Default Re: NBA Draft Day Blunders: Where does Memphis drafting Thabeet over Harden in 2009 rank?

Vasquez was traded for Pondexter, plus we already had a starting pg in Conley

But yeah Grizzlies could've had a better team with those picks. The problem was we were really hesitant in making big moves and was content with saving money.

IIRC even Lowry, Sam Young, Demarre Carrol were all traded to save money or to get one year rentals out of players like Ronnie Brewer, Shane Battier.

The team never had foresight to develop players in case things doesn't work out (Rudy Gay)
