    Grizzlies acquire Tyler Dorsey for Mack

    Remember that he was getting more minutes because Atlanta was in a hot tanking race.

    Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley

    Seemed about equal to all the other lazy efforts during ASW. That whole competition was basically about who makes a 3 first.

    Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley

    There will be offers for Parsons before trade deadline. The FO will have to weigh the value of his cap space versus whatever crap they will have to take back plus young assets. If Wallace repeats the 3 year plan, he will let Parsons walk and use the cap space to pick up assets and draft picks. I wonder what the wizards plan will be.

    Grizzlies acquire Tyler Dorsey for Mack

    I thought both were expiring, but I'm not sure on Dorsey. If he's not, I'm not sure why grizzlies did deal unless they were so close to lux tax.
  5. Hawks lost to NY tonight. The Grizzlies are not going to catch the Hawks. Right now, they are like the Warriors with a 25 point lead midway through the 4th. They will pull their starters, but if the other team gets within 15 in enough time to win, they will pull the subs and the starters go back in until the cushion is comfortable enough again. If the Grizzlies would happen to get within 2 games, the Hawks will just go back into "Full bench development mode" (tanking) until the distance gets back to 3 or 4 games. It was no different then the Suns last year, the Grizzlies weren't going to catch them. The Suns would only win down the stretch if the Grizzlies won. Everygame this year needs to be a focus on auditioning these guys for next year. Find out who can play, and who is not worth bringing back.

    New depth chart speculation thread

    I think we can safely eliminate this option.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Chicago Bulls - 2/13/19

    Maybe he needs to watch some tape from when Hollins was coach. 1. Play the game - quit worrying about fouls. 2. D-Up 3. Get the ball to #13 (used to be #50). 4. Shoot when open

    Memphis signs Bruno Caboclo to a 10-day

    I say it really depends on what this guy is like in practice. If he's working hard and improving his game, than he has potential worth keeping and he's demonstrating that he's working towards it. High Strotential guys are worth keeping around a while (if working hard)

    IVAN RABB SHOULD START IN EVERY GAME

    Well, you certainly aren't a .....Rabb-id fan.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Chicago Bulls - 2/13/19

    This team looked ready to hit all star break. Hopefully they just look better to close out February.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Chicago Bulls - 2/13/19

    It might be good to sit Mike down for a while. He isn't looking good. Edit: Maybe I just needed to post that to help him make something.

    Memphis Grizzlies at Chicago Bulls - 2/13/19

    Grizzlies looking like a team that is playing on the 2nd night of a B2B after losing a close one

    Memphis signs Bruno Caboclo to a 10-day

    It's now his 5th year in the league. While it's true he could be a Hassan Whiteside type late bloomer, he also might be a Marshon. If he ends up being great, Memphis will have the first opportunity to negotiate, and when Wallace wants to keep a guy, they resign him (if cap allows).
  14. Parsons will either fall off the books and create cap space or be dealt to another team in return for bad contracts and a future 1st. He and Avery Bradley will be expirings next year for $38 million.

    Memphis signs Bruno Caboclo to a 10-day

    Looks like he will get the MarShon Brooks deal
  16. I think the future will be JV starting alongside JJJ, probably starting tomorrow. It will also help the 2nd unit to have Noah with Rabb. It will help greatly if MC11 can play tomorrow.
  17. At this timeout, they need to go over the play, "Get #13 the ball". He has 1 shot so far.
  18. I think it expires tomorrow. Not sure if he is good for the Bulls game or not.
  19. JV cleared but no Mike Conley.
  20. This is still going on:
  21. (Shift to tank thread predictions on page 2) After 20 games, the team sits 12-8. Playing .500 ball the remainder of the season gets them to 43-39. That is almost equal to the win % for 8th place right now. A- Does 43 wins get a team into the West in the playoffs? If not, how many wins will the 8th place team have? B- If the season ended today, these 8 teams would make the playoffs. A) Clippers, Warriors, Nuggets, Thunder, Blazers, Grizzlies, Lakers, Mavs are in. B ) Timberwolves, Pelicans, Kings, Spurs, Jazz, and Rockets are out but borderline. Suns are basically eliminated. Predict what team(s) not in the top 8, and who in the top 8 won't be there in the end? Basically, for each team you add from line B, remove a team from line A.
  22. 538 has the Grizzlies now finishing at 35-47 and tied with the HEAT and Wizards for the 6th-8th draft pick. Here is what is crazy about those predictions...a record of 37 wins is what is projected to get the Hornets into the playoffs. Magic and Mavs also projected at 37 wins, with the free falling Pelicans at 38 wins.
  23. I think 7-6 over 13. Some winnable games, but this team hasn't been able to successfully close out that well. There's a whole range of outcomes that would surprise me, but nothing between 3 to 11 wins would be a tremendous shock.
