  1. C’Mon guys, JJJ is not gonna be traded for Beal in a million years. Him and Ja are the cornerstones of the franchise (on and off court for identity and marketing purposes) and his playing and ballhandling at the bubble were mindblowing for a guy his size (small sample, I know, but still). He’s too young and showing progress, of course he has areas of improvement, but he’s working on them. Hell, he’s still growing! No wonder he has some injuries, it’s absolutely normal, his body is still adjusting. Now, trading for Beal without JJJ or Ja included would put us in a different dimension and is the only way I’d do it. And I bet the FO agrees with this.
  2. Yes, but we wouldn't have that cap space until next year, so it would kill any trading opportunity during this season. And sacrificing this just to keep Hezonja? I don't see it happening.
  3. If you cut him his contract will be off the books next year anyway, of course, but it's not like the Grizzlies will become a desirable destination for FAs overnight. If you trade him you can get something valuable in return. I don't see any scenario with Gorgui being cut before deadline.
  4. I see your point, but in order to keep Mario we need to cut some other player on the roster besides Guduric, so who is that player? You cannot cut an expiring like Dieng, that will become a valuable asset come deadline. I don’t think the FO would have offered a multi-year contract to Porter and Konchar if they were planning on letting them go. And that’s about all the options. If we don’t make trades before the start of the season, Hezonja is gone.
  5. That’s exactly it. Plus there will be injuries and important players should rest as much as possible, so there will be minutes for 3rd stringers.
  6. Well, I actually like this idea better than the 5 more RS games and then playoffs. Hell, I even think it’s not worse than going straight to the playoffs! It’s not very NBA-like, but it would mean at least 4 games in the FedEx Forum with playoff vibes and with better chances of fighting for the 2nd round than with the traditional playoffs.

    May Anthony Bennet be with you. At this point I see this FO unable to fail. We’re not worthy.

    Nobody knows that 100%, but even the 2000’s had three All Stars. If you get #1 you have more options than anybody to select a very solid player, and you always need solid players. Of couse we are talking fairy tales here. We’re not getting #1 and we should always play to win, but a #1 beats a sweep in first round.

    That’s the realistic question to ask. Bring the Lakers and send Boston the pick with a postcard signed “Love, Chris Wallace”.

    No brainer. As much as i’d like this new core to reach the playoffs in its first season, #1 pick beats been swept any day. Even in a weak draft.

    Good point there, and it’s not like we absorbed 3 years of bad contracts, it’s just one season, plus I think Dieng is going to be a serviceable player for us

    Bottomline is we got a potential core member in Winslow (if healthy the fit is insanely perfect with our guys) and a much needed backup C in Dieng, plus we put an end to the Iguodala situation. For that we gave away two important presences in the locker room and incredibly nice guys, but, although a part of it, none of them were a key part of our rotation, neither of our future, so it's a win there. One could argue we should get some pick from Miami and I wouldn't go against that one, as we gave away three expirings and got two bad longer contracts in return, But we also got the best player in the deal and it's not like we were to find the solution to our problems in this summer free agency (or maybe any summer for that matter), so I can live with the hit. The Bell trade is ok, the best part is the pick swap. All in all, adding Dillon's extension, I think this will be seen as a very good day at the office looking back a couple of years from now, and that's the best we have to expect from our FO.

    Dion Waiters appreciation thread

    One of the greatest Grizzlies of all time, he'll be missed 😂 I was actually intrigued about his on court fit after the trade, as we could definitely use a scorer off the bench. But I guess the off court issues outweighed his abilities...

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    Pat Riley thinks the same, that’s why Waiters is here
  15. Exactly my thought when I read the Capela to ATL rumor. The Hawks are looking for a C and I think they would be more than happy to give ET and Brooklyn's 1st, and even send Alex Len to Houston, for a young C like Capela, the guy is just 2 years older than Brandon Clarke and averages 14-14 and 2 blocks per game. In fact I don't really get why the Rockets want to get rid of him...
