  1. Scrub love. Most posters on this board have it because we were so top heavy forever. Just 4-5 decent players and a pile of crap that they learned to love the crap also. It's like an abusive relationship from having to watch Andrew Harrison, Calathes, Jarrel MArtin, Shelvin Mack, Jordan Adams etc etc get minutes and be held up as potential great players. When the front office drafts crap for 10 years it also affects what you think a good young player looks like. A good young player looks like Jaren and BC. It doesn't look like Jontay Porter right now.
  2. You want shooting? What did Grayson shoot from 3 last year? The idea that Bane is starting over him is ludicrous. If he plays out of his mind he could win a starting spot, sure.
  3. Agree. We can just wait until the end of the season to see. If he can't stay healthy he can head on out.
  4. At this point I feel like we'll be lucky to see Justise play a game for the grizzlies
  5. Bane isn't starting over allen and melton and Porter isn't starting over Clarke. That's nonsense.

    Moving the needle

    I don't disagree. But as we get closer the caliber of player we need decreased. I would give it at least a year, maybe 2, and then try to make our move after re-signing JJJ (or, trading him for a big star. He is a cornerstone kind of player for that)

    waiting for the right deal, not chasing a bad one.

    Or teams in cap trouble trying to save money. Or places where the player is unhappy. Or somewhere where a team drafts a young star and the team wants to move on from a good player so it can be the new players team.

    You're making my point. Look at how many guys on that list moved the past 2 years Westbrook Kemba Kyrie Paul George Kawhi Jrue Conley Horford CP Tobias Harris D'Angelo Gallinari Bledsoe Hayward Of the top 50 list at the start of last season, 28% of them moved within 2 years. These players come available. You probably can't get a top 5 player in a trade but you can get a top 50 via trade or free agency. Situations change and these guys move on.

    Oubre is maybe around the 20th best wing in the league, which means he's a bottom half starter. You don't want to give up assets for a guy like that and you don't want to spend 18 million/year on him. Oh btw Phoenix played better when he was out in the bubble. Oladipo has injury issues and hasn't looked great coming back from them. Evan Fournier? Great putting up stats against crap eastern conference teams. How'd he do in the playoffs this year? These guys cost a lot of money and are only mild upgrades over say Dillon. And a big cap number can destory a team. Chandler parsons and his contract destroyed grit n grind and hamstrung us for 4 years. Some of us are not anxious to repeat that mistake. What's an impact player? An above average starter, somebody who is clearly a top 50 NBA player and top 10 at his position. FInd me that guy, not borderline starters. And those guys do get moved.
  11. Should tell you something when a lotteryn pick 2 years ago gets traded and promptly waived.
  12. Terminal scrub love. This board is rife with people who can't see players for what they are. Some of them still probably fantasize about Andrew Harrison and Nick Calathes

    in 2 years we're going to be entering the win now mode before we have to max or almost max Jaren and Ja and we're going to have all these contracts (maybe) sitting there. I just don't like overpaying. It's probably 2 million per year too much. The Konchar deal helps because he's on a fair contract and we have our guard depth taken care of now.

    Now that's a good deal.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agent Big Board 2020

    Agree. Go look at the rosters of the elite teams from last year Clippers: 2 max contracts, Morris 15, Beverly at 13, nobody else over 8 Celtics: Max Kemba and Hayward, smart at 13, nobody else over 8. Same thing this year, Hayward falls off and Jaylen high $ deal comes on Lakers: Lebron and Davis max, Green 15, Caldwell 8 Nuggets: Millsap 30, Jokic 26, Harris 17, Plumlee 14, Barton 12, Grant 9, nobody over 5 Melton's getting paid like the 4th or 5th best player on a championship roster, which he's not. He wouldn't start for any of those teams. Can't pay this much for depth.
