Then they have their starting PF is Bourousis who is the best big man in the world that's not in the NBA and he could easily start in the NBA. Then a backup PF in Printezis who the Raptors have reportedly already offered a contract to, and so forth.

It is very hard for any 23 year old to get playing time on that front line.

Don't bother with him. He thinks a D-League guy who only plays 19 minutes and averages more turnovers than assists can be an 8-time AllStar in the NBA

I think that if he went to the Grizzlies, they'd have to start him and trade Conley for a promising young power forward or center (good luck finding one of those). No way he goes to either team and isn't the starter by January. In fact, even if he winds up on the Wizards or the Clippers somehow I can't see him warming the bench. He's got so much potential that, for better or for worse, established guys are going to be moved to make room for him, almost in the same way that Kirk Hinrich lost his starting spot to Derrick Rose despite being a more than adequate point guard in his own right.

Originally I was angry about this - brought back thoughts of Danny Ferry, Steve "Franchise" Francis, etc - but after reading through 15 pages of back and forth posts and actually THINKING about it......I don't blame him for having a preference....also, while there is the whole "prestige" thing of playing in the "best league" (NBA), if I had physical skill and the drive to compete at this level and had to choose to play in Memphis, Oklahoma City or Spain.....and I was actually FROM Spain, I'd choose Spain.....I don't blame this kid for having a preference and for making that preference known.
