It would devalue the lottery pick that you receive to also turn around and trade the 25th pick in the deal unless your trade partner is Portland and you are recieving both the 6th & the 11th and a useful player like Matthews. No way the Grizz trade both Rudy and the 25th for a lone lottery selection. That would not make any sense.

Hey guys, kind of off-topic but worth posting on here. So I'm in Chicago airport Friday heading to my terminal to fly home to PA and a big familiar looking black gentleman walks by me and I realized it was Z-Bo. He was even wearing a throw-back Vancouver Grizzles hat backwards. Was pretty cool to see him just out and about. Not sure why he'd be in Chicago though. Does he live there or something?

Maybe Zbo could've been set to visit relatives who live in Chi-town. He's from Indanapolis so he could've been taking a flight from Chi-town to Indy. Who knows?

I hope he was in Chicago getting some time with Tim Grover (MJ's former trainer) and scheduling future visits. ZBO was actually in the best shape of his career prior to his injury this year.

mnmnmn, so rockets add lin, asik but lost dragic and lowry, but gets 3 first rounders, lakers add nash, thunder "someone big" enought, ours last killers clippers lost evans who was a factor against gasol but sign billups and crawford and they are still young they are gonna be betters, phoenix lost nash, but add dragic, beasley and maybe eric gordon, minessota gets batum, and they are young too...we must do something: barbosa, and lee please, if we cant get the last one i would go for b. rush.

All those teams you named didn't get significantly better. Portland is about to match Minnesota's offer for Batum. Phoenix isn't a threat to us. Lakers got worse defensively and they still need to add more shooters to their lineup. Dallas is in bad shape. Clippers added a chucker and a guy who quit on his team last year and Odom, who is still questionable. They lost Evans, Foye, Young, Martin, who were all pretty big in the series against us.

The Grizzlies are fine. I'm sure they will make the right signings for the team. We have less needs to fill than a lot of the teams in the West. We got Speights back and I'm hoping we can get DA back as well. Add our shooter and/or vet PG and we are set. We haven't moved down from our 4th seed ranking last year. Depending on what the Spurs do, we may be top 3. I don't think the Clippers are better than us by the end of the off-season.

From what I know, Wallace was out of town this week and will look to bring in more guys this weekend and next week. The CA reported that Memphis has reached out to about 15 players. That list is probably shorter now or maybe even longer.

There are definitely a bunch of guys out there still available that will fit our needs. I'm not sure if we are still looking to offer the full MLE to anyone being that the bigger name guys are gone (Allen, Terry, Young) and after giving Speights his deal. The only way we can use the full MLE is by withdrawing our QO from DA. We can only use the tax payer MLE at this point, which I'm fine with.

Guys that are still left:
Foye
Hinrich
Rush
Bayless
Lee
Belinelli
G. Green
Meeks

I also heard something about bringing in Weems. He doesn't necessarily fit the "shooter" mold, but he's definitely a scorer that we could add to our bench. I'll rather pass up on him for the time being and fill these needs. I really hope we can get Hinrich. 38% career 3 point shooter, still a solid defender and can play both guard spots. The last I heard on him was Chicago offering $1.2M. I think we could do a little better than that by giving him close to $2M. Spend the other $1M on someone like Meeks, if possible.

Hinrich is back in Chi-town as expected. Good move on their part with Rose likely missing the whole season. Weems isn't a shooter,but more or a scorer. Still wouldn't bring him in. If I'm the Grizz, I'm looking at Lee, Meeks, and Rush for our next shooter.

OK - I can dig the Bayless signing (2 years, second is a player option - at the Mini MLE starting @ $3 million). Follow it up with someone that can somewhat shoot from the outside and the Grizz can call it a day.

You guys might just get your wish on hoping Rudy Gay gets traded. I'm pretty close with some people in his camp and from what they are telling me, it sounds like he's not happy.
So a trade may just happen here in the future.

Rudy Gay is a big time player. You elected to Let Juice Mayo to go. Gotta keep Rudy now. He the only other Grizz who is a big time shot creator.

Not exactly, Bayless has that capability, and unlike Wroten and Selby he's proven to be able to do it in the NBA level.

If Quincy Pondexter continues this type of performance, I think we have found a long term solution at SG. We are still in need of a swingman and I still have no idea why Ellington is on the team. His only value is shooting and Selby does it better.

Bayless could either fill the O.J Mayo bench void or become our next starting point guard. I seriously think he has starter potential. Depends on how much scoring load Gay and Z-Bo have.

Bayless has no shot at either. He's not as good as Conley and he does not have the size to play the 2 spot as OJ Mayo did. I can see Q Pon filing in for Allen for offensive late game situations

Hollins is scaring me. I keep seeing him use a Conley-Bayless backcourt. We are not going to be a top 10 defense if he keeps doing this


Gasol stank it up against Houston.

Gay had a poor game but he got to the line often. I would like to see more of that. This is what a star player should do when his shot isn't falling

Conley is playing like an All Star

Selby should replace Ellington as the spotup shooter.
