    Winslow??

    Yes, for deal construction you sometimes do need mid-sized contracts. But I think that also depends on whether we're operating over the cap. There's a decent chance we could be under the cap and hence the salaries coming back don't have to match. Incidentally this matching salaries thing within, what, 20%, is ridiculous. It just hinders trades and deals. I think front offices are sufficiently sophisticated now where the rule can be mostly done away with. I'm not even sure what problem it's supposed to be fixing. The bigger problem is all the buyout stuff happening. IMO NBA should make players released after the trade deadline non-playoff eligible.

    Grizzlies/NBA trade deadline 2021 and beyond

    They misevaluated badly. For some reason they thought bledsoe was the more important guard than Brogdon and figured they could only pay one and then they couldn't wait to get away from Bledsoe within a year. Whoops.

    Winslow??

    it's a great question. Will he even get the MLE? Melton makes 9 and they want to more than double that?

    When you don't have to have the contract at all it's better than an "expiring." Front offices figured out the expiring stuff several years ago, they're hardly worth anything now because everybody is on these shorter term deals. If you want to do that, go sign a useful guy who might get the biannual exception to a 1 year 13 million dollar contract.

    21 million a year for a dude averaging 8.5 ppg who shoots 27% from 3. By the way he shoots that getting open looks because the other team is concerned about Lebron or Davis or both. Hard pass. the hardest pass possible. I mean, given this evaluation we should supermax Grayson.

    This is like 2003 TImberwolves GM strategy. Just because you have cap space doesn't mean you should waste it because its there. Just wait and bide your time. Opportunities will present themselves. There are free agents in 2022 also. And 2023 and 2024 etc. Every year there are free agents.

    there's no trade for winslow because his option isn't getting picked up. Or it shouldn't be.

  9. Kispert looked bad in both final 4 games to me. Seriously has cooled me on him.

    What is a Superstar really?

    What % of games has JJJ played while with the grizzlies? is it even 50%?

    What is a Superstar really?

    We did that because he was carrying the team down the stretch of every game last year. He'd kinda hang back and score 8-10 for the first 3 quarters and go get bucket after bucket in the 4th. He's stopped doing that. He's also more passive offensively and is in a funk because of his 3 point shooting. He needs to correct his shot.

    It’s a mentality that the entire organization has, with both the Grizzlies and the Hustle believing in it. Whether it was Sam Merrill, Sean McDermott, or another player, Jason March preached the “next shot” mentality to the Hustle in the bubble in Orlando. Both coaches have preached to their teams to take open shots from distance and not to dwell on misses as long as they are good shots. Told some of ya'll (ahem @Dwash) that it was the team's philosophy. Everybody is supposed to chuck. Now it is on Justise to improve his shooting this offseason and if he doesn't then they shouldn't resign him long term. So thats why i am not mad at him for taking the open shot. Now if he was doing off the dribble step back 35ft shots that would be a problem. I still believe they will pick up his option and give him a full offseason to fully improve. I am good with that as long as he stays healthy. That's a great philosophy for developing players but it's not optimal if you actually want to win games. Get your best guys more shots and the other guys take open shots or defined shots. Everybody on portland doesn't just let fly i crunch time, they get it to Dame. Same with the Lakers, get it to lebron or davis, the clippers get to their stars etc etc.

    Predict JJJ's Return

    FO is tanking. JJJ isn't playing this year until new orleans or somebody safely ahead of us

    Utah Jazz @ Memphis Grizzlies - 3/31/21

    I've decided the FO is doing everything they can to tank. They're hoping we fall to 11 and NO catches us. That's the strategy with JJJ.
