    The Grizzlies should trade for John Wall

    Lol...this thread gets moved but Seattle getting a NHL franchise remains.

    Might have to revise my pick of us losing to Denver with Millsap hurt. Might be a 7 game Noah powered win streak coming.

    I remember people showing me this video to say ZBo sucked... Then they also said Brandon Roy said we can't win with that dude. I have heard it all. Talent won out in the end.

    We traded for ZBo in 2009...He made $16 million. The salary cap was $57.7 million (28%) Wall will make $38.15 million. The Cap will be $109 million. (35%) Not that big of difference especially considering $25 million of that would be dead Parsons money in year 2.

    All this reminds of the talk about getting ZBo... The crowd was wrong then and is wrong now.

    When has Wall been this dude nobody was able to deal with? I don't even get this narrative. This is like getting a 4 year old Porsche for a $1,000 and complaining because it has some dents. You are giving up Parsons and at most a nothing 1st and some peripheral talent. What are we talking about here?

    Still wrong.

    You smoking? Selby and Wroten are still young and still suck. Bayless has a very good career.

    Did you guys learn nothing from ZBo? When he is locked in, Wall is great on both sides of the ball.

    John Wall is two years older than Tim Hardaway. The NBA is not a fit league. The NBA is about top shelf talent. Usually it would cost you a mint to get a 28 year old with the resume of John Wall. To me this is a no brainer. John Wall is an All NBA talent. The added bonus is he has made the All Defense team which fits this group. Unlike Hardaway, he extends Mike Conley's career by taking him off the ball more. I would consider adding a protected first to get him. I think adding him would be the equivalent of Detroit adding Rasheed Wallace. It would take us from a good defensive team to an All Time great level defensive team. Plus we would have two closers.

    Would you rather go after a player who has done nothing in the NBA to contribute to winning or a 5x All Star?

    No you wouldn't. The cap and luxury tax threshold will go up. Will be about like having Chandler on the team except Wall will be playing.
  13. Both I have grown to love...
  14. I know, I know. However, you have to get over the initial sticker shock. His contract is gigantic. It is Chandler Parson almost x 2. The difference is John Wall is an established All Star. Now I am not saying this is the perfect scenario. Or even ideal. However, I think he could be a nice fit. Lets do the cons first: 1. The contract is large and extension does not kick in until next season. 2. The chemistry. The Wizards have been toxic for two seasons and he has been a part of the toxicity. 3. Low energy play the last two seasons. The pros: 1. 28 year old 5 time All Star, 1 x All NBA, 1 x All defensive team. 2. Size makes it less likely for him to break down. 3. Has been relatively healthy before last season. 4. Fit. Can play next to Mike Conley. Can defend shooting guards. Will lengthen Conley's career. Gives us a dynamic shot creator. 5. Puts the Grizz squarely on the top of the non-Warriors tier of the West 6. John Wall is currently averaging 21/8/3 in a disappointing season. Now I recognize that 5 additional years of mega-money is scary, especially for a small market team. Wall could be Chandler Parson useful the last two years of the deal at 34. The deal I propose is: Chandler Parsons/Ivan Rabb/Wayne Seldon/Marshon Brooks/2020 2nd round pick/2022 2nd round pick for John Wall/Markief Morris. With maybe one or two of our guys going to other teams so Washington can save on the luxury tax. So I am not proposing any 1st rounders or any of our top young guys going. Our rotation after the trade: PG Mike Conley, Shelvin Mack, Jevon Carter SG John Wall, Garrett Temple SF Kyle Anderson, Dillon Brooks PF Jaren Jackson, JaMychal Green C Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah To me this is a team that can not only make the Western Conference Finals but also get a game or two vs. the Warriors. Plus the added benefit is that if KD leaves this offseason, we could possibly be a favorite in the West next season with Jaren's development. I know it is not ideal. I know there will be pain in the end but for a chance to make the WCFs and win the Southwest division, I think it could be worth the pain. I mean we have to be honest. John Wall could possibly be our best player if he has that Pau Gasol in LA rejuvenation to his game. Could be a ZBoish acquisition.
