    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

  16. Haha. True. Garnett was and remains so underrated. Stuck on crappy TWolves team the majority of his prime. If JJJ is anywhere close to Garnett we should all be very happy.

    Kyle vs Bruno

    I'd really like to see Kyle, BC and Bruno play a lot of minutes together. They would be very interesting defensively together. I like Bruno as the backup C, BC as the backup PF and Kyle as the backup SF.

    Kyle vs Bruno

    I see Bruno's best fit more as backup center than SF.
  20. None of that answers why they prioritized a position of 15 minutes a game rather than a position where even the backup can play substantially more minutes. You know like combo guard or wing.

    2020 NBA Draft

    Who knows what the draft order will look like. A lot of these guys are going to move up and down. Projected positions could change. Extra picks aren't that valuable to us next year. We have enough young guys. We just need one more. The rest we should fill in with veterans. If we are top six and Edwards looks like our guy, and we don't think he'll fall to us, we have assets now where we could trade up.

    2020 NBA Draft

    If course it's possible to find a great perimeter scorer later in the draft but its much more likely the fourth up you go. We really are one player away from a great young core. We just need to find that one guy.

    2020 NBA Draft

    I don't think so. The Grizzlies really need a wing scorer. To get a good one of those you need to draft high.
  24. The question, if you boil it down is can Ja and Tyus play significant minutes together. I say that would be a bad pairing unless the opposing team is playing two small guards. Taller guards would roast them and neither is good enough off the ball offensively to warrant giving up that kind of mismatch defensively
  25. It depends what you mean. Do you mean the expected value they will provide for the rest of their career, the expected value they will provide for the Grizzlies for as long as they stay with them, or the expected value they will provide in the next season?
