    Dwight to Memphis (sources say)

    He's as serviceable as a 3rd big as any other guy they would sign for a minimum deal, playing only when matchup and situations call for it. If Pranica started calling him Zeller or by the wrong Plumlee name, I doubt many would notice. Given his salary is fully guaranteed (unlike Rabb) and he's at a position of need (unlike Hill), I think he makes the 15 man roster.

    2019-20 Roster Predictions

    I find this a little unexpected as I would expect Rabb to be the odd man out, and if it was a different source, I would not pay much heed. But Marks is pretty plugged in:

    Tip Off Luncheon is Being Shelved

    Maybe it can be a virtual luncheon, and everyone can go to their favorite BBQ place in Memphis, and logon to this board and complain about other BBQ spots, Chris Wallace, andGrizzlies players, and who they would trade away for a future draft pick.

    Dwight to Memphis (sources say)

    I don't think he will back, although I would welcome him back. The team sits at the roster max of 20 guys, of those, 3 are pretty certain to be Hustle guys. I just don't think they want to pay for another guy. My guess at this point is that Hill and Rabb get waived.
  6. With free agency soon starting, here are list of free agents for discussion. Current Grizzlies free agents: Delon Wright (RFA), Tyler Dorsey (RFA), JV, Joakim Noah, Justin Holiday, Tyler Zeller (I believe Yuta is technically a RFA) Remaining free agents - please feel free to correct or update status (like various club or player options). Generally, I didn't list a guy if they didn't average 15 mpg or more (Unless they at one time were a discussion topic on this board or former Grizzlies player).

Former Grizzlies are italicized, but I'm not sure I got them all. Because of drug suspension, Tyreke Evans has been removed from list... And the NBA

    Dwight saves some money for the Grizz

    Rabb will have training camp to demonstrate if he gets his money is guaranteed for next year. I would think Hill is the next to go. Plumlee is third center usable (but I'd rather have Noah).

    Dwight to Memphis (sources say)

    I'm a little surprised they chose DH over Noah. There's no guarantee of better health for either one, but apparently LeBron would prefer Howard over Noah?

    Cousins injury

    Because there is no incentive for Plumlee or Hill to take a smaller buyout. Also, there would be salary set-off once/if Howard signs with the Lakers.

    Cousins injury

    In the Howard trade thread, I felt the best plan was to take him to training camp, let him compete for playing time, and cut him if he was an attitude problem. Many wanted to just cut him so as to not have him be a negative influence on the youngsters.

    Bests in Grizzlies History

    Most fun meaningless regular season game featuring Tony and none of the regular characters. During Dave's last year with the team limping backwards into the playoffs, Tony Allen, JaM, Lance Stephenson, Vince Carter, Mario Chalmers and 3 other guys* go into Cleveland and took down the future NBA champ Cleveland Cavaliers. It was the last hurrah of a team that you knew, even if they made the playoffs, was doomed to a quick and ugly exit, which happened as everyone that year seemed to get injured. But for 1 night, it was all heart. *Hollins, Martin, and PJ Hairston Edited to add: After playing over 40 minutes that night, Chalmers would blow achilles in the next game vs Boston.

    Grizzlies/NBA Free Agency Thread

    I like Joakim Noah, and I"m glad he played here this year. I don't expect him to return, but I like what he had to say to Devin Booker when Booker was complaining about getting a double team I'm trying to see who else is there: Ben Simmons...and I can't tell
  13. Grizzled Vet

    Cousins injury

    He's an asset that the team has been shopping around probably since the trade. Teams either don't want him or don't/can't trade for him. I don't believe the Lakers can even trade for him. Grizzlies have to waive 2-3 more guys. It is cheaper for them to waive Howard than either Hill or Plumlee. And one or both of them might be gone anyways.
  14. For the regular season, I'm curious what teams you would pick first as far as wanting to see play in the FEF. In other words, if you shared season tickets with a few other people, and you had to draft the teams to watch, which games would you pick first. (For sake of argument, night of week/holiday is not an issue AND assume that the WC teams only visit here once). Also, I don't think the team has released the info, but from scouring some other teams schedules and from other places, here is what I see: 10/6 Maccabi Haifa 10/8 NZ Breakers (RJ Hamptons New Zealand team) @ FEF 10/14 Hornets @ FEF 10/16 @ OKC Thunder 10/18 @ SA Spurs Also, Mike Conley's Utah Jazz will play in Memphis on Nov. 15, per The Athletic. He should still be healthy, I guess.

    Cousins injury

    Honestly, I don't see how the Lakers have anything they can do to match up salaries. Even the guys they just signed can't be traded until December. Even if they wanted to trade Cousins so the Grizzlies could waive a smaller contract they couldn't do it. I would guess that the Grizzlies will still waive Howard, but I don't understand why the Lakers wanted to meet with him. Maybe the Lakers are trying to figure whether to wait on him or sign a Zeller or Noah. Maybe meeting with Howard will get a smaller buyout number? That doesn't really make sense either.
  16. So with a younger team and Ja Morant, are fans more interested in going to pre-season games or not really? I've gone to a few in the past because their good to take the kids to because you can leave at half, but I'm not sure about going down this year for any of them.
  17. Grizzled Vet

    Cousins injury

    I would sign Joakim Noah before trading for Howard if I was a team in playoff race. Maybe Noah has no interest in playing this year, or at least not with LeBron. Or maybe vice versa.

    Going to Breakers Grizz game!

    Some tickets are available now on ticketmaster resale. Just be aware that some, but not all, are above face value.
  19. Would using a pen or pencil count as a way to rewind? Also, flip cassette over and FF?
  20. So Grizzlies are going with a Fast Forward & Throwback theme this year. So this is all right
  21. (Humble brag alert...someone's traveling) Here's your date December 9 at Golden State 11 at Phoenix March 6 at Dallas 7 vs. Atlanta 10 vs. Orlando 12 at Portland
  22. Solid job by the Memphis Grizzlies to link to their schedule, only to have it land on a dead page. Keep playing things close to the vest guys.
  23. As mentioned earlier, Conley returns 11/15 on an ESPN game and then again 11/29. The team plays there 12/7 and 3/14. Gasol doesn't come until 3/28, and then the teams turn around and play again in Toronto on 3/30. WC teams that visit only once: Clippers & Blazers, I think. Link to home schedule:
  24. Thanks NBA, for putting 10 home games in November, when not a ton of people are tuned into the NBA, and giving the team only 4 home games in February.

    Throwback Vancouver Uniforms

    The Titans did wear the Oilers throwbacks in the past, and a whole lot of people in Houston were not fans. I think the Texans should be able to wear the uniform. I understand the Bud Adams move, etc, and I'm not sure what is the best rule for it.
