  1. I am conflicted. I think the top of the 2019 draft is actually BETTER than the 2018. Especially in terms of player types I want to put with Jaren Jackson. RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson, Nassir Little, Cam Reddish, Romeo Langford, Sekou Doumbouya, Rui Hachimura and Quentin Grimes would all be good fits with JJJ. So that is 8 players I would want at this point over any perimeter player in this past draft outside of maybe Doncic or Young. We will see though. Lots of things can change during the college season...

    Preseason schedule announced

    In 2018, it is a shame this is even a question.

    Grizzlies opponents - 2018 Free agents and trades

    Looks like we have a good candidate for a future Parson’s trade in Kevin Love.

    Jarrell Martin to Orlando

    Basically... The Core 4 was nice but likely wins a title if they don't mess up the Thabeet draft. In the grand scheme of things, we are still a organization with that has never won its division and has made one WCF appearance in its 23 year history. This is why I wholeheartedly believe in the Blueprint... Regardless of how we feel about competing this year, we should really be hoping that Conley and Gasol can rehab their trade value so we can get as many shots at a 2nd superstar (I will assume JJJ is headed there for now) so that we can repeat this last playoff run but up it another level from playoff contention every year to finals contention every year.

    9-10 man rotation

    Until I see Mike, Marc and JJJ on the court together and playing well, I am sticking with 38ish wins.

    Jarrell Martin to Orlando

    It starts with the draft: Spurs - Duncan/Kawhi Mavs - Dirk Heat - D Wade Warriors - Steph Cavs - Kyrie Lakers - Kobe Celtics - Pierce First step is the draft...hopefully JJJ is that step.

    Jarrell Martin to Orlando

    I disagree. The entire history of the league proves that wishing on a superstar with the lottery is the #1 path to sustained title contention.

    Grizz to sign Shelvin Mack?

    Harrison is secure. Not even sure what y’all are debating.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    you know how I know everyone is full of it. If the trade would have been Jevon Carter instead of a second rounder, everyone would have been on here killing the trade. However, the that is what the trade is essentially.

    Grizz trading Mclemore & DD for Garrett Temple

    I don't like this trade at all. It is very similar to the Jeff Green trade. I am hoping we are a top lottery team in 2021, unless something unforseen happens in the talent acquisition game before then. So a 31-36 pick in what could be a draft deeper than 2018 will be a high cost to get off of players you could have cut and signed David Nwaba.

    So good to hear from a long time board member about Jackson. It really feels good that he could shape the course of the franchise for the next 10-15 seasons.

    Yep, i would have him watch those 4. I think he can a little from all and they are all champions.

    No we just recognize development doesn’t mean they should be dropped after two seasons after showing a lot of improvement.

    There are 10-15 bigs in the summer league (maybe more) that are having better showings than DD. This does not even include theveteran backup big options.
