    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    Definitely not a fan of purposefully tanking but also not a fan of overpaying mid level guys to get the 12th pick every season (i.e. Charlotte) A three year slump is doable and has proven to work. OKC had a three year rebuild and ended up with KD, Westbrook, and Harden. Not saying we'll end up with three hall of famers... but it's been proven to work if the cards fall your way.Ja needs a year to grow anyways. Again, I don't think we should purposefully lose any games this year because the lottery can't be counted on but this team sucks right now and I don't think we should ruin our young assets with short term fixes (New Orleans)

    This team has a better chance of getting a top 6 pick than making the playoffs. Which would be the best thing for the franchise in my opinion.

    Resign JV, Delon, Noah. Don't reach for anyone. This isn't the offseason for that.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    A few thoughts... 1) Steven Adams is definitely a better player than Jonas 2) Jonas is still really good and is a good fit for our team 3) We need a fantastic rebounder next to JJJ

    Roster Moves

    As long as Kyle is the 7th or 8th man I like him. He's too much of a liability on offense to be anything more. And honestly he's a little overrated on defense by some of the posters here. I think Kyle would thrive as the facilitator of the 2nd unit. A backup PG with a score first mentality would be a great fit with him.
  6. Fantastic pick. A scorer would have been nice but we can't build our entire roster with one draft. I see Clarke as a high energy, high IQ, dirty work, whatever it takes to win type of guy. Not necessarily even as a starter. Picks in the 20's are guys that you just want to play meaningful minutes. Half of them won't even be in the league in 5 years. I think we got a pretty safe pick after already drafting a franchise cornerstone in Ja.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    I don't think he'll be asked to create anything on offense. He'll crash the boards hard, play P&R with Ja, and be a swiss army knife on defense. The guy plays at 100 MPH with high basketball IQ. Hopefully he can gain 15 lbs without losing any athleticism..

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Brandon Clarke murdered all advanced statistics last season PER - 37.2 Box Plus/Minus - 18.9 Offensive Rating - 137 Defensive Rating - 84 Win Shares - 8.8 Those are all insane numbers. The guy can just play basketball. Not to mention he averaged 4.4 combined blocks and steals at only 28 MPG. Fantastic pick at 21.

    Minny is not giving up Culver. They traded up to get him. It makes no sense.

    Roster Moves

    We're about to go one of two directions: 1) Commit to trying to get a top 6 pick next year and use our TPE to take unwanted contracts of bad players (Baynes, Snell, Roberson, etc.) 2) Commit to conveying and use our TPE to build pieces that will actually help us (Adams, Capela, Whiteside) OKC has to do something. If they shed all of their cap holds they'll still be ~$15mil over the luxury tax so they have to trade Adams or Schroeder+Roberson

    Crowder is a 3 and D guy who has shot 33% or worse from 3 in six of his seven seasons

    FA Targets

    Adams isn't even a bad contract. Their payroll is just massive. He's only 25 and one of the best centers in the league.

    FA Targets

    Now that I think about it more.. I would be all for Steven Adams. If we're being honest, we're not signing a top FA to a max contract next season. They aren't coming to Memphis. And if we do it's because we overpaid. So we have to sign mid level guys after the top guys go and hope they pan out. But there aren't many top FAs next offseason so history tells us we need to find players via draft and trades. Adams would be a great fit with JJJ because he does all of the dirty work and a great fit with JA because he's been playing with Westbrook for 6 years.
