Zach Kleiman’s Trade Garden Part 4

Zach Kleiman’s Trade Garden Part 4

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports The trade garden continues to grow, and this one in particular has big implications on the present and future Perhaps the biggest impact piece in the immediate return for Marc Gasol was Jonas Valanciunas. The former top 10 pick, stepped in as the de facto replacement for Gasol at the 5 in Memphis and he provided exactly what young team needed. While he probably preferred Mike Conley to stay and they build something in Memphis, Valanciunas happily re-signed with his new point guard Ja Morant. He was the reliable safety blanket for a...

The Long View: Dillon Brooks and the expectations ahead

Photo by Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE via Dillon Brooks Island season is almost here! Memphis Grizzlies basketball is getting closer. We’re less than 2 weeks away from training camp, and less than 3 from preseason basketball. Isn’t that exciting? Over the past few weeks, I’ve been chronicling a few players on “The Long View” and how last season and this one impact their trajectories. I continue to do so this week with Dillon Brooks. I had Kelcey Wright Johnson of Grind City Media on the podcast to talk about: Dillon Brooks’ performance in the postseason and last...

Marc Gasol and the long way home in Memphis

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via We’re all trying to get there. There was a time when Memphis was the home of Marc Gasol. And in a way, it always will be. Immortality within the Grizzlies organization awaits for Marc. As Tony Allen and Zach Randolph become the first two Grit and Grind cornerstones to receive the honor of number retirement this season, Gasol and Mike Conley will join them in the years to come. And perhaps Marc has done enough to eventually become the first Grizzlies player to enter the hallowed halls of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame - the...

Zach Kleiman’s Trade Garden: Part 1

Zach Kleiman’s Trade Garden: Part 1

Photo by Alex Goodlett/ The Conley Tree On April 11, 2019 the Memphis Grizzlies greatly altered the course of their franchise. Shortly after wrapping up the postseason media session, it was announced that JB Bickerstaff was not going to return as the head coach. Why was that? Zach Kleiman was now in charge after being the assistant GM to Chris Wallace, whose talents were being “reallocated” to the scouting department. In actuality, the Grizzlies were paying Wallace to go on vacation and quit ruining the franchise while having no vision beyond the remnants of the...

NBA 2K22 Debuts

NBA 2K22 Debuts

It’s 2K Day!! Today is arguably one of my favorite days of the year, 2K Day! NBA 2K22 has been released for the second year on both generation consoles, and 2K is here with huge news on both generation releases. With next generation gaming consoles hard to obtain, even for those willing to pay above the sticker, 2K Concepts took care of those stuck on PS4 and XBOX ONE. So, with that being said, I’m going to review both releases, what 2K has done better, and of course - how do the Memphis Grizzlies look on 2K22? Next Generation My Career Advances: Since NBA 2K released...

The likelihood of Kris Dunn and Carsen Edwards staying on the roster

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ The Grizzlies continue their wheeling and dealing. Could the two latest pickups stick around for the opening night roster? The Memphis Grizzlies have done a lot of dealing this offseason. When you take away the draft picks of Ziaire Williams and Santi Aldama, they’ve picked up Steven Adams, Jarrett Culver, Patrick Beverley, Rajon Rondo, Daniel Oturu, Sam Merrill, Juancho Hernangomez, Kris Dunn, and Carsen Edwards. Rondo, Beverley, and Hernangomez are already off on other teams, and with the Grizzlies loaded roster at the moment, a few more of...

The Memphis Grizzlies 2021 trade-a-thon continued on today as the Grizzlies traded Juancho Hernangomez to the Boston Celtics for Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and a 2026 second round pick swap.

Dillon Brooks is close to his optimal role

Photo by Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE via Dillon Brooks has always been asked to do more than we’d like. Now, as expectations heighten around him and with his improvements, he’s closer to an optimal role than he’s even been. Dillon Brooks has had to do a lot over the past four years, maybe more than what was expected out of him. From stepping into the league as a mid-second round pick and immediately having shot creation burden for an injury-depleted roster to being a 2nd/3rd option on offense, Brooks’ play has always led to questions over what he could become in a...
