A guy I have always really liked who got his qualifying offer pulled is Garrison Mathews. Love his two-way grittiness and he can hit shots. 39% from three over two years and the guy is a strong defender. High effort, great feet and lateral quicks and toughness.

He also can get white hot from three like here against the Heat.

Here is another reel with some defensive highlights.

Get him in for a camp invite. He's like Matt Thomas with good defense and real movement shooting.

I really thought the Wiz bringing him back was a no-brainer;
He isnt the most athletic guy and is about to turn 25 but he plays his butt off.

Could do well in a Nick Nurse system as an end of the bench guy.

I think it is just weird that no one has signed him. At least from from an outside perspective he looks like the type a Joe Harris type that scraps his way into the league. The shot is there.

Raptor fans wanted Antetokounmpo in 2021. They get their man in free agency. Well done Masai!

They might as well move Siakim at this point with all these young forwards that are gonna need time.
Siakim will only contribute to meaningless wins, we need to lose... FVV is another guy who will probably lose patience and try to be a hero

Tyler Bey just got waived, we should give him a
E-10 deal for the 905. Wouldn't be bad to have in our system to see if we can get something out of him.

Was 15-9 last year in the Gleague

There were plenty of Memphis fans that made fun of the Grizz replacing Pau Gasol with Marc Gasol, too. He was young, unproven, and clearly never going to be as good as his superstar big brother.

Stranger things have happened.

Looks like a Norm Powell player from his college profile but with more height. Also a defender.

If you take your development program seriously there are no meaningless wins.
