I don’t understand why Memphis traded JV for Adams. It’s not a good fit with Ja
I think the rationale from their point of view was to gain the draft pick we gave them, and move up the board in the last draft. Valanciunas was about to be out of contract, so if they didn't want to re-sign him may as well get something for him.

I'm not super convinced that Valanciunas will be the right fit with Zion either FWIW, but David Griffin seems to think so.

I can see that but Adams doesn’t offer any spacing at all. Memphis look their best when Jackson Jnr is at the 5

If you believe the latest whispers, Griffin won't be having a job much longer (one can only hope so)

Yeah Adams is the opportunity cost of getting the draft capital in. Doubt they actually wanted him beyond having a big body around. Not ideal, but he'll be on an expiring next season.

I think they also ended up turning Bledsoe into Jarrett Culver.

If you were the GM of Boston and had to trade one of Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum for a floor general PG (like a Rubio or Chris Paul) who would you trade?
Ummm….are we talking a 36 year old Chris Paul? If so, then neither.

if we’re talking prime Chris Paul, then I think most would say Brown.

Only just realised GSW have played 9 home games, 3 away. Richmond style

7 home in a row, that’s unheard of

Lakers have 12 of their first 15 at home, including 9 of 10 at home through games 6-15.

Three road games were at Portland, San Antonio and OKC.

Home games against Houston x2, OKC, Minny, Charlotte, Cleveland, Memphis and San Antonio.

Obviously not old CP, but someone in their prime like a Rubio.
Sure as hell wouldn’t be trading either of those for Rubio lol 😂

you would only trade a Brown/Tatum for a PG like Morant, LaMelo, Luka, Murray and a couple others.

Impressive. They really should be 10-3 at a minimum against that lot
