Maybe they'd let him go in order to get something for him and utilize space in the 2022 offseason if we don't extend JJJ. Maybe we extend JV, JJJ, and Anderson and look to be an over the cap team the next half a decade.
I don't see who the target would be, but if Memphis made a play for a third star and the other team preferred a Boston pick or whatever you guys package together over Anderson then maybe it gets done that way?
Any chance the Grizzlies settle for a future second rounder if the Celtics absorb Anderson's salary via their TPE? The Griz would create enough cap space to go after a max free agent this offseason.
Anderson was arguably the Grizz best player for a good portion of the season, The ultimate intangible player, high BBIQ, unselfish, solid defense etc..
Would you trade one of your most effective & winning players for a 2nd round pick, simply for cap space?.
Where if Memphis wanted cap space they only need to exercise Winslow's team option & drop his 15m opening up 20m+ to spend.
Memphis will need far better incentive than cap space & a 2nd round pick to move on from Anderson.
Yeah I think Memphis would want more than a 2nd and cap space. I don't see a 30m free agent who, plus a Boston 2nd, would be better for our team over a 20m free agent and Anderson.
