    Memphis Hustle/G-League thread

    re: Josh Jackson. I think if he's not traded as filler this season, we are going to see him post All-Star break. The team will have some practices together and it would be the best moment to integrate him into the team's dynamics.

    It is time to talk about Jonas Valanciunas

    Hope so, but that's usually not the case. I remember when Pau and Marc were here in their respective stints a lot of Spanish fans were Grizzlies fans... when we were winning. Not a lot of fellow countrymen nowadays I think...
  3. If Jae is not traded he's resigning 100%. Move Iggy for whatever. Unless some team offers a 1st for Crowder, pass. Quite simple.

    Yes, Bruno's contract is guaranteed now. Still, I'm not expecting him to stay on the roster past the trade deadline, but I could be wrong.
  5. I don't think our recent success will change the FO's approach on the season, which is that of a young team with expendable assets. What I think (and I could be wrong) is that Crowder and Hill are going nowhere and will be resigned this off-season, the former for 10M and the latter for the vet-min. They are valuable veterans for a young team. I can see an Iguodala trade and nothing more and I would be more or less happy about it.

    Get Dillon Brooks out of this roster

    Yep. Always assuming that the first-round pick via Portland is highly protected (let's say TOP20 2020, TOP14 2021, TOP14 2022, if not conveyed it converts into two seconds in 2023 and 2024). We help Portland with luxury tax savings and a much needed defender in Iggy. Detroit will love some wing scoring, because right now their 2-3 rotation is putrid and they would like to make the playoffs. We got a kind of shooting prospect in Svi and a couple of picks. Is not highly lopsided for any of the three teams if you ask me.

    Get Dillon Brooks out of this roster

    I'm gonna leave this here:
  8. With him on the floor: ORtg: 102 (team worst if we don't count Bruno/Guduric). DRtg: 114 (5th worst). Net Rating: -12 (team worst). Win Shares: 0.030 (team worst aside of Guduric). Value Over Replacement Player: -0.2 (4th worst). Aside from the stats: he is a blackhole on offense. Every time a pass gets into his hands you know there is gonna be a wild shot or a turnover due to an ill-advised pass. Guy is 24, clearly can't adapt to a lesser role than the one he had at Oregon. RFA this summer, same as Melton. I would clearly pay the latter.
  9. I'm getting bald every time Dillon Brooks has the ball in his hands. For real.

    How far along are we

    I trust our FO right now. For sure they have a plan that includes the two first-round picks that we got this past summer (Utah and GSW). I could see them trying to trade for an above-average/below all-star shooting guard/small forward. A package of both picks plus Brooks (please, get Brooks out of this offense, he's an effing blackhole) may entice some teams (see Hield, Buddy and Beal, Bradley, although those guys would be a little bit of a reach). However, I fully expect them to throw a max to Brandon Ingram this summer or a 42/3 or similar to Malik Beasley.

    Marc back would even make sense. And I see Mike coming back in two years, btw. He is not going to be THAT old (34yo) and he could provide scoring and passing off the bench. Since in two years we should be a PO team, I don't think why that is not gonna be an option.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    Hope not or, at least, hope not for more than 5M per year. He has to be one of the most inefficient shooters I have seen. +15.9 points per possessions without him playing... I like the kid, but clearly doesn't know his role yet.
  13. Drazen Petrovic is the best FIBA basketball player ever, along with Sabonis and Pau. You're comparing him achievements-wise with Tony Allen. And I'm a fan of Allen's defense, but c'mon...

    I guess Kyle is the back-up point guard now. Ja/Melton Brooks/Jackson/Allen Crowder/Bruno/Hill Jaren/Kyle/Clarke Jonas/Plumlee I guess Rabb, Dwight and Iggy are out. So roster at 13. I would throw the MLE to somebody, but I don't know who, to be honest.
