    Grizz sign John Konchar

    Those of you impressed with highlight films will be impressed. Just like Ja ... he never misses a shot!

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Well ... I'm not sure if we win much for a while (at least until these young guys build some chemistry with each other and earn some respect from officials), but we should make some ESPN highlights. Expect to see lots of dunks.

    thanks mike, wow

    Go get that championship Mike. You deserve the opportunity. Thanks for being a classy guy.
  4. I'd rather trade it for a 2020 (or beyond) first-round pick. At this point, we need to be very very patient.

    Odds for win total for 2019 to 2020

    Too early ... let's wait until end of July, shall we? As it sits (with JV uncertainty and draft-day deals unknown), we're probably looking at low 20s. I would definitely bet the under right now.
  6. Not a fan of this trade ... yet. Unless something unexpected happens, next year is going to be really tough (if you like wins). If we crack top 25 in league rankings at any point next year I'll be pleasantly surprised. But you can't grade this trade yet ... time will tell. The best thing we get from this is cap-space relief.

    Mike Alex Conley Jr. Will Be Traded to Utah

    Well, the Lakers are out. They don't have anything left to offer after AD signing. I wonder if a Knicks deal might start making sense. They have so much cap space this year & they were hoping to spend it on Kevin Durant and Kyrie ... but KD's injury may muddy the water for Kyrie. Their other option after Kyrie was Kemba, but Kemba seems to be leaning towards staying in Charlotte. So maybe Mike? The Knicks are still paying most of Noah's contract ... would we take over that contract to help make a deal work?
  8. Yes. If I were king, it would be so ordered. But alas ... sigh.
  9. If he's a good developmental coach ... he's fine. If we're going with Ja and trading Conley, we'll be in full-blown rebuild mode for a while and won't be in the playoffs anyway. Get ready for some lean times until the young guys build some chemistry and earn their stripes.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    Draft Ja. Trade Mike with eye on youth. Let JV and Delon walk. Take our lumps next year & hope we are bad enough for top 6 pick. Next summer, Parsons, Mike, and JV are all off the books & we can hope to attract some good free agents next summer. Is that "the plan"?

    Lonzo & 4 = RJ Barrett?

    Count me in ... but I don't think that trade would fly as described (probably would have to take on some more players to make the salaries closer). I would take RJ at #2. Culver or Reddish would be good ... but I would prefer Hunter at #4. On the down-side, it would probably mean JV signs somewhere else.

    Mike Alex Conley Jr. Will Be Traded to Utah

    I mostly agree with this & it would result in more wins short-term. Let's face it, the Grizzlies are not a team currently built for speed (excluding a few players ... most importantly JJJ). So keeping JV is fine with me ... Ja will need to learn to play a half-court type game anyway if we ever get back in the playoffs. It just depends on what kind of offers we get for Mike this summer. I think Mike's contract will make it difficult for us to find a decent trade for him before the draft. There could be an opportunity with the big-market teams (Knicks, Lakers, Clippers, Nets) that miss out on Kyrie.

    Mike Alex Conley Jr. Will Be Traded to Utah

    I hope the team would trade Mike to a contender in the East if possible ... he would start for the Bucks and the Celtics (if Kyrie is gone). Not sure what those teams could offer in terms of future picks & contracts to make the salaries work.

    Is Ja Morant Worthy of a #2 pick?

    No. Steph was a different story. He was dominant for all three years at Davidson, torching major colleges many times all three seasons. He was not an unknown coming into his final year.

    Is Ja Morant Worthy of a #2 pick?

    Maybe it's just me ... but if the #1 recruit in the country (RJ) choose to play for Murray State, what would he have done against mid-major competition? Probably 30 ppg easy. And if Ja had walked-on at Duke after his freshman year at Murray, would he had made the team? Funny how one year can influence opinions. Not one person here would have expected anyone from any mid-major college to be a first round pick in this year's draft ... much less a top 3 pick. Yeah, I'm nervous we're drafting "potential" over "proven".
