    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I'm not offering picks for a Joe Harris sign and trade. If you want a Harris type player, Duncan Robinson is a free agent the following year. He's younger and every bit the equal as a shooter. Plus the Heat are going to be preoccupied chasing bigger fish. Make a fat offer and steal him away...in a year we have cap space, without sacrificing picks. By the way, eight first round picks the next six years is not some astounding number. Realistically, you would like to add at least one every year. Because six years from now, you won't be the youngest team in the league. You need to keep building the talent base to replace players who don't pan out or ones you can't afford. Especially in a small market like Memphis, cost controlled contracts are very, very important. I'm not above trading picks. I am not doing it in a sign and trade unless it is for a big time player.

    Even if they do, they aren't claiming him off waivers. No room for the contract. They are looking at signing him to a vet min. That will offset some but not much.

    Let's talk about this. Is he? I don't see him a rotation level player. He was bad on a terrible Suns team. He has been bad with us (small sample size is the only defense to that). His PER is lower than Guduric's. Guduric shoots better from the field, 3 point, and free throws. Guduric has been a better playmaker, averaging more assists per game, more per 36 minutes, and a better assists to turnover ratio. So what about the defense? His defense has been OK. His defensive rating is 110, which is consistent with some of the other guys on our team known as defenders- Jaren 110, Kyle 109, Melton 107. (Guduric is 113) So does that offset the poor offense? Well the gap between Jaren's offensive rating and his defensive rating is -1. Kyle +2, Melton 0, Jonas +11 (that one shocked me), Guduric -20 (terrible), Josh -30 (can we invent a word that is this much worse than terrible???) Let me be clear: Guduric is terrible and should only play in the rarest of circumstances. But Josh Jackson so far has been worse. His history in Phoenix suggests this is who he is. You all can keep holding out hope for him, but I am ready to move on already.

    Different circumstances. When Lebron entered the league, league average was in the 47s. He’s always been better that the league. Context matters

    Would not have bothered me. But that's because I think we took 3 bad contracts back. I know I am in the minority. I am just not a Winslow fan at that price nor do I think he has some superb upside. He's an improvement on our bench. Yet we took on the type of money you typically take on to get a star.

    He shot 43%, not 44%, but my main thing is effective FG% was 49.7%. That is NOT GOOD. That is worse than Kyle Anderson each of the last 3 years. League average for effective FG% this season is 52.6%. I'm glad you think that his 18-19 season was good; I don't. He had a negative BPM. His PER was a career high 12.8 (15 is league average). He was a negative when he played. AND THAT WAS HIS BEST YEAR. I think he is a solid bench player. He is not worth $13 million. My main problem with this trade is you paid the price of acquiring a superstar by taking two crap contracts and you got Justise Winslow, an injury prone bench guy.

    Wow. In my opinion, you can't say his floor is Kyle when he's never been as good as Kyle. I guess it depends what you want. If you want raw numbers, you like Justise. If you prefer efficiency and overall impact on wins, you like Kyle. All the advanced statistics say Kyle is better. Even defensively, where Justise has this tremendous reputation, Kyle has the advantage in all the advanced statistics. I'm not saying Justise is bad. He's a solid rotation player (WHEN HE PLAYS) but he's the 7th to 10th man.

    I disagree with this so, so much. Waiters is terrible. He scores points, not because he is good at it, just because he takes a ton of shots. Hill is not a good player either. The difference between the two is Hill plays a role where Waiters wants to be the man. Waiters is TERRRRRRRIIIIIBBBBLLLLLE. He is the epitome of putting up numbers on a bad team. The best part of this is you're right. He's gone. Thank you Jesus. And we don't have to worry about it.

    @smit-tay griz That's where he said it Edit: Wait I was saying that he said Harris was better than Winslow.

    ehhhh....maybe. I think Dillon is probably better one on one and definitely better at creating his own shot. I think Joe Harris adds more to an offense with his shooting and the spacing it creates. I get that Dillon is shooting over 40% from 3 but, so far, he is not treated the same as the elite shooters. So he doesn't have the same gravity as Harris. However, I think had Brooks been an unrestricted FA, like Harris, he also would have commanded more than $13 million. On a side note, if Winslow had not been picked so high, his production would have never warranted $13 million a year.

    That is the point he was making. To the guy saying Justise was better than Harris, the easiest way to find out is watch Joe Harris get paid more than the $13 million Winslow is making.
  13. I love Jaren and Brandon together. Without doing any research, my eyes say they have been the best closing lineup for us.

    I can't believe you had to explain to someone why Joe Harris is better than Justise Winslow. If they don't get it, they have no clue what is important in the NBA today. No skill is more important than shooting these days. Joe Harris is an ELITE shooter. Justise Winslow is not elite at anything, despite his reputation. All of that is before you get to the health concerns. I feel bad about having to say all of this because I think Justise is a solid player. He should be in someone's rotation. I don't think he is starter on a championship team material. My complaint is we just paid superstar price for someone who is going to be our 7th to 10th best player.....if he actually plays.

    Dion Waiters is TERRIBLE at NBA basketball. That's before you get to the trouble he causes which has been going on since he was at Syracuse.
