Memphis Grizzlies want to avoid luxury taxPosted by Inside Hoops
Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley said it’s too soon to predict what moves, if any, that the team will make to improve the roster.
He did emphasize, though, that the franchise isn’t in position to add much salary.
The Griz have big contracts committed to Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. They have Mike Conley on a modest long-term deal, and will have to make similar tough decisions on several free agents this summer.
“We can’t be in the luxury tax business,” Heisley said. “We’ve got to make some financial decisions. That’s without question.
“But we have to step away from this a little bit and let this settle down. I’m not going to allow myself to have any feelings about the roster right now. I don’t want us to look at Game 7 and make decisions for the future. That would be a mistake. You have to look at the season, the players and what’s available. But we’ve got a heck of a lot of talent coming back.”
