    ZBo 2.0

    I have an idea for a bold move the Grizzly should make this off season. Haven't posted on this board in a long time but figured I'd come back to hear people's opinions on this. We should sign DeMarcus Cousins this off-season. He's a big time talent we could actually sign. For less than the max. Much less. Other teams aren't going to take the chance on signing him to a long deal. He is a perfect pairing with JJJ. They could easily play together of each other. We saw how a low post scorer rebounder worked out last year in Jonas V. Boogie, when healthy, is a much better version. If we strike out, what do we have to lose? It's not like this team is anywhere close to completing for a championship in the next four years. And if Boogie returns to form we speed up our timeline by a lot.

    What Can Be Done to Keep JJJ on the floor? What Options Do We Have?

    JJJ just needs to learn from Clarke how to play straight up and down and not reach. He will get it.
  3. I, for one, definitely wanted Luka. I thought he was an incredible prospect. I really didn't want Bagley though. Looking back I was too down on Bagley and too high on Ayton.

    Grizzlies sign Marko Guduric

    JWill was a good shooter. He just had terrible shot selection

    Grizzlies sign Marko Guduric

    Eddie Jones was a pretty good shooter. J-Will was a good shooter too, although not half as good as he thought he was.

    preseason team summary

    No 3 pt FGAs from Clarke is a little disappointing. After the summer league I was hoping he'd have the confidence to at least try a couple. Grayson Allen's play has been better than expected. Ja looks like the real deal. Still wish we had gotten that number one pick and Zion though.

    What Should We Do if We Luck Into The #1 Pick In 2020?

    Draft BPA unless it's a PG. I don't know who that is yet though. If it's Wiseman, he doesn't have to start right away.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I think the Grizzlies ought to have learned their lesson about signing free agents who are known for dating Instagram models

    I love the Grizzlies. I like watching the Warriors sans Kevin Durant. I don't really like any other teams. I used to like watching the Spurs but not lately. The new Hawks squad is fun to watch. The teams I most dislike are the Lakers, the Clippers, the Bulls, the Knicks, the Nets and the Celtics. Basically I always cheer for small market teams over large market. The South over the North. Team basketball over Heroball.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I don't know why it took them this long or why other contenders aren't interested. I think he can really help a team.

    The jury is still out on JV. We need to see him as a starter for a full season. The indicators on him contradict each other. On one hand, his box score stats look really good. On the other, real plus minus has never been high on him. Toronto clearly didn't think much of trading him away for an aging Marc Gasol. Memphis made him highly paid, but hedged their bets by only signing him for three years. What matters is how much he can help the Grizzlies outscore the competition, not how good his box score looks. Which is why his real plus minus is troubling. Usually though, a guy with a PER as high as JVs will have a high rpm too. So maybe it was just measurement error and small sample size that explains his low rpm. I don't know but we shall see.

    Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

    Daniel House would be pretty good return

    Free agency 2020

    Obviously we don't trade away Ja or JJJ, but if we got a top pick next year combined with some future picks could be awfully tempting to some team. The point I am trying to make is that you never know what future situations will come up and our front office shouldn't have definite plans about what they are going to do but should assess things as they are happening with an eye to the future and take advantage of whatever opportunities arise.

    Free agency 2020

    What if next off-season new management for the Wizards decide it's time to do a full rebuild and put Bradley Beal on the market. You wouldn't want the Grizzlies to try to put together a package of picks (assuming we have a high pick next year) to try to get Beal? What about Devin Booker? Or Otto Porter? You never know who is going to be available.

    There is a fourth option:. Trade assets for a good player

    Which wing will have the most productive season?

    All those guys have big holes in their games. I think Melton has the best strength, so I think he'll get the most playing time.

    Fan favorite of all time

    Shane Battier is my favorite Grizzly.

    2020 NBA Draft

    I agree. Plus if we get a top pick next year we can use our cap space to sign some good veterans and try to be good in 2021.

    Free agency 2020

    Neither LaVert not Beasley will come cheap. In order to sign a restricted free agent you almost always have to overpay. Much more fiscally responsible to Target unrestricted.

    Grizzlies sign Marko Guduric

    Moxie?!? Please, Manu's talent is the reason he succeeded. His European stats where way more impressive than Jacobsen's. Not even remotely comparable. Manu was the best player in the league. He won two Italian League MVPs and a EuroLeague Finals MVP. Casey was just a guy. I think Marko is better than that but let's not throw around Manu or Luka comparisons.

    make or break

    Odds are overwhelming that Josh's option is not picked up.

    Free agency 2020

    Restricted Free Agent means he won't be a Grizzly.
  23. kevofrommempho

    Free agency 2020

    This. Unrestricted free agent. Nets are probably going to have to spend the rest of their money on LaVert. We desperately need good wings. Joe Harris is solid.

    Kyle vs Bruno

    Iggy is clearly the best of the bunch, but he's not the answer long term. His main value to us is what we can get for him in a trade. Playing him exposes him to injury risk. Even if we don't trade him until the deadline, I doubt he plays a minute for the Grizzlies.

    The "Rebuild" is over guys...this team will compete next season.

    Moving goal posts. It is evident that dominant centers can get plenty of endorsement deals. Especially if they win.
