC, Utah, Indy, Milwaukee, etc. That's why it's so crucial for us to draft well and hold on to our FA or make savvy trades. Most FAs stay with their teams or head to major markets.If we trade for talent, it will be for someone troubled like Z-Bo. With all of that being said, I'm not sure what BOS would offer Brown but he may be one of the best options Memphis could get. Would he stay in BOS for less, maybe, who knows. There's not many options next summer.

    So we used two picks and traded for a third and none of them are even in teh nBA after 3 years. That's why we are where we are. You have to build a talent base not exchange guys in and out every offseason.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    Yeah, what they said. I don't see it really making any impact to our roster as I would assume he would be waived before the season starts.

    Lorenzen Wright's Murder Solved?

    With her antics since being arrested, I doubt if they'll let her out on parole. It's a long time between now and the parole hearing but she's had what 2 or 3 incidents since being arrested. Not to mention her inconsistent stories. It's hard to say and Memphis has a history of being lenient on women who kill their husbands (I remember watching some documentary on the History channel awhile back specifically on that topic) but I think she will sevre at least 15 years. She should serve the entire sentence being that she set him up to die not once but at least twice. Also, I assume she would have to pay the insurance company back. Sure she doesn't have any money but I would assume they would want the money back being that she orchestrated the hitm

    To convey or not to convey

    I don't see us being in a position to convey. As it stands now, I would say we will have one of the 3 worst records in the League if we start the season tomorrow. We might as well take our licks this season, get a top 3-5 pick and then convey in 2021

    Official: Russ to Rockets for CP3

    i'm wondering if they would stretch him and waive him but that would be one heck of stretch. I don't see him being traded. HOU got beyond lucky because they wanted to get rid of him and I'm sure there were no suitors for his age and salary. This was about the only trade and they lucked up.

    Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

    Sounds like Mavs fans wanting to dump CLee The Grizzlies' so-far response, DBcom has been told, is that they are unwilling to take on the ballast of Lee's $12.759 million salary in such a deal. The Mavs would love to employ Iguodala in the starting lineup or off the bench, where he was so helpful to Golden State during their title run before the Warriors recently salary-dumped him to Memphis.

    Tyus Jones, Grizzlies agree to $28 million offer sheet

    I don't disagree with any of that. My issue is simple. We don't have any proven scoring on this roster right now. I really don't care about analytics and not playing defense in this scenario. You wanna know why?.....because we're going to suck next year regardless of what we do and will more than likely suck the year after that as well. There's a good chance that we will have one of the worst 3 records in the league next year. it's a difference between being horrible and being bad yet competitive. With as much cap space as we have next year, there's a good chance, we need to have a bad contract. We can still sign a big contract next year even with WIggins contract on the books because we will have that much space. Me suggesting Wiggins is not to have him as our core. it's to bring him on strictly as a scoring role player for a couple of years, that's it. Similarly to how i suggested we go after Hayward in a Conley trade. i'm just looking for a proven NBA scorer for a year or two, nothing more, nothing less. This team has virtually no proven scorer next year. JV had a nice run of 19 games with us, JJJ and Ja have played a total of 58 NBA games. This team will be really bad next year. All I was saying is add a scorer. It's not going to stop us from signing any big name player next year. Fact is, FA will be bad next year and we have no shot at the best players. I'm just looking for a scorer and from what I saw, there were really only 3 available-Hayward, Wiggins and Warren. i don't think we can get the other two. We can develop people and do all of the stuff you said, with one bad contract on our books. He's not taking shots from Ja and JJJ. It's well known it's their team. He just needs to score for a year or 2 and then trade him, unless ha makes a dramatic turnaround and helps us win, then keep him. First, I'm not lobbying anyone in particular. I'm looking at different people to add as a scorer. i have mentioned others but people always want to go back and forth on Wiggins. I don't care about Wiggins. I'm trying to get us a scorer. our 2 best returning scorers are JJJ who barely played more than half a season and JV who only played 19 games for us. Ja hasn't even played in summer league. Ja will make players around him better which is why I think getting someone who has a scoring mentality would help the young guys out because Ja will also make tons of mistakes. JJJ was constantly in foul trouble last year, Brooks is really not that good, Josh Jackson is a stone cold weedhead who doesn't care about basketball and makes bonehead out of control plays and there will be many nights when Clarke is overmatached. People can talk about all of this run and gun but if we don't have the right players and we're relying on a rookie, it could be a disaster. Jae Crowder, Kyle Anderson and JV really don't fit a pace and space, run and gun style and those are guys we are relying on as of right now. I don't see eJV or Kyle being traded anytime soon being that JV is about to sign a new deal and Kyle has a 15% trade kicker. We don't have shooters, we only have a handful of guys who can really run the floor and we have a rookie head coach. It has disaster written all over it. All I'm saying is get a proven scorer, simple and plain. i have no faith in Dillon Brooks or Josh Jackson or Kyle Anderson or Tyus Jones or Jae Crowder or anybody else on this roster to be a consistent scorer after JV and JJJ and it's not like I expect either of them to average 20 ppg. We're going to be terrible next year.

    Tyus Jones, Grizzlies agree to $28 million offer sheet

    Have no clue and really don't care. That was the perfect opportunity for him to rehab his image. Instead, he's nowhere around, no comments no nothing. Exactly how he did the Suns. I'm thinking there is a higher probability that this will be a move that we regret than the probability of him working out. I hope they trade him somehow.
