Default new rumors

The grizz are looking at two players.Ime Udoka OR MATT BARNES.Sorry for caps.Barnes is like 6'7'' and a small forward.Udoka is 6'5'' and a tweener.Barnes would be better then cardinal or any other backup at the three.plus his three point shooting really jumped last year.He has shown improvement with more playing time.The problem is he looked good on a run and gun team.There is no telling if he can play all styles.

I like Barnes. Didn't he drop 37 on the grizz last year?

I don't know anything about Udoka so I can't comment on him.

Barnes however I really don't like. He is so out of control when he plays. He hasn't proven that he can play well in any other system other than run and gun. He was pretty much unheard of before this season. I think that he is a classic example of a system player. I would stay away from any sort of substantial offer for Barnes.

Well I agree some level that he is a system player.However if that is the system we are going to play then we might need to look at him.

I know he started for porland last year.He got I think like 29 minutes a game.His shot is better then barnes.But barnes overall stat were actually better.I f you consider that barnes played six minutes less.

The Grizz are looking to run. That is the system. Fratello- ball is out now. Personally I would rather have someone other than those two but according to the rumors printed in the paper they are the two choices now.

yeah it looks like they are just looking at filler...just read on the CA they
are looking at Casey Jacobson...he hasn't played since 2004...Wallace said
he wasn't going to make a trade so the team is set except for the filler piece
guess they gave up on trying to make a deal for Navarro...looking at their
roster now is very young...we'll see how this roster gels...im not so sure
they are that much better now than last year..if darko doesn't play well and their young guards struggle this could be another long year

I disagree.Pau will be healthy,which is a plus.There point guard play will be improved.We have an actual big playing next to pau.Rudy is a year older,and looks better.We will easily be better this year.Is jacobson a free agent?

Pau and Miller actually being healthy will give us a good start to the beginning of the season. Rudy has matured and improved his game and looks like he can be a very good player on this team. No doubt, we will finish with a better record this season.

Yeah im thinking at worst.Including the learning curve for certain players.We could stumble into around 38 wins.

I hope you're right. Not sure of his status. He stopped playing for a couple of years. Not sure why. Hopefully he still knows how to shoot.

I think the Grizz will get around 35-40 wins assuming they stay healthy. They aren't much different from the Grizz teams that made the playoffs for 3(?) straight years.

The point guard play going to play a big part in how good of a season they have. Conley and Lowry are both very young and neither of them have lead a team at the NBA level. As long as they can run the offense and distribute the ball effectively then the Grizzlies should get around 35-40 wins.
