    Why the trade with Miami is a bad trade.

    I give all of these moves an A. Maybe I'm being naive, but looking at the moves the FO has made so far, I'm trusting their judgement. They were very forward thinking moves and this rebuild has progressed at an exponential pace.

    The Waiters contract was the cost of doing business. These expirings had to be moved in order to get some kind of value for them. His contract also serves as filler to meet the salary cap floor for next year with a very weak FA class. I understand wanting to preserve the cap space but it seems the FO has identified the core and prefers the 21 FA period.

    The Ringer, Bleacher Report (I know..) and si.com (I know, I know..) to name a few.

    Looking at different sites for trade grades, the consensus is that the Grizzlies get an A for their deadline deals.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    No one. Bruno was traded for Bell.

    Three-team trade involving the Grizzlies?

    Second year of Iggy's extension is a team option.
  7. BC is doubtful for this game.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    According to sources, the salary cap may be dropping next year... https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/28596920/sources-nba-set-release-revised-2020-21-salary-luxury-tax-projections
  9. Griz looking a little flat so far.

    ūü§£ @ everyone advocating for DH to stay with the Griz. He couldn't even get a guaranteed contract with a veteran team because they were worried about him being a distraction.

    I reminder when Melo was good too... I don't think the FO considers Howard a fit from a chemistry perspective. He just isn't considered a commodity by the league anymore. I think the FO recognizes this as well. As others have stated, he'll be trade filler or cut.

    I don't see a contender trading for him at any point.

    2020 NBA Draft

    A player to keep an eye on is Patrick Williams. He fits the profile of a wing with size (6'7, 6'8) and shooting potential. He'll be a freshman at Florida State. Depending on how well he does this year, I can see a scenario where he ranks highly on draft boards by the end of the season. Whether it's as high as top 6 remains to be seen.
