Grizzlies/NBA Free Agent Big Board 2021

I think this free agent period will be pretty boring in regards to signing a free agent.
 
I think the front office has made it clear it is through the draft and trades for building the roster, and it seems like the trades are basically for the draft picks.

No one wants this, but I'd like to sign Sterling Brown for cheap. Good size, good splits, nothing special, but a workhorse type veteran.

Calling it now we will use Bledsoe and a first in a sign and trade next week 

I would hope so but I don't think Bledsoe has much value. I don't think he enamored himself with his teammates at his last 2 stops and  his overall scoring has been trending downward since his career year back in 2016-17. The 1st would be vital but once again, a team would have to be in a position to want that pick as well.

Let's hope for the best cause I don't want him around this team or locker room.

He would just be a salary filler. Some team would rather get a first than lose there guy for nothing

We don't have any money but above is a list of free agents and their status and expected salary.

We could always use the MLE and/or BAE on someone or there could be a sign and trade (which are not common)

10 mil is plenty of money and with only like 5 teams with positive cap there will be more sign and trades this year than others

Cool.  I wanna go after guys like this too.  I like Jack White.  He’s currently in the NBL and averaged 2 blocks per game as a 6’5 combo forward.

We currently don't have any room do we? We'll have to get rid of Tyus or someone to even sign someone i think.

At this point don’t you just keep Tyus, Kyle and Adams? I know we want to develop, but I’m not in favor of the no productive vets rout.

We only have the Room exception this year as we are behaving like a cap space team after the trade with NOLA.

I agree only thing I would do is a consolidation trade using Tyus and another player for a vet + pick.

Now that I think about it you may be right. We had Waiters,' Guduric's, Hezonja's and Dieng's contracts falling off of the books and then we won't exercise Winslow's option so we would technically be below the salary cap on day 1 and then the trade is executed on day 1 bringing us back above the cap which makes this trade even stranger. It just ensures that we won't sign anyone which it seems to be the purpose of the trade anyway. So yeah, seems like it's just the room exception.
