  1. Clarke makes me excited about Grizz future. Feel like he's karma making up for the Drew Gooden and Stromile Swift picks.
  2. Kind of weird that most of the Minny fans that regularly watched Tyus play liked him and wanted to keep him, yet a bunch of Grizz fans that haven't or barely watched him don't like the move. Delon might be the better overall player, but he's had four more years than Tyus to get better (27 vs 23), and he's probably going to be starting for Dallas. He wouldn't have been happy here coming off the bench behind a rookie, and we don't need unhappy players around our young nucleus. Tyus has been in the league for 4 seasons, but he's only four months older than Brandon Clarke. Do people think Clarke won't get better? Tyus fits our age range, and given his passing ability will have chemistry with anyone. Every teammate will love having him on the court because they'll know if they get open there's a good chance he'll get them the ball. The money isn't a big deal. Players get paid more now. 9 mil now is like 4.5 mil years back. Regardless of the number, it's still just the MLE. The same thing we used to sign Brian Cardinal (granted that was Jerry West throwing it in the face of management). Tyus is 23, an elite passer, fits our age range, has no history of on or off court issues, fans like him, and he wants to be here. That's worth the MLE. He's not the best shooter, but that's not his job. He's not a shooting guard. He's a backup PG that needs to hold down the fort while Morant is out of the game, and get the ball in the hands of the player in the best position to score while minimizing turnovers, and he's statistically one of the best at that. I think he'll be what we wanted Nick Calathes to be.

    I doubt Hill would take a buyout. He's not going to get another big contract, or have many teams knocking down his door, so can't see him agreeing to take less money.

  5. Wanted to keep Delon, but I'm ok with the outcome of Tyus Jones and 2 2nds for him. Tyus has his weaknesses, but seems to be an elite passer. Instead of looking to score, he'll get the ball where it needs to be, and help initiate highlight plays.
  6. Don't know if already posted, but article about matching Tyus. A lot of comments at bottom. Most seem to like Tyus.

    Grizz wouldn't want to take on Batum's contract. He'll opt into his 27 mil next season.

    Someone probably already mentioned it, but if Mavs are interested in Iggy and Delon, I wonder if Grizz do a Iggy and Delon sign and trade to Mavs.

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    I missed alot of it. Keenan Evans looked good from what I saw. Has a nice 3pt shot, and looks confident, granted it's summer league.

    Forgot about game with cavs after all the trades, but looks like Watanabe having another good game.
  12. I don't think a team can trade nothing for something, so if Lakers, or whoever want Iggy, they can sign and trade us a min contract player with 2nds, cash consideration, whatever, with the understanding of us buying him out so he can sign with them.

    Regardless of how these moves pan out, this has been a great and exciting offseason for the new Grizz front office, and gives hope for the team moving forward. So many moves in the past were bad when we made them, nevermind 20/20 hindsight. I haven't seen an on paper bad move yet this offseason. Their "worst" trade is probably giving up a 2nd to move up 2 spots in the draft, and that netted Brandon Clarke, so it's not even a bad move. Unless it turns out we gave Marko a ridiculous 2 year deal, which I doubt, this has been a phenomenal offseason, and I expect there's still going to be more trades to come.
  14. If not buying out Iggy hurts the perception of the front office, and prevents us from landing big free agents, then we should have bought out Iggy years ago. If we buy him out, then so be it. At least we saved some money, but 17m expiring contracts have value. If the front office deems the buyout the best move for the team moving forward, then buy him out, but if there's better options for the team, you take them. Guys don't want to play for Memphis because it's Memphis. It doesn't matter what the perception of our front office is. Who was lining up to sign when we had Jerry West?
