    The Grizz have recalled Josh Jackson

    Two back-to-back excellent games against Sac and LAL. Keep it going Josh.
  2. Well, looks like Jaren is out for at least a couple of weeks. https://www.nba.com/grizzlies/news/jaren-jackson-jr-medical-update-200223

    Grizz Nation How We Feeling?

    Feeling awesome right now. The schedule is going to be rough going forward ... tough sledding after all-star break. I'm dumber than a bag of hammers because this team has blown my expectations away ... I predicted 24 wins for the year at start of season (I'll give myself a slight break because Jonas wasn't signed at the time ... but still). Ja is WAAAAY better than I thought and so is Brandon. Future is bright. Hope the guys can hang on for that playoff slot, but no matter what ... it's been fun!

    TH: Brandon Clarke ... stats showing he only had one block? I think he was robbed of a couple. HM: Ja, Jonas HHM: Dieng looked good ... and so did Josh Jackson. Jaren and Dillon were great defensively.
  6. Ding ding. We have a winner! +1
  7. Make it happen Bruno ... you can do it!

    Here's the take from The Ringer (https://www.theringer.com/nba/2020/2/6/21127528/nba-trade-deadline-grades) _________ Memphis Grizzlies In: Justise Winslow, Gorgui Dieng, Dion Waiters, Jordan Bell, 2023 second-round pick (via Houston), 2023 second-round pick Out: Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder, Solomon Hill, Bruno Caboclo You could have Bobby Portis … or you could have a future first-round pick and a 23-year-old playmaking forward with defensive chops. Memphis chose the latter, putting on a master class in how a team can use cap space to bolster a rebuilding process by acquiring and flipping Iguodala. (Take notes, New York.) It helps that Winslow fits with Memphis’s up-and-down style perfectly and will have a big chip on his shoulder—a requirement to earn the love of Grizzlies fans. It’s hard to see any real downside here for Memphis; Winslow has struggled to stay healthy, but there isn’t much risk in taking a chance on a talented player’s health at this stage in the rebuilding process. The Grizzlies won the deadline, and it wasn’t particularly close. Grade: A

    The Grizz have recalled Josh Jackson

    Josh has played well so far. I can see him getting 15-20 minutes a night for rest of season.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    Considering long term fit ... this could turn out to be AWESOME for the Grizzlies. Just get healthy Justise ... no rush, but looking forward to seeing you join our fun squad.
  11. Part of the trade is great (Iggy for Winslow) ... part of it is not great (losing Solo and Jae). Overall I don't love it and I don't hate it. So must be a fair trade for both sides. Long term, I'm hopeful we'll look back very fondly on this trade.

    Best of luck Jae. Thanks to you and Solo for being mentors to our young guys. Have fun in Miami!

    C C B. The Heat trade was a fair deal. I think Heat won the trade in short term and Grizzlies may have won huge in long term if Winslow gets healthy and meshes well ... really optimistic on the potential fit. Waiters is a wild card. The Houston trade is also a fair deal, but a bit of a head-scratcher to me. Bruno is athletic and the better shooter of the two, but the problem is his role/fit ... he is not going to get on the floor much backing up Jaren and Clarke. I would not be surprised at all if Bruno (finally) fully blossoms in Houston. Bell has a lot of physical tools, but offensively he's not going to scare anyone until he can catch-and-shoot ... hopefully he will be a better fit. The Minnesota trade looked good for the Grizzlies, mainly because even if healthy, Johnson would be stuck on bench behind Winslow, SloMo, Jaren, and Clarke too. Dieng gives us a good big that can backup Jonas ... so he just seems like a better fit.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    Hmmm. Well ... I love it less than a straight up Iggy for Winslow, but I don't hate it. Guess that's a pretty even trade.

    Justise Winslow to MEMPHIS

    That makes some sense to me. If that's the case, would Olynyk or Johnson give us a better chance to land a future pick in a trade? Just by age, I would guess Olynyk would be the better choice for Grizzlies.
