Why does Memphis do it?
They give Eddie Jones, who is a solid player in his last contract year, and they get:
- Wally, who is a good player, but with a bad contract and maybe the Grizzlies don't need him as they already have Miller.
- LaFrentz, still useful, but has a bad contract too and isn't what memphis is looking for at center.
They also lose a first round pick in the process. Getting rid of Brian Cardinal is not enough.
