I'm quite happy with this trade. I've always been a big supporter of Rudy, but he never played up to the expectations, or salary paid. Grizzlies weren't going to win it all with him, so may as well realize that now and keep building.

Rosterwise I don't think the Grizzlies have suffered too much, with the addition of Prince and Davis. This is one hell of a defensive unit. Also, I believe these guys will blend in better with Conley and ZBo than Rudy did.

Only move I felt bad about so far was letting OJ leave. Would love to see him on this roster.

Since Cuban wants to keep Carter so bad, you should have re-acquired OJ Mayo lol.

Cuban turning down Calderon is just boneheaded. I doubt it'd get Dallas to the playoffs but it'd sure as hell give em a better shot, and it saves a few mil on the cap.

They still have to do something about Bargniani. Playing him is not good and they can't seem to trade him. But they also can't let him stay on the bench and not play at all. Wtf are they supposed to do? wave him?
And as I said. Shit load of wing players. And they need a good backup PF if amir gets a starting job.

They should get Motiejunas. Rockets don't play him at all so they probably wouldn't want for him much. Motiejunas WORST case scenario is Bargniani at a very low price.
I know people seem to not value him but if given a chance he would be a pretty good player. Right now I think he would play better than Valanciunas(even though Val is a C and Motiejunas is a PF)

I'd say just amnesty Bargs but what's the point now, their cap's already shot to hell.

Aww this made me sad.

"The fans have been with me since day 1, so it's tough to leave." - Calderon, choking back tears, before he left the arena.



Love this guy, have always wanted him on my Clips and I hope Detroit treats him well

i would love to, but BC would never amnesty his no. 1 pick. dude is seriously in love with him. if he plays bad he questions everyone else. it's seriously pathetic.

no, he'll try and try to find a trade for him, hoping some poor soul will give us some picks or cap space.

I bet he thinks he'll get more for Vince... Like Cuban's last couple of free agency gambles paid off so well. I mean, Vince is having a great year considering his age, but a trade for Calderon is a no-brainer. Dallas is so bad at the PG position. No one can consistently create, and even a simple pick and roll with Dirk seems to be impossible.
