    the suns should be getting a level of cynicism and disrespect that's akin to the spurs level of trust the system respect

    How are the suns not picked last?

    Who are the scrubs on our team?

    I don't see it with Yuta. Nice guy, great effort but just doesn't have the skills/athleticism needed

    I hope plumlee doesn't read this board.

    because I think Ja will do something in the NBA. He's the #2 pick in the draft. Look at Hill's stats and tell me why he's in the league even. The only reason is a stupid contract that New Orleans gave him. Stupid contract doesn't unmake a scrub. His career FG% is 39% and he's 33% from 3. He's average defensively. He's just a scrub. If he were on a minimum deal he'd have been cut 2 years ago. I guess the problem here is I don't have another category for relatively meaningless players like Plumlee. I am not going to die on the Miles Plumlee hill. I just think Solomon Hill is way worse than Plumlee, how about that? I can squint and see where Plumlee can give you reserve-quality minutes. I can't do that with Solomon Hill.

    To convey or not to convey

    Agree. We got lucky last season. I was ok with chasing playoffs but once it became apparent we weren't good enough the fact that we did some halfway tank/not tank job was ludicrous

    Memphis Grizzlies vs Boston Celtics - 7/11/19

    I guess we'll see, I assume whoever he is traded to would just cut him anyway so unless it's a very narrow salary window it wouldn't be necessary

    Plumlee has been in the NBA for 10-11 years, always in a backup big/4th big man kind of role. He's a back-end rotation player who's probably on his way out, but he isn't a scrub By scrub I mean somebody who's never done anything and never will. Plumlee is a journeyman but actually can do things (rebound, defend, shoot a high percentage on layups/dunks)

    What sort of deal is going down on a player who can't make the roster of the 3rd-4th worst team in the league?
  11. This is actually a primer for the board so they can reference in future instead of moaning about how they wish we hadn't given up on . . . Scrubs: Solomon Hill Bruno Ivan Rabb Yuta TBD (but probably are): Grayson Allen Konchar Melton Not scrubs: Ja JJJ Iggy JV Plumlee T. Jones Slomo Crowder Brooks Brandon Clarke Headcases (mental scrubs): Howard Josh Jackson Only the bolded players are actually meaningful NBA players.

    Roster Moves

    It will be a shocker if he isn't waived. He shows nothing.

    Roster Moves

    Be thankful we didn't. Wallace probably would have included a future first to get payne since he was a highly rated prospect at some point. This offseason serves to emphasize how little Wallace understood about roster construction, salary cap, what other teams are trying to do, etc.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    The clippers can build through free agency because they're in L.A. Other teams can't do that because they're not.

    How many draft picks do the Grizzlies have?

    I dunno, Presti sort of backed into 3 generational players in Durant, Harden, and Westbrook as well as an all-star caliber player in Serge Ibaka and then somehow got Oladipo in a trade because Orlando didn't know what they were doing and parlayed that into PG13. He then squandered all that by not cutting Kendrick Perkins and giving out stupid contracts, and couldn't surround 3 generational players and 2 all-stars with jack squat. OKC has been the right place right time franchise the past 12 years. I'm looking forward to seeing how amazing their fans are and their organization is when they don't have a minimum of 2 Hall-of-famers on their roster. My suspicion is, not great because look at their ancillary moves and coaching decisions. What disasters.
