Not that I expected big moves, but the Lakers and (especially) Clippers standing pat is a bit surprising.

Still expect Clips to get Marcus Morris.

The Lakers thought they were going to get Luka doncic for Kyle kuzma so you know

"The Lakers thought" label covers a wide selection of jokes only surpassed by "The Knicks thought"

Could be, but I'm surprised by the lack of trade talk around them. Plus Morris isn't exactly going to get them over the LA Lebrons.

Can't believe GSW would be so high on Wiggins. Thought it would take a lot more to move that monster contract. 

This makes minny a much better team and now FA destination. Not good for the rest of the west

Wiggins doesn't need to be the man in GS. He's the 3rd guy, maybe even 4th behind Draymond. Perfect spot for him really.

Cavs get Drummond for some expirings and the lesser of GSW and their 2nd in 2023. You cant get a FRP for jack these days. 

I don't know what the Cavaliers are going to do with Drummond... but that is one hell of a steal.  Wow.

Another boring nothing got done trade deadline day for the Grizzlies. 

Image result for not gif

This front office has been more willing to make deals than I have ever seen in Memphis. Jerry West was supposed to be a wizard of deals but he didn't make moves like this. Chris Wallace was a trade deadline disappointment year after year. These guys make deals happen and I love the way they not only make deals but make intelligent deals (i.e. no cash consideration deals). 

Jordan Bell played college ball with Dillon Brooks. Tyus Jones and Georgi Dieng were teammates in Minnesota and led the team as the best two man combo on the roster last year. It's little things like that which can help a team get chemistry quickly despite the roster shakeup. Winslow fits in perfect with our team. Waiters could be the best bench scorer in franchise history. 

Did they take risks? Yes but they are intelligent risks. I love this new front office. 

I now have to go redo all the upcoming pregame threads.

Ja/Tyus/Melton

Dillon/Allen/Waiters/Guduric/Konchar*

Winslow/SlowMo/Josh/Yuta*

Jaren/Clarke/Bell

JV/Dieng

Didn't know where else to put this but my mans Jeremy Pargo is back in the big league. I really liked him that one year but they set him up to fail. Bringing in an undrafted rook like that to backup Conley. Kinda the same thing happened with Calathes.

Dude I was just about to make a thread in NBA Talk about this!!! I was a huge fan of him when he was here and have followed his career ever since. I saw him play with Santa Cruz a few weeks ago and he balled out. Really happy he is back in the league even if it’s just for a 10-day. I’ll def be watching his game against the Lakers tomorrow on ABC.

Obligatory Pargo highlights:

He’s not being assigned a number, so regardless of if/when he’s actually waived, bought out or traded he’s not going to play for us.

4th behind a career 9 ppg player?  That's some pretty low expectations.
