    Memphis Grizzlies and NBA Roster Moves

    There’s not an open roster spot. Williams didn’t have a spot on the roster: Ja, Bane, Dillon, JJJ, Adams, Tyus, Ziaire, Konchar, BC, Tillman, Santi, Tillman, LaRavia, Roddy, Chandler. That’s 15. Then there’s Green. So we still have to get rid of one person which is assumed to be Green. If there’s a FA out there we really want to sign, we will have to get rid of one additional player. Speaking of our two-ways, there’s probably never been as much excitement to see what they can do.

    Memphis Grizzlies vs Philadelphia 76ers - 7/5/22

    Yeah, that is strange. Aluma spent 5 years in college due to sitting out a year after transferring from Wofford to VaTech.

    I mean sure, if averaging 2.7 ppg on 18.8% shooting in a total of 3 games during their post season run is helping, then I guess you’re correct. I’d define it more that the Bucks won a championship despite DiVincenzo’s attempted help.

    Good lord. I never imagined I’d see so many hardons for Dante DiVincenzo. A guard that shot 35% from 2. We don’t need that. He’s not going to help anyone win a championship.

    Stay the course. Keep with what we’re building. We don’t need no savior coming in to help us. Kyrie, KD, and Harden were supposed to make the Nets invincible. Nothing further from the truth.

    When will JJJ return to the court?

    Me too. Christmas Day game vs Warriors.

    Offseason Moves and Plans

    I think the only shot he took all season beyond 5 ft was a 3/4 court shot at the buzzer to end a quarter.

    Not necessarily. We would have to waive one player besides Green.

    JJJ Stress fracture

    Relax. Remember when Santi had that under the rim dunk? He probably had a few rebounds and a block or two also. We’re good!

    Hey, remember that time we were playing the Nets, and we were killing them? Then they bench KD & Harden and put in their scrubs. The scrubs came back on us and made it a close game. Thars all, just seeing if anyone remembers.

    Spurs must be wanting to go all in on the Wembanyama sweepstakes Well, that's mighty nice of James. What a team player!

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    We signed Tillie to a 2-year deal last season. A little bit different as he was a two-way guy, so you jump at a chance to get two years guaranteed and a salary bump. That hitch in his shot will turn a lot of teams off. It got a lot worse from 20/21 to 21/22. I agree he still has value, but when looking at FA's, teams can focus too much on the negatives.

    Grizzlies sign Kenneth Lofton Jr. on Two-Way Deal

    He looks like a really smart player. Has confidence and knows how to use/position his body, and outmaneuver his defenders.

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    Could be. Just doesn't seem like it'd be an issue to trade him if we only wanted him for 2 years.

    I don't know all the ins and outs of free agency. How would extending a QO allow them to get something back? Are you speaking of a sign & trade deal if he accepted the QO from Orlando? I guess Weltman just wanted to screw a lot of people over on their bets to who would be picked first.

    It doesn't look like were going to be outbid to keep Tyus, so I think we re-sign him unless there's someone else that we can sign that will be an upgrade over him. It won't be a true PG, so that will depend on if we want to go with not running with a true PG when Ja is out. We did do that some last season with Kyle, Bane, and Melton bringing the ball up when neither Ja or Tyus were on the court. Two of those will be gone, but honestly, Melton was terrible at it.

    He did make All NBA 2nd team, but it doesn't count this year, he would have to make it again next year to qualify for Supermax. Magic currently have 8 guys that are 6'10" or taller. Added Banchero in the draft, plus Jonathan Isaac should be back. They don't have room for all of them. They also have Bol Bol, so who knows what will happen with that guy.

    DeAnthony Melton Appreciation Thread

    Makes sense. Benefits both parties. FO probably just said if you don't agree to this, we are just going to waive you, as there's not enough time to work out a potential trade. This gives the FO more time for a possible trade to where he could get the other $3 million guaranteed.

    Jake LaRavia

    His tweeker eyes is just a running joke in game threads when he plays against us. He just has those eyes, nobody actually claims he does drugs. Also, going to a religious school doesn't preclude someone from being a druggie. Didn't know he was a big football player in HS too.

    Jake LaRavia

    He doesn't have the tweeker eyes like Matthews

    I agree. There's always a trade available. Some team will be happy to take him. Players will get hurt and someone will need him. At worst, we should be able to get a late 1st round and some bum on an expiring contract for him in a couple years. Also agree on Bane. At most, a deal like Jaren's. Not a max deal like for Ja. Most of these contracts are paying players for what they've already done, and not what they're going to do in the future. Honestly, guys like Lebron, AD, Kyrie, Harden, Simmons, and Westbrook aren't worth $35-$47 million a year.

    I don't feel bad for him at all. He will be making $10+ million a year to play a game. I'd trade with him in a minute if I could.
