    Chandler Parsons - Note to Memphis

    If a player retires voluntarily, his entire salary remains in the books. The only way to get salary removed is the one I cited. Not to mention that by asking Parsons to play in the Hustle the FO was explicitly stating he was fit to play. Again, you’re ignoring the fact that in order to claim the salary exemption the team has to first waive the player. If that’s what the team wanted they should have waived Parsons right there and then. Of course then it would only take a team picking him up from waivers to screw the plan. I have no love for Chandler Parsons but this was in no way his fault.

    ESPN Love? No, Zion will win ROY

    Copied straight from Marc Stein’s newsletter. Stein is more representative of what actual sportswriters think than a sensationalist hack like Skip Bayless whose entire shtick consists in stating the most outrageous opinions on sports TV (a fresh out of injury rookie playing like prime MJ or Kobe? surely not hyperbolic at all).

    Chandler Parsons - Note to Memphis

    I'm afraid you don't understand how the injury retirement salary exclusion works. In order to remove the salary of a player from a team's cap due to a career-ending injury, the team must waive him and then apply to the NBA for a salary exclusion, after a minimum period of 1 year since his last regular season game. Then the decision to approve or reject the request is made by a team of physicians selected by the league and the Players Association. Nowhere does the player play a role in that process.

    Good 1st despite the slow start.

    Slomo gets the foul and an extra possession to end the Q

    Kanter with the defensive prowess of a traffic cone.

    Definitely better to use the other team’s TOs 😬

    JJJ setting the energy level. Good to see. I liked that we went to JV early, unfortunately without good results, but I think he could get Theis in foul trouble if he keeps taking him to task in the low post.

    Sluggish out of the gate. Probably worth using a TO soon.

    Memphis Hustle/G-League thread

    Guduric is at the same pay level as Grayson Allen, so if he's a mistake (still plenty of time in his contract for him to improve) it's not exactly a costly mistake. As for Josh Jackson, he was part of the price to obtain Melton and hardly part of the franchise's plans, so how is he a mistake?
  14. * For some definitions of "the board"
  15. Powell’s injury is particularly bad as a big guy whose game is so reliant on athleticism. I’m sure he’ll come back from this but he may need to change his game significantly.

    They probably had an agreement in place prior to all those trades.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    When you say it in the context of "the board" who am I supposed to think you're referring to?

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    Why do you keep saying "the board" and "y'all" as if everyone had the same opinion about Dillon?
  19. Wait. The day he scored 31 while shooting 48% from the field and 50% from three, with 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 1 TO was some of his worst? What exactly is the expectation here?
  20. Ugh. Hopefully they’ll be all out of funk after this game.
  21. Jae and Solo have launched 11 of our 23 threes. They’re 1 for 11. How. How does the coach not act on that.
  22. I swear Jrue could bounce the ball off his own butt and it would go through the hoop.
