    2016 Draft Diamonds&Busts

    I am looking at 2016 draft and trying to find Diamonds,Busts and players Grizz can target next summer. (it's dog days of summer and i am bored). UNDRAFTED PLAYERS STILL IN NBA 0⭐️Two Way Players 1.Josh Gray 26 New Orleans Pelicans 2.Damion Lee 26 Golden State Warriors 0.5⭐️Minimum Non Guaranteed 3.Shaquille Harrison 25 Chicago Bulls $898,310 ($175,000) 1⭐️Minimum 4.Derrick Jones Jr. 22 Miami Heat $1,645,357 5.David Nwaba 26 Brooklyn Nets $1,678,854 1.5⭐️ 6.Alex Caruso 25 Los Angeles Lakers $2,750,000 7.Ryan Arcidiacono 25 Chicago Bulls $3,000,000 8.Yogi Ferrell 26 Sacramento Kings $3,150,000 9.Danuel House 26 Houston Rockets $3,540,000 10.Dorian Finney-Smith 26 Dallas Mavericks $4,000,000 No one from these players can move a needle for the Grizz. 2.5-3⭐️SOLID NBA PLAYER 11.Bryn Forbes 26 San Antonio Spurs $2,875,000 Bryn Forbes review https://www.poundingtherock.com/2019/5/17/18617545/2018-2019-spurs-player-reviews-bryn-forbes Solid 2.5⭐️option for the Grizz. Fantastic volume 3P shooter not the best defender a bit undersized for shooting guard and 26 years old. My prediction 8-12 mil. range. Can he move a needle for the Memphis? I would say yes but for 26y old. From all undrafted 2016 class best fit. UNDRAFTED DIAMOND #1 3.5⭐️ 12.Fred VanVleet 25 Toronto Raptors $9,346,153 Fred VanVleet review https://www.raptorsrepublic.com/2019/06/28/2018-19-player-review-fred-vanvleet/ https://www.raptorshq.com/2019/6/28/18715079/toronto-raptors-2018-19-player-review-fred-vanvleet Best undrafted player by a mile.

    BAD CONTRACTS 2020

    So, in summer 2020 if we are not able to get anyone decent, we can spend our 50M on bad contracts and get rewarded with 1st round picks. Lets see all the bad contracts. Atlanta Hawks not only they don't have any bad contracts in the summer 2020, they are so clean they will have 83M in Cap. They will go after every available good free agent and after every bad contract. Major competitors for the Grizz in that regard. Boston Celtics has 1 bad contract we could take for compensation. Gordon Hayward He will be given every opportunity to succeed this season , if he is not able to return to his Utha form, 100% he will opt in with his max $34,187,085 contract and Boston will try to get him off their cap sheet. Brooklyn Nets does not have any bad contracts atm, but i could see in summer 2020, possibility of declining DeAndre Jordan He still will be left with 3y/30M and we could take him as a backup for a pick. Charlotte Hornets has 2 bad ones and possibly disaster that is Terry Rozier, but they just going to eat those contracts and not going to give up any picks. So in summer 2020 nothing for us from them. Nicolas Batum 1y/27M Cody Zeller 1y/15.5M Terry Rozier 2Y/37M Chicago Bulls has 1 bad small contract and they are going to eat it. Nothing for us. Cristiano Felicio 1y/7.5M Cleveland Cavaliers even if Kevin Love is bad this year and they can't trade him, bottom dwellers are not going to give us any picks for him nor should we take this massive contract (if Love is that bad). Kevin Love 3y/90M Dallas Mavericks 1 contract they would like to get rid off is Tim Hardaway Jr. 1y/19M PO, but i don't think they will pay 1st for it. Tim Hardaway Jr. 1y/19M Detroit Pistons Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond are overpaid but they are good and useful players and won't be salary dumped ...Tony Snell 1y/12M player option will probably will be eaten, but if Pistons needs help we are there to help them. Tony Snell 1y/12M PO Golden State Warriors no bad contracts at the first glance, but IMO Draymond Green has a chance to become bad in a years time. Houston Rockets if things goes wrong they might try to offload 3y/132.5 Russell Westbrook to a sucker, we should stay away from that cancer no matter what picks are they offering.Clint Capela 3y/51M and Eric Gordon 3y/54.5M in 2020 looks good atm, but if anything changes we would be happy to help. Russell Westbrook 3y/132.5 Indiana Pacers the only badish contract i see is 1y/7.3 M Doug McDermott and it will be eaten by the Pacers. Doug McDermott 1y/7.3 M Los Angeles Clippers no bad contracts. Los Angeles Lakers no bad contracts. Memphis Grizzlies no bad contracts and more than 50M in cap...the future looks good. Miami Heat will have 3 bad expiring contracts and even they can eat some we can help with the ones they don't want to eat. James Johnson 1y/16M PO Dion Waiters 1Y/12.5 Kelly Olynyk 1Y/12M PO Milwaukee Bucks no bad contracts. Brook Lopez 3y/40 could become one. Minnesota Timberwolves 2 bad contracts Gorgui Dieng 1y/17 we should be happy to take Andrew Wiggins 3y/94M should be hard pass. Gorgui Dieng 1y/17 Andrew Wiggins 3y/94M New Orleans Pelicans no bad contracts. New York Knicks (wow) no bad contracts. Oklahoma City Thunder 2 bad contracts Dennis Schröder 1y/15.5 we should be happy to take Chris Paul 2y/85.5M should be hard pass. Steven Adams is overpayed 1y/27.5 but is good. Chris Paul 2y/85.5M Dennis Schröder 1y/15.5 Orlando Magic no really bad contracts but Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier are overpayed. Philadelphia 76ers no bad contracts. Phoenix Suns no really bad contracts but Devin Booker and Ricky Rubio are overpayed. Portland Trail Blazers no bad contracts. Sacramento Kings no bad contracts but Harrison Barnes is overpayed. San Antonio Spurs no bad contracts. Toronto Raptors no bad contracts and 93M in cap. Utah Jazz 1 bad contract we could take. Dante Exum 1y/9.6M Washington Wizards Worst contract in the NBA we should stay away. John Wall 3y/133M

