Memphis going to sign Arenas as speculated yesterday?

I don't see the point of giving away Young unless they have somebody coming in.

Well the main reason was to get under the Luxury Tax line and to receive the revenue sharing. It's been speculated for a while now that he would be the guy to go since the Grizzlies were roughly $600,000 over the line and Young's contract owed him almost $1,000,000 this year. Now as far as signing Arenas goes, I'm a little confused. I thought the Grizzlies would have to sign him at the vet min of $1.4mil so then we'd have to unload someone like Pargo's $1,000,000 to get under the tax line again. However, the Commercial Appeal tweeted this.

@CAGrizBlog: Because Griz got under tax with Young deal it's easier to sign Gilbert Arenas. Griz would only be on the hook for $300,000 for Arenas

@CAGrizBlog: $300,000 would be prorated amount after NBA picks up a good portion of veteran's minimum.


Someone with more knowledge might be able to explain this.

Wish Indy'd made this move. Philly makes so many moves I want the Pacers to do, especially in the draft.

From what I've read, since the 76ers moved Turner into the starting line up, they wanted more size and physicalness that Meeks and Williams can't give them. Sam is a very strong player, so I guess that's why. No idea who's minutes he'll be taking.

Only a month and a half left so Arenas only gets like 300 K.

Reggie Williams? For the love of GOBB. Hopefully that was a trade idea if they didn't land Sam Young.

Awesome. I'll be really happy to see Sam in a Sixers jersey and Meeks getting less PT.
