I think Prince is a better spot up shooter than Rudy Gay, but Rudy Gay is much better at getting his own shot, lucky the Grizzlies need a spot up with Z-bo and Marc on the block and Conley slashing. Good trade for both teams imo.
ive always thought prince was a great system defensive player. he hasnt been able to stop too many ppl since the wallaces were no longer around him. ben and rasheed were defensive beasts in that system.
That should be sweet for the Grizzlies. He will have plenty of open looks!
When will Pondexter be back?
Conley / Bayless / Wroten
Allen / Pondexter
Prince / Daye
Randolph / Arthur
Gasol / Davis
The bench looks good. They will regret trading Ellington though
There hasn't been an official date but I'm guessing Pondexter will be back after All Star Break. Chris Johnson from the d-league (6'6" rookie G/F out of Dayton) is the Ellington replacement. The front office knew what it was doing, they got him for nothing. At one point like a week before he was traded Ellington had made 35 3s for the grizzlies and 13 came in 2 games. He was very inconsistent and not a good defender and has a slow release. Chris Johnson. Has better size, athleticism, is a better defender, and has a quick lefty release and shoots with all the confidence in the world. He produces what Ellington does in way less minutes and on a super cheap contract. Total Hollinger move.
