He also defends pretty well. I'm not sure why we didn't do it to be honest. He has the size to play the 1 or the 2. Most importantly he can score of the bench. He'd certainly be better than Marshon or Wayne. He'd really just be the replacement for Marshon.

The Grizzlies may have wanted to sign him (hence the rumor) but Rivers didn't want to sign with Memphis.

No inside info there. Just a feeling I got from talking to people who should know.

yep - definitely possible. Scoot on over ... make some room for me ! HATE and HATE HARD! 

we don't really have any rivals I guess ... but I sure do have my I HATE THIS GUY and THAT GUY'S GUTS - they are usually Flopper related... CPwee , Flake Griffin, not Deandre - he's cool .

Hate Rivers - BOTH of the Father AND Son and the ... hahaaaa!

Hating on James Harden right now in anticipation of some of the (starts with an F though)-boy stuff he's guaranteed to pull .

(am I gonna have to warn myself for kinda cussin' a lil bit?) 🤔

 

Totally not related to anything in this thread But ... anybody know what happened to JR? How about TA? Where's Mac-Bo? Also Oladipo was burning it up last season ... he flamed out this year or..?

The rumors were we weren't interested, not him. The pay wasn't the issue as Houston is over the luxury line so they only could offer a minimum contract, the same we could offer.

ok... this is kinda important ...

Did we shoulder shrug him ?

OR 

Did he hit us with a shoulder shrug?

 

Enquiring minds want to know.

JR Smith was told to stay away from the team and will probably be bought out at some point.

TA is all but retired. If nobody picked him up last season after being waived I don’t think he’ll have many suitors this season.

Oladipo was injured for a month and his stats are a bit down from last season but he’s still scoring 20 per.

That's what I was thinking. I didn't want him on the Grizzlies anyway.

I would much rather have Zbo as a mentor for Jaren then Noah. Imagine the mentoring from both Gasol and Zbo.

Have to disagree with you here.   Jaren ultimately will be a Center and having 2 former DPOY multiple AllStars that play same position is better than Zbo.  Keep in mind if he was some great mwntor wouldnt he be doin that alreasy in SAC with Bagley, who will play same position?  Instead the coach that actually knows him better than JB (Joerger) instead told him to stay away from team.   

Mentor wise Jaren already in good hands with his ex NBA father and his old teammates.  

Guys like Rabb need more mentorship than Jaren.

Maybe it was because of the fiasco over the trade but the Suns didn't cut Rivers loose when it became known that the Grizz wanted him and then CP got hurt  and Rivers decided he wanted to go to Houston. I'm wondering what Houston will do with Rivers when CP comes back. I would have traded DB and WS if the Grizz could have wound up with Rivers and Oubre.

Me too, Z knew the moves to get open around the goal. But not at 14-15 a year.

Clicked on the preview link and noticed that Carmelo is still listed on the Rockets roster.  I guess it takes more than 45 days to update a website.  Hopefully the Rockets play as slow so the Grizzlies can GaG a NYE W.

I think Carmelo is technically still with them, but I could be wrong.
