Parson’s contract becomes useful next season...

I know this is about 12-14 months too early of a conversation without knowing the team & the roster, but will he be more useful as an expiring contract for the Grizzlies or someone else?

I'm thinking that because of the FA spending frenzy done that summer, there will be a whole lot of disappointing high money contract guys, and I'm not sure the Grizzlies will want to take back crummy salaries.

Unless we are in the running for Kevin Durant (and, honestly, he would be an awesome fit) then should we ride his contract out?  Or trade him next year at the deadline?  Don't throw even more bad money and picks and players at this Parsons deal.

I don't think teams trade for expiring contracts anywhere near as much as they used to. Expiring contracts with small market teams also have less trade leverage because the rest of the league knows that they will not go over the luxury tax threshold. They can't or they lose the revenue sharing. This makes it more likely for them to get more garbage back. I don't expect any large market team to take on an expiring from any team getting small market revenue sharing. They have been complaining about it the last couple of years now.

That's one article from last year that specifically names the Grizzlies.

Anyway, I don't see us getting rid of Parsons without taking back some pain in the form of a losing a couple of 1st rounders or taking another huge salary back.

I wish we could just get off his contract.

Didn't some (named) journalist recently mention he had sources saying Parsons' season was over? I may be wrong but I'd swear I read something.

His career is over.

After all this time, if he can't move on the court without having to be subbed out because of injury and the missing a bunch of games, he's finished.

I just don't know why the management can't persue a termination based on him being medically unfit?

We couldn't get away with it in our workplace

Parsons is done, he will never play meaningful minutes in a match ever again.

It's not our doctors that can determine if he'll be out for the season (or for good) but the NBA's. And they won't if all he has is "knee soreness."

 

Surely now the FO can force the issue and request the NBA doctors to look at him?

I wouldn't be surprised the FO is not even persuing this course of action because the truth might come out about how he was signed in the first place.

There's got to be a legal way they can peruse a termination, right?

Yeah maybe this could be the FO trying to cover their *** and not admit that they didn't give him a physical, etc. 

What a disappointment. I still believe there has to be SOME way we can get relief for a guy who plays less than 10% of games while under contract. **** players' union... 😋(jk)

All contracts must be approved by the NBA. Because of that I am sure the Grizzlies, as did the rest of the NBA teams, had access to Parsons physical evaluation. This is why so few teams gave him an offer. I believe the truth is that the Grizzlies gambled on him to heal, as they gambled on Wright, Vince, and Reke. Wright claimed that he had an offer for more money, but failed to say if that offer was guaranteed. I'm sure it wasn't, and that's why he signed with Memphis. The F.O. was hoping that Parsons would only be out 1/2 year or a full season at the most. 

The Grizzlies didn't fail to give him a physical or "waive" it (as some have said), they just minimized it and hoped for the best.

its a really bad situation. I hate it for him, because I know that he wants to play. just need to accept the fact that this is a huge contract that cannot be moved until it naturally dies at the end of next year. accept that and do not compound a bad situation.

until that time, maybe he can come back and give us a little production every other game for a stretch or two..

the point is: don't try and get creative and sly with his contract. it is what it is.

now, medical retirement....im all in.

 

slim.
