Hello, i think JV is even better player atm than Marc. He is still young and improving. Marc is in his sunset of nba carrier, for J-Val still remains 8 years of productivity, later we will see. Memphis has a monster deal here to get Valanciunas, and of course bad for Raptors. +Delon. and CJ. CJ also sunset player, delon can be good role player. J-Val i think will be all-star in nearest future. If he will be in memphis next year i predict he's stats as : 19.5 - 21PPG , 10,2RB, 2,3 ASIST, 1,35 BLK . and it could be fair enought for all-star.
J-Val is a team player, he isn't gold digger, so i think he could take that 17million and in another year make 5-4 years deal with grizzlies. (why - cause his mentalitet isn't for hunt a title, but for do what he can for a team) And that would be a great deal for grizzlies, not like parsons.. J-val in starting, Noah at backup. But remember that noahs best years are also gone. Noah could be productive max 1-2 years. atm i think grizzlies need good SF, or to deal conley for PG and SF. And to keep Val for sure.
J-Val was very underated in Toronto, when Marc came to toronto ant Val to memphis, we clearly see how both of them plays, think Toronto now ungry on Gm to get Marc for Val. Bad for them, future for grizzlies
