Good luck getting a free agent. Who is the last good free agent the Grizzlies have been able to lure?

Memphis could maybe make a run at Monta Ellis.

Cant really think of any other FA that would even consider going to Memphis.

Salaries don't match. Portland I believe is over the cap. I'm not sure, I don't know how they handled that Darius Miles thing but we wouldn't want to trade down to 28. All the guys that we wanted in the late teens and early twenties would be gone by then and we'd have to start looking at positions that we don't really need like centers and power forwards.

The only way I like the Cardinal, Colins, 5 trade is if we release Colins. No need for dead weight on our already heavy roster. At least Cardinal can somewhat shoot and rebound.

Cardinal is the more viable option for a buy out because he has an extra year.
