It’s that time of year, Grizz Nation. The rumors are flying. The blogs are bursting with time-wasting trade machine ideas. At this point, everyone has their opinion, and where would they share that opinion other than Twitter?
I’ve been reading a lot of Zach Randolph rumors, and while I’m pretty sure trading 1/3 of the foundation of our team is not the move we need to make, I’ll entertain the thought (for a moment). Phoenix has definitely contacted the Memphis Front Office, and I’m sure there have been plenty more deals brought forth.
Thank goodness I’m also reading that the Grizzlies have rejected every offer on the table for Zach. Phew.
What do I think we should do? It’s too obvious; get a satisfactory back-up point guard. We’re hurting without Mike Conley right now, and Nick Calathes is just not used to our grit n grind style. Actually, it seems like he’s not used to American basketball altogether. It would be awesome to find a backup PG who can keep our low turnover count and can spread the floor. Someone needs to go, and someone new needs to come in. So, here are some possibilities.
I hate to speculate, but I’m a blogger. It’s what I do.
I think we could trade Ed Davis, Jon Leuer, or Tayshaun Prince without missing them too much. The Grizzlies could probably get someone very good in return for one of those guys. From there, some possible point guards we can go after:
- CJ Watson from the Pacers
- Eric Maynor from the Wizards
- Devin Harris from the Mavericks
- Aaron Brooks from the Rockets
- Beno Udrih from the Knicks
So Grizz Nation, what do you think?
