    Yeah, the tax is a little less $70 million and the Jazz are a little over $72 million. This was just to limit the tax hit a little bit.

    total steal for memphis. Brewer is a great defender, consistently one of the tops in the NBA in steals, great finishing around the rim..... very solid young player.

    The good thing about this is we actually have someone on the bench who can contribute.

    And no more Demarre Carrol!

    Good deal for Memphis. Watching them last night against my Raptors, we made a huge push in the second quarter when Memphis trotted out a lineup of Marcus Williams, Demarre Carroll, Sam Young, Darrell Arthur, and Zach Randolph. They've got a really nice starting lineup but that bench is pretty bad. Ronnie Brewer is a solid defender and athletic player who will help bring some improvement to the second unit. His jumpshot is pretty shaky though.

    The Jazz obviously have excess wing players and didn't intend to sign Brewer again this offseason.
    on a team like memphis though it wont matter how bad his jumpshot is. This was a VERY nice pick up for the grizzlies, anyone know what pick was?

    good pick up for the grizzlies.. definitely a good help to push for the play off spot.. i really dont know why utah dealt brewer over kyle korver i guess no one wants korver's contract... utah may very well be ok with cj miles and matthews... but this would help mephis' second unit...

    Brewer for a first round trade? He's worth more than that. I guess Jazz really wanted to be under the luxury tax. This move will affect the Jazz in the playoffs.

    Are you really willing to look at these last 2.5 years of commitment and planning and come out with Rudy Gay? If you told me that after we trade Kidd, RJ, Carter, and have to suffer through a historically bad season and at the end of the tunnel we come out with Rudy Gay and John Wall...I'd be pretty disappointed. I'm a big Wall supporter, but we could've gotten him without going through all the muck we are going through.

    I'm not certain how you can believe this. Finances didn't play a part in trading Brewer for a protected lottery pick? Of course finances played a part. O'Connor's doing some very blatant lying.
    Maybe he's trying to say that Ronnie was an issue behind scenes... I don't know if that's true at all, but maybe?
