    Woj: Mike Conley traded to Utah

    The best part of the deal is the future 1st round pick that won't convey until 2022

    Ja Morant

    The key has to be to get the most out of Conley. I'd like to make the playoffs next year too, but we need to build around our new core of Morant and JJJ. Without a 1st rounder next year we need some young assets and Conley is our best shot at that. Most likely means you trade him this offseason

    Mike Alex Conley Jr. Will Be Traded to Utah

    I think the Celtics make a lot of sense as a landing spot for Mike. Kyrie looks to be on his way out, and that team needs some leadership. They also have 2 lottery picks this year and obviously our 1st rounder next year. The pieces are there and it looks like a good fit for everyone.
  4. What? Mike and Marc are gonna carry the offensive load. Also think people overrate speed in the nba like it’s the nfl. Harden isn’t fast and he’s one of the best scorers in the league. Sure we’re not going to be a top 10 offense by any means but on paper we’re definitely a top 10 defense. I also hate the Dillon Brooks isn’t a good athlete argument. What makes him unathletic, his assumed 40 time? Watching him play he has great hops and is one of the stronger players on the court for his position
  5. Really hope the reports are true and the Spurs don’t match. This team is desperate for legit NBA talent on the wing and if we can get a young, proven player for 4 years I’m all for it. With no 1st rounder next year this would be a great signing

    The 2018 Free Agents

    Could definitely see us winding up with Rodney Hood. Not saying I want him but his stock is very low right now but the risk could pay off

    Welcome to Memphis JJJ!!!!

    A lot of the negative on Jackson is how long it will take for him to develop. I agree his offensive game will take some time but defensively he might already be the best on the team. I see a lot of Draymond in JJJ’s game. He can guard anyone on the court at times and has a freakish body. Just need to hope he puts on some muscle to overpower guys downlow.
  8. Why do you think Carter is unathletic?
  9. But they don’t because he’s a consensus top 5 prospect?
  10. Wallace has been known to covet guys who were top players in high school. OJ, selby, Xavier Henry, and Rabb. His post lottery speech could’ve just been smoke but he said at 4 we’re still at the Tier 1 of players so I’m assuming he views MPJ in that group with Ayton, doncic, and bagley. If everyone hypothetically panned out Porter should be our guy because a top athletic wing scorer has been our biggest need for years. However, if Bagley is there I also don’t see us passing on him. He’s the most nba ready and the front office has made it known we’re all in on making the playoffs again after 1 bad season. I don’t know what’s going to happen on draft night but I think I would be excited with just about any player we take barring a trade out of the top 8.

    I Think Baldwin Is Starting To Come On

    Baldwin has a lot of TA in his game if he would commit to it. He is a great athlete with long arms who could be a great wing defender and on offense he would be more of a slasher. He doesn't need to run the point but he can handle the ball too

    Roster Moves

    I don't think the Grizzlies have ever had this much talent from top to bottom. We have 15 actual NBA talent guys who can play good basketball when their name is called. We went from being an old team who was on the verge of needing to blow up their roster for youth, to a team with a lot of young talent. Our players 25 and under: Baldwin, Harrison, Daniels, Deyonta Davis, Harrison, Martin, and Troy Williams. Every single one of these guys have had great games showing their potential. That's not to say any of these guys end up being a star, but having 7 solid rotational players early in their careers is huge. We have the star power when healthy with Mike, Marc, and Parsons. We have veteran bench leaders Zbo and Vince. Tony Allen continues to prove he can be a difference maker in games for this team. And then you have two 26 year olds with talent in Ennis and Jamychal. This team is loaded with talent more than ever. It sucks Mike and company are hurt, but this has been some great development time for a young players. This team is going to continue to get better and the next few years should be fun to watch at the very least.

    Who Will Survive To Opening Day?

    I don't understand why people even talk about Selden. There's a reason he didn't get drafted the guy is trash. Just a camp body

    Jarell Martin

    He averaged almost 20 points a game his rookie year. OJ could've been an all star if he would have been as dedicated as you need to be.
  15. Yes he can shoot threes and handle the ball
