    2019 NBA DRAFT

    21. Memphis Grizzlies - Brandon Clarke, F, Gonzaga Grade: A+ What a brilliant trade for Memphis to acquire this pick from the Thunder and snag one of the very best talents in the draft. Clarke was college basketball’s second most effective player this year behind only Zion Williamson, establishing himself as a hyper-athletic forward who wrecks havoc on defense and finishes efficiently on offense. He’s limited as a shooter and lacks the length and bulk to play center, but his combination of explosiveness and smarts makes him an incredible value in this range. Clarke is also a perfect complement to Jaren Jackson Jr. in the front court. While Jackson offers shooting and space, Clarke will be a monster on the glass, in transition, and as a weak side shot blocker. He’ll also thrive running with Ja Morant in the open court and catching alley-oops near the rim. Despite the fact that he’ll be a 23-year-old rookie, Clarke is the best pick of the draft after Williamson. https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2019/6/20/18693450/nba-draft-grades-2019-first-round-zion-williamson-trades-pelicans-ja-morant

    Thank y’all for confirming my love for Hachi. They’re mocking this guy in the late lottery or mid first - how? If we can’t get our pick back from Boston in a Conley deal, I hope we can find a way to come out of this draft with Rui or Reddish.

    slim may be the only class act left on the entire internet. Sorry for your loss man.

    The Boston deal. Getting our pick back puts us in the absolute perfect rebuild situation and allows it to happen organically.

    Even I know you have to draft Ja

    Yes if you combined both drafts (knowing what we know today about last year's group), it would be Zion #1 and Luka/JJJ/Ja in tier 2.

    I'm cool with Reddish if we are able to move Conley for a mid lottery pick. The next couple of years need to be all about finding that third wing star to pair with JJJJ. Reddish has Paul George talent if he puts it all together. It's unlikely that he has it mentally to be that, but these are the kind of high risk/reward moves we need to be making. We have two max guys who will be well worth that money. Our third max guy has to be worth it too. We can't be in a position of having to blow the last big chunk of our cap space on an Otto Porter type. It's gotta be a legit star. So if it comes down to taking someone like DeAndre Hunter who will likely be a very high quality long term starter with low bust potential but never a star or Reddish who could be an all star but also could be a massive flop, I'm taking the chance on star power. I'd take having nothing over having to pay Otto Porter $26M a year.

    Grizz Moved Up!!!!

    Now, how am I getting my pick back from Boston?

    Zion and JJJ just felt like an awkward fit. Ja and JJJ, man that's the kind of match made in heaven guard/big pairing you dream about starting your team with.

    2019 NBA DRAFT

    All those years we spent trying and failing to get an perennial all star, and then we fall into two of them in consecutive seasons. There was always some distant hope in my mind that the tides would change for us, but truly, I did not expect the post grit-grind era to lay itself on a silver platter like this. Legitimately stunned not only that we have a future, but that it is brighter than ever.
  12. I hope this new front office is smart and creative with massive amount of expiring money we have to play with this summer.

    I've kind of started looking into him, can kind of see a little Tatum there? What are you thoughts on him?

    Memphis Hustle

    I find it incredibly annoying that we took Jevon Carter over the vastly superior prospect Mitchell Robinson. Why?
  15. Locking up JV long term should be a priority this offseason. Honestly I want AB, Noah, and Wright back too. Ugh. Tanking gonna be tough next year.
