    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    The Pistons currently have Marvin Bagley, Luka Garza, Jalen Duren, Kelly Olynyk, Isaiah Stewart,and Nerlens Noel on their team (and may possibly still go after Ayton according to rumors). i would assume they are going to make some trades

    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    You can always trade players. I don't buy into this, don't give them an option or give them a 2 year deal. Most players aren't signing 2 year deals. That puts a lot of the risk on them. Players are traded all of the time, good contracts, bad contracts, players get traded. Tyus is a useful player would easily be traded. As far as maxing out Bane, if we do that, we might as well hang it up. Not every player who starts and scores over 15 ppg needs to be a max player. I think we will start to see more and more situations like Westbrook and John Wall happening in this league as they keep giving these players these humongous contracts. At some point, more and more teams will look like the Lakers who have $128 million wrapped up in 3 players. Those 3 players alone put them over the cap.I don't want to be in a situation like that, especially with a small market team. If Bane avg 25 ppg this season and expands both his offensive and defensive game, sure, let's consider near max, but not max. If he balks and demands a max, trade him. Ja is the only max player on this roster right now.

    Hadn't heard the asking price but I assume that's just them leaking stuff to the media to try and increase the return.

    I agree but I think that is not going to be good for us. I think as it stands right now, we may have already fallen behind a couple teams for no other reason than those teams will be healthy next season. If we don't sign anyone and use rookies to replace Melt, Tyus and KA, it lets me know that the FO isn't trying to win aggressively. Which is not that big of a deal, their timeline appears to be longer than people's timelines on this board. I know people don't wanna hear it cause they still are living off the highs of having the second best record in the league but we could easily be back down in play-in contention this season if we don't make any moves. Ja is nice but Ja also gets injured a lot. We won't have Tyus to come in as the bus driver to manage things and keep things rolling. We don't have any offensively aggressive players outside of Dillon on this team. Also, I think teams are figuring out different ways of slowing Ja down and we don't have any players that really step up. Dillon is the only one that tries and he gets castigated on this board for trying. Our defense is nice obviously anchored by JJJ and Dillon but Melt and KA contributed to that nice defense and they are gone. Unless we acquire a vet or two, I'm predicting we drop to the 6-8 seed next year if all other teams are healthy. I wouldn't rule out them trading Dillon for cap space/draft picks either. I just don't think the f.o. cares about trying to win it all this season. I would assume there are teams that would do a s&t for him but that would include the Grizz having to play nice and accept whatever comes back in the trade. If SA trades Murray, I could see them trying to figure out a way to get Tyus.

    Oladipo is looking to go to Sac or somewhere like that to "increase his value", ie, take every shot available so he can get a bigger contract next year. He shouldn't be an option at this point.

    You can always trade him. I think Tyus will command around MLE or slightly more, somewhere between $10-$12 million. He would be easily tradable. If we can find a cheaper option great but I think Ja is good for missing 15-20 games a year so we probably don't want to skimp too much on a backup PG. If that's the case, let's just go in with Chandler as the backup PG. My overall point is, we need some type of vet as a backup at least for 1 more year, if not 2 more years to allow Chandler to adjust. If it's Tyus, fine, we maintain continuity and hold on to him for 1 maybe 2 years at the max, if it's someone else, fine. Same situation, just hold on for 1 or 2 more years.

    Well, looks like another change in Green contract. Guarantee date extended to Jan 10th

    I would do a 4 year, avg $12 mil per year with a player option for the 3rd year. That way, it will give Chandler 2 years to adjust to the NBA and allow Tyus to re-enter FA possibly in a more PG friendly market where more teams looking for PGs have cpa space.

    Chris Vernon threw out an interesting name in Collin Sexton. He's coming off of an injury and probably won't have the market he should. Just use him off the bench as a scorer, a microwave player. Although I just saw an update saying he is expecting a contract of at least $20 mil per (and CLE ain't going for that) One name that I forgot about is TJ Warren since he's been out so long with foot injuries. He was cleared with like 3 weeks left to go but Indy left him out. I wouldn't mind having him as a scorer off of the bench. Probably will be a little above the MLE as he has to prove himself again. Not very efficient but as a bench player, he would just need to fill it up and give us double digits (13 ppg or so) off of the bench

    Jake LaRavia

    The Athletic has a pretty good write up on LaRavia (really good spot up shooter, not good at being a pull up shooter). Speaking of which, they had listed their top 100 players before the draft (I think I saw someone post the link somewhere) and a write up on all of them. LaRavia came in at #22 (and was drafted at 19 so sounds like they were in alignment), Kennedy Chandler came in at 36 (was taken at 38, once again, in alignment). David Roddy was taken at 23 yet The Athletic had him at 62 and Vince Williams at 61 (he was drafted 47). I find the big discrepancy with Roddy interesting. Obviously, Vicente is not an NBA f.o. person but the other picks were fairly close.

    Where Do We Stand?

    I clearly said things could change in FA and once trade season opens up. I also clearly laid out teams who could potentially be better because they are healthier than they were last season, not due to a FA signing or trade. Some teams have superstars returning that didn't play last year. Not sure how that wasn't clear. Zion returning to a Pels team that acquired CJ McCollum last year, the Clips returning Kawhi and PG (who barely player last year), not to mention the potential of Wall going there. It's just a recognition that there were several key injuries on a lot of teams last year and if they are healthy this year, I just wonder if we will still be a top 2 seed. Just merely throwing it out for discussion.

    Where Do We Stand?

    Obviously, free agency hasn't started yet but I just wanted to get an idea on where people feel we stand right now going into next season? Better? Worse? You in it for the long game so it doesn't matter if we fall back? Just looking at the standings from last year, I'm wondering if we will even be a top 6 seed next year: Last year's standings: Phoenix-Who knows what happens with Ayton. I'm assuming he stays there. I will say they are ahead of us at the moment Us Golden State- If GS stays healthy next season, they more than likely will have a better record than us Dallas- Dallas had a rocky start with a new coach in Jason Kidd but was on fire after the All Star Break. I'm assuming they will have a better record than us next year if things stay as they are Utah- They suck and will probably blow their team up so we should be ahead of them Denver- Jamal Murray will return to a team with a 2 x MVP. There's pretty good reason to believe they will at least be comparable when it comes to wins Minny- Still the dumbest team in the NBA but they have a lot of talent, I think they will be bunched in with us, Denver, etc Pelicans- Zion will be healthy (who knows how long) but if he stays healthy, they will exceed us. Zion is better than anyone on our team, B. Ingram and CJ McCollum are better than anyone on our team not named Ja. If they are healthy, they more than likely will be better than us Clippers- John Wall will sign with the Clips so if Wall, Kawhi and PG are all healthy, yes, they will probably be better than us. Spurs-We should still be better Who knows what happens with the Lakers BUT, I see 5 teams that can clearly be better than us next year (PHX, GS, DAL, NOP, and LAC) and then I see another 2 or 3 teams that may be just as good (DEN, Minny, and maybe LAL) depending on the moves they make. Obviously, so much of this hinges on team health, chemistry and moves made during FA but I'm wondering if we will take a massive step back next year, especially if we are planning on relying on a bunch of rookies to contribute next season.

    Actually, that may work because JJJ plays like a SF (and they were teammates at MSU). I mean, it's not that big of a deal to me but that would be s&t I would pursue but it's less than a 5% chance it would even be discussed.
