Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys

Memphis Grizzlies no será esta temporada uno de los equipos de la Conferencia Oeste que vaya a pelear por entrar a playoffs. Después de iniciar una reconstrucción el curso pasado con los traspasos de Marc Gasol, en febrero, y de Mike Conley, en junio, la franquicia de Tennessee hará uso del famoso ‘tanking’ para escalar puestos en el próximo Draft.

Y es que, en los últimos años, los Grizzlies han conseguido jugadores muy interesantes de cara al futuro. Sin ir más lejos, sus dos últimas selecciones de gran nivel han sido Jaren Jackson Jr (2018) y Ja Morant (2019).

Jackson Jr fue uno de los rookies más destacados de la temporada pasada. De hecho, fue incluido en en el Primer Quinteto de Rookies de la NBA, junto a Luka Doncic, Trae Young, DeAndre Ayton y Marvin Bagley III.

Morant, por su parte, es una de las tres grandes estrellas de este último Draft. Elegido en el puesto n.º 2 de primera ronda, el joven base está llamado a ser el líder de Memphis para las próximas temporadas de la liga.

Luego se encuentra el factor Jonas Valanciunas. El pívot lituano renovó este verano con la intención de ser la imagen de la veteranía – junto a Andre Iguodala si no es traspasado – dentro del vestuario. Junto a Ja Morant y Jaren Jackson Jr, será una de las referencias de los Grizzlies en los partidos.

Predicting which players will still be on the Memphis Grizzlies’ roster after the 2020 NBA Trade Deadline
The Memphis Grizzlies are rolling into training camp with 20 players under contract. Obviously, that’s more than the maximum roster size they can carry into the regular season, so some players have got to go before opening night- but even after that, the Grizzlies will be carrying some interesting names into the season.

The plans for one of the Grizzlies are extremely public, but what about everyone else? Which players will still be in a Memphis uniform come February 7th and beyond? I’ll make some educated guesses.

The guys with one foot out the door
Andre Igoudala ($17.2 million) – If a suitable trade candidate isn’t found by the deadline, he’ll be (finally? begrudgingly?) bought out. I think a trade package of a couple of second-rounders from someone who’s top-4 in the West will materialize in February, if not on December 15th.

Ivan Rabb ($1.6 million) – I’m not confident he’ll even make the roster. I’m thinking he’ll be cut outright because he’s just not a consistently productive NBA player. He played in Summer League for the third year in a row, and he just didn’t look like a third-year NBA player. He shouldn’t and won’t be in the team’s future plans.

Miles Plumlee ($12.5 million) – The oldest Plumlee is on an expiring deal. He’ll most likely be moved or packaged with another player for the Grizzlies to take on some longer-term money and assets.

Josh Jackson ($7 million) – Josh is starting the season with the Memphis Hustle down in Mississippi and not participating in the Grizzlies’ training camp. The Grizzlies have until October 31 to pick up the $8.9 million 4th-year option on his contract. I’m leaning toward believing that he’ll have the option picked up, but he’s on thin ice with Memphis, a team with absolutely no incentive to keep him around if his legal situation doesn’t improve. If anything happens, they’ll figure out a way to get him off the books, option or no option.

Matt Mooney ($898k) – Mooney is on an Exhibit 10 contract. He won’t make the final roster, but he’ll likely spend the season with the Hustle if he impresses in training camp. Mooney is an excellent 3-point shooter, so he could definitely find a spot in the league even if his stop in Memphis doesn’t work out.

A esa columna vertebral se suman jóvenes que todavía no han conseguido explotar en la liga: Tus Jones, Dillon Brooks, Ivan Rabb, Bruno Caboclo…

En resumidas cuentas: el presente de Memphis Grizzlies no es muy atractivo que se diga, pero el futuro es más que prometedor. Los aficionados tendrán que tener mucha paciencia para volver a ver a su equipo en unos playoffs de la NBA.
