SportingNews: MEM's #5 pick for Ariza? (possibly a joke)

Postby HisAirness24 on Tue Jun 24, 2008 2:46 pm

I don't know if I'm reading this right, but Sam Smith (yes I know he's not too credible), put this in his draft predictions preview:
5. Memphis Grizzlies. Kevin Love, F/C, UCLA. Talk is that owner Mike Heisley is more involved than ever, which could mean giving the pick to the Lakers for Trevor Ariza. But the consensus lately has been the Grizzlies will take Love, which seems to run counter to their athletic team plan. But they're anxious to deal Mike Miller, and this pick is likely in play as well.

Don't know if I understand why Memphis would do it, but hey, I'd be down for it.

Let me start my saying that Ariza is one of my favorite players on this team, our 2nd best perimeter defender, and I think he could have a very good season next season.

But... :man10: :man10: :man10:

If they're willing to get raped by the Lakers again, I'm all for moving Trevor.

[It was a sarcastic remark at just how idiotic their front office is, but I wouldn't put anything past them]

Sam Smith was being funny, although Ariza is just good enough that it could be somewhat believable at first glance because of how bad they got destroyed in the last trade. He should have picked a worse player like Coby Karl or someone to make it obvious.

It's more like a booty call if you ask me, and didn't the Grizz not learn their lesson the first time.

Well, after reading in NBA Discussion that Marc Gasol for Minnesota's 3rd pick was rumored, anything is possible, especially with the Grizzlies looking to shed salary.

But, I later found out it was a joke.

this rumor is so stupid that no one on this board would even had the balls to post something like this.

#5 pick for a guy that was out for 4 months, has a bad foot apparently, and will make all of 2 or 3 million (which is no cap space cleared off after his contract), albeit a good defender, who also plays the same position as rudy gay

sure, makes alot of sense to me
