So, who is leaving?

Or maybe there is a 2 for 1 deal that can be done? Perhaps Markelle Fultz for JaMychal Green and a Brooks to be named later?

Better be Marshon and verified from the beginning

Rivers is worse than Selden and Brooks because he'll play more minutes. That guy's not coming here for less than 20 or 25 minutes a game

Yea but there is also a chance he may play more than Shelvin too which has to mean something too, right. 

 

I am torn on this one.   No doubt he is an upgrade over Selden and Marshon.  He is only 26y can create his own shot and adds some playmaking.    BUT he isn't a good player and is very hateable.

We always seem to get the players nobody really wants.

True but if all he costs is a min deal and losing Wayne or Marshon.  It's hard to balk at it.    Our wing rotation is atrocious and 2nd year Dillon isn't gonna save it.

Rivers doesn't move the needle much for the Grizz anyway. The biggest difference between the Grizz in October and November and now, besides Conley and Gasol regressing back to their norms, is the lack of defense. If they are not going to hold each other accountable to D up every night, then they need to "Stop tryin' for Zion" and join the tank/lottery sweepstakes. There is no one they can get that will score 25/gm, which is what they need , absent elite D.

This is just hilarious. Management trying to keep the roster on edge, I guess?

Rivers sucks.

Team chemistry will take a hit certainly. Are they sabotaging the season for Zion?

Its fake news

Contrary to today’s reports, a source with knowledge of the negotiation tells The Daily Memphian that while the Grizzlies considered the matter, the team is not signing Rivers. Unlike on Friday night, when early reporting seemed to reveal some internal confusion among the NBA teams involved in a proposed transaction, this seems merely to be a case of a premature report.

Lol Shams is never gonna trust a source on the Grizzlies again. 

2 times in a week he's been PLAYED 😂

Actually, most people are believing that the original leak on the trade deal was from the Suns. And this also sounds like it came from the Suns. Shams won't trust his source in Phoenix anymore.