    BAD CONTRACTS 2020

    Potentially another bad contract. Markelle Fultz, PG Orlando (ORL) exercised $12.29 million option for 2020-21

    Free agency 2020

    So...2020 free agent class is not the best, but there are some very good RFA who are getable by overpaying. Memphis will be flush with a cap space and maybe there is a chance to get someone. Anthony Davis,Draymond Green are unrealistic. Andre Drummond,DeMar DeRozan,DeMarcus Cousins not suitable for the Grizz timeline. Pascal Siakam will get the max from the Raptors. Can we get one of those? Brandon Ingram Jaylen Brown Domantas Sabonis Dejounte Murray Buddy Hield Caris LeVert IMO 2020 free agents are not that good or like AD and Draymond Green are unrealistic. So if i am Grizz GM i'll wait with my cap space at the beginning of free agency and then offer poison pill contracts to the RFA above. If strike out....just rent caspase for expiring bad contracts and collect compensation, but if Grizz successful in getting one of those RFA and maybe getting top 6 pick....2020/2021 could be the time to go for it. So who would you like? and how much are you willing to pay?
  7. WHO IS PLAYING? 32 TEAMS A LIST Lithuania Serbia Spain Greece France Australia USA 7 teams B LIST Argentina Italy Turkey Brazil Germany Canada 6 teams C SCRUBS 19 teams Can C SCRUBS beat any A list team? NO Can C SCRUBS beat any B list team?...possible very unlikely Which scrub has a chance to beat a B lister? Russia and Nigeria 20% chance both v Argentina Czech Republic 20% chance v Turkey Montenegro 25% v Brazil Can B Listers beat any A list team? possible very unlikely Italy 10% chance v Serbia Turkey 5% v USA Brazil 5% v Greece Canada 10% v Lithuania Who is going to be in the quarter Finals?Semi finals?etc Because of horrible draw made to help hosts China we will have a scrub in Quarter finals.

Greece v USA it's just a game for bragging rights meaningless in a big picture, for me Greece are favorites but some other ppl might see it differently. Greece and USA are going to be in the quarterfinals. They will meat Lithuania Australia or France. 1 A LIST TEAM Lithuania Australia or France GOING HOME BEFORE QUARTERFINALS. Any of Lithuania France Australia Greece and USA can be in a SF and a Final V Serbia where they be 40/60 underdogs. So why team USA only 50/50 vs Lithuania France Australia Greece and underdogs against Serbia? Perception. Is NBA the best league in a world?YES Do the best players play in the NBA?YES NBA has 450 players are they are the best in a world?NO ....People who watch only NBA have no idea about the players in Euroleague. So who plays in the NBA? 25 or so stars. How many of those do you have?Zero.... Greece has 1 and so is Serbia. NBA has 100-120 good players.100 average players and 200-250 scrubs dreamers and prospects. How good are Euroleague starters on A list teams? They are as good as 100-200 NBA players. Why are they not in NBA? They are older not enough upside for them to be a star. Role players in NBA and Europe are similar. NBA guys more athletic Euro guys better basketball IQ and basketball skills. European teams are playing for years together USA is a pick up team. Top 25 players can make a difference with any team ...but 11 top 100 and a Mason Plumlee can not. FIBA pretends is FIFA 32 teams are a joke. 32 Team Football world cup is fun as upset can happen in (almost) every game. Everyone can play football. Who can play Basketball? USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and like 15 European countries. Not all the best European teams are even in the World cup. We are missing Slovenia and Luka ( European Champions) Latvia and Kristaps Croatia and Bogdan. It is my opinion and feel free to disagree.

