Well I know what Bryan is probably thinking..."not going to make trades...to much talent being offered!"

Oh man, I hope these owners don't ruin the team by penny pinching to the extent of PHX. I like seeing small market success.

If I'm Memphis I look really hard at a Zbo for Pau deal, presuming Pau's medical records look OK. Their best chance to win the title this year may be to go all in with that Gasol bros deal

As much as I distrust MLSE right now, this is a reminder that we could have it much, much worse. It's sad to see good teams dismantled because of penny pinching owners. And if Z-Bo is gone, you can bet they'll squeeze as many playoff appearances as possible out of the rest of their roster, rather than going for a proper rebuild.

Too bad for the Grizzlies. They haven't had good ownership since entering the league, it seems.

I like the idea of moving Z-Bo if it can net them Cousins.

The deal that works on the trade machine and makes sense for the Griz would be to send out Randolph and bring in Salmons, Evans and Cousins.

If this ever happens, I will permanently advocate getting rid of everyone in that Memphis Grizzlies front office. It's bad enough that they don't know how to scout draft talent.

I bet Mem should love to get Calderon's expiring contract...would be very disappointed if BC does nothing and letting Calderon walking for free.

Dude, the Grizzlies drafted/acquired Speights, Arthur, Selby, Wroten, all of whom are sitting on the bench, & all of whom were highly thought of at one point. You guys also have Pondexter, who whenever I've watched him play, seems like a good young role-playing wing.

I think the Grizzlies have accumulated some nice young talent through the draft - the Xavier Henry pick was a bust, however.

Not to mention Kyle Lowry, Mike Conley, and Kevin Love (even though they were robbed by Minny)

Weren't all those luxury tax rules supposed to help small market teams and even the playing field? We've seen Harden go to Houston and now Memphis is trying to dump their best players. Meanwhile Lakers, Nets, Knicks, etc. still have some of the highest payrolls.
