Default Kinsey Cut

I know there is a thread in the main NBA forum, but I wanted to see what you Grizz fans in particular thought of one of your best defenders and potential 15PPG scorer if given starting minutes being cut?

Is it just cutting roster space open ready for a trade? (The signing of Jeremy Richardson may only be a temporary one maybe?)

Could Kinsey have fallen out with the backroom staff at his lack of minutes? (I wouldn't blame him considering the job he did when given starting minutes last season, 18PPG anyone?)

Or are the Grizzlies just stupid for doing it?

I've heard that he is already being readied to sign for the Hornets.

Well, I'd like to give my honest opinion on this but it would contain provocative language and me basically calling the Memphis management a bunch of tools for an entire post. So I'll leave it at this, The Grizzlies are f'ing retarded for waiving Kinsey. I tried to remove as much as I could from the initial point, but as you can see there's still some harsh words.

Couldn't agree more. Jacobsens a '3 point shooter' who's shooting 28% from beyond the arc.

I think its because Iavaroni brought Jacobsen in, and Kinsey was already there. Perhaps too stubborn to cut the player he brought in?

This is the dumbest move Memphis management has made since the signing of Brian Cardinal.

It very well may be, but I doubt it's as bad.

And thankyou for reminding me of the Cardinal signing, that paired with Kinsey being waived makes me want to cry.

The only reason I can imagine for keeping Casey Jacobsen is they don't want (or the think they won't be able) to keep Navarro.

I know that's pretty ridiculous, Navarro is far better player than Jacobsen, but I can't think of another reason.

Kinsey was not playing at all and Jacobsen was backing up the 2 and the 3 spots. Since his contract was becoming guaranteed by today, they just decided to waive him. Still dumb movement IMO because they are not saving "real" money (I think Tarence earns around 500k$) while the lose a talented player, but I think it is the only reason.
I think that movement has been a big mistake because at the end of the season the Grizz will have only one SG (Miller) in the roster, since both Navarro and Jacobsen's contracts finish by that date. I don't see the Grizzlies giving an extension to Casey and re-signing JC could be tough considering how good he is performing. So there would be a new hole to fill which would have been really assured with Kinsey still in the roster.

Just found Kinsey's salary and he seems to be earning 183k$. Hope it is wrong, because waiving him just to save that ridiculous amount of money is stupid.

I dont know maybe there was locker room issues.Like maybe kinsey wanted to play more.He had a right to be upset about time.Casey is just a younger skinnier version of cardinal.Also a hell of alot cheaper.I guess there wasnt enough room.But for a team that is doing this bad.They need all the help they can get.Makes no sense to cut players that can help.I could se the spurs or suns cutting a player like kinsey.But the grizzlies, come on.
