    Melton's getting paid significant backup guard money and he's way better than 2021 Bledsoe, gotta either buy him out or flip him for scraps.

    I don't think he can, and Melton is much better and younger.

    Would have to be flipped for scraps as he's too young to be leaving money on the table at this point in his career.

    Don’t forget about Tyus Jones… more of a traditional PG but is super passive on the floor worried about turnover ratios. Making just as much as Melton

    Good trade for both teams. Grizzlies can also afford to play Steven Adams since their 4s can shoot. And looks like they are getting rid of Bledsoe.

    Losing Jonas will hurt though because he was their most consistent player last season and 1B.

    they could shoot last year yet they were at the bottom of the league in 3 point shooting by every metric. :mjlol:
    granted a lot of that has to do with JJJ being out..........but they realize their ceiling as a team is dependent on them getting another playmaker that can shoot(via draft) and JJJ staying healthy and get all those touches that were allotted t JV...and reaching his potential.
    you aint winning nothing with a 7 footer that doesnt possess generational talent....being a large focal point of your offense. he aint embiid or jokic.

    Yeah the key will be JJJ staying healthy, if he has another year where he's not available it will go bad real quick because JV was the reason they did well during regular seasons. Grizzlies are ready to fully commit to JJJ though, hopefully it works out for them. Adams won't hurt them as bad as he hurt the Pelicans. He was a zero threat on offense and a bad defender.

    The Pels have to do anything possible to keep Zion there. He is already making noise about wanting out.