    Prospects Dreamers and Busts

    Fits with Jaren and Ja: Dillon Brooks https://www.grizzlybearblues.com/2019/9/16/20861040/fits-with-jaren-jackson-jr-and-ja-morant-dillon-brooks-memphis-grizzlies-nba
  9. 3J showed that he is a real deal. More than that, after talking to 3J in summer league JV's impresion about young man skyrocketed. 3J was saying how he does not care one bit about his personal achievements and his stats and just wants to do what's best for the team to win and be as useful as possible for the team. If you think this is common among young guys or even so called stars, it is not. Selfishness for NBA "star" Kyrie, Westbrook, Chris Paul, Brawn, Tatum, Ingram,etc. or even worse a role player who sees himself as a star Terry Rozier, Whiteside,DeMarcus Cousins or Carmelo is a default setting. Even Demar Derozan. It's hard with Demar as he and Jonas are really good friends off the court, but there is no denying that he was the main obstacle for JV to achieving his best. The best examples how to be a star and a team player is Mike and Victor Oladipo. Credit to his family for mentality like that. Credit to Mike and Marc (somewhat) for mentoring him in his first season. 3J is going to have an awesome future and JV is more than happy to help and mentor (as much as 3J needs)to become the best he can be. I must admit i was a bit jealous about 3J's role on a team and how he can overshadow JV, but now seeing that this young man made of the good stuff i have nothing but love for him. Positive thing for the Grizz, because of 3J's character there is a very good chance he will stay in Memphis after his first 7 years and make Grizz play offs team for a decade or more. JV was impressed with Ja as well, did not spend as much time with him as with 3J, but young man was saying all the right things. We will see how good he is as a player and a teammate. His attitude is very good he obviously is awesome fasilitator and should be really good player. PG position is the hardest on a team and we should not expect miracles in a first year, but i hope we are pleasantly surprised in the second part of the season. There is always a chance he could be Markelle Fultz, but it is so small that i am feeling stupid to even thing about that possibility. Mike was JV's favorite Grizz after the trade and even Jonas understands why the trade happened it was hard for him to see him go.Ja has Ginormous shoes to fill. Andre Iguodala,Jae Crowder,Solomon Hill,Miles Plumlee,Ivan Rabb has no future in Memphis. Andre Iguodala,Jae Crowder are assets others could be marginal players or most likely not in the NBA next year. Tyus Jones is a descent backup i do not see him becoming a starter or a bust. Marko Guduric it will depend how he can translate his game into NBA, has more chance to be a bust than a starter, most likely solid on a lower end back up. Kyle Anderson could start this year, but he is not an NBA starter, solid back up on a higher end at the small forward. De'Anthony Melton is a good defender and probably has NBA future as a back up. Josh Jackson I know some of you expect a miracle , i do not. Josh is dictionary definition of a bust.I would be amazed if he could turned it around, but i expect this is his last season in the NBA. Grayson Allen 20% back up 5% starter 75% bust. Dillon Brooks, Bruno Caboclo and Brandon Clarke are the players with the future potential. Dillon Brooks will probably start next season as a Shooting guard. I expect he will be decent not spectacular place holder for the future pick. It is possible he will be a starter in the future, but i would not bet on it. Bruno Caboclo oh Bruno. The most frustrating player on a team. Unbelievable physical gifts and such a mental midget. It is possible he can mature enough, has time with sports psychologist and becomes a star. If i am Grizz FO, i would do everything i can to help him this season. If he can overcome his mental deficiencies he could be the one for the future. Chances are he won't, but as this season is free of any expectations, it is perfect opportunity to see if we could polish this Brazilian diamond or all we have is just a shiny piece of glass. Brandon Clarke is not going to be a bust. He is at least high end back up with really high sealing. Will be fun to watch him grow. p.s. After JV got traded to the Grizz, i couldn't care less about Memphis, Grizzlies past, present or the future. Now i do care not only about Jonas future, but Grizz too. Consider me converted Go Grizz
  10. I suppose it's all depends on Iggy, if he is happy to mentor and is positive in the locker room, by all means play him his 10 min off the bench, but from the leaks to the media from his team and desire to put pressure on Grizz FO to buy him out, there is a good chance that he is disruptive in the locker room in that case ice him.
  11. I think we have Houston offer in a pocket. I would put him on ice for 3 reasons. 1 Prevent injury 2 Retain his value (if he plays badly he will lose value) 3 Team chemistry (do not need anyone who don't want to be there)
