Grizzlies acquire Avery Bradley

Recommended Posts

Maybe the saved money on the Bradley deal allows them to sign Bruno for the rest of the year without going into the tax, I wouldn't mind seeing them do that and then try to lock him up for a couple of years on a cheap deal in the offseason.

They better give us a 1st or that deal is worst than the Gasol one

we only saved them like 2m next year  maybe a top 55 protected 2nd comes our way

Soooo, we could’ve had Houston’s 1st round pick for those dudes and took Avery Bradley instead? 🤦🏾‍♂️

Ugh pass them my way please bro...

The ONLY thing that makes sense to me is that we are still trying to win... which would be hilarious... but surely we didnt just trade all those guys for zero future assets with a rebuild in mind????

I get what they are doing. It is a interesting strategy.
Memphis has 2019 pick, if top 8, and and 2020 pick if top 6.  2021 is Boston if we don't give it before hand.

By getting a bunch of expiring contracts, and contract flexibility, we would be able to take first for cash dumps if we want to. Also we would be players on free agency, if we try to compete sooner.
The contracts other teams wanted to give us were too long, and not flexible enough even thought they came with a first round pick.

The other option would be less flexibility plus 1 low tier 1st round pick.

This is what I first thought, but they would not have been able to do the Toronto deal.

Avery and Deion Wright are about what Temple and Green will be.

They obviously still believe defense and no offense wins games

GNG 3.0?

They are still hoping to convey the Boston pick this draft

Who do ya'll think wanted JaM?    I never saw actual teams linked to him.    

I only wanted to flip one of them for Fultz but turns out the asking price was too high. 

 

Bradley will be a trade chip as an expiring or cap relief.

Soooooo.......Where in the hell is the focus on youth to go with JJJ??

Val is 7 years younger than Mark and slightly better at this point imo. Upgraded backup pg spot with a 26yo first rounder from ‘15. Not super sexy, but folks overvalue 1st rd picks outside the lottery.
