    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.
