So, Mayo and trash for Love, Miller, and trash.

That... is interesting.

beautiful deal for both teams.

Jefferson+Love=awesome

Conley+Mayo=awesome.

Both guys fit in much better on their new teams.

Grizz have about the most athletic starting lineup in the league now.

Conley
Mayo
Gay
Warrick
Darko

Not saying it'll be productive in Year 1, but it's definitely in the proverbial mold of the future where there are no positions...just players.

Hmm, burning the midnight oil I see...

This should work out for both teams quite well.

I think they still need a PF. Warrick isn't much of an answer. But I'm guessing that they can go after one in Free Agency?

I posted a snippet of the deal from ESPN.com on the draft thread.....

Looks like it's official or it least going to be.

I like for the Grizz.

Conley / Mayo / Gay is a great trio to build off.

I was really hoping the Grizz would go for Monta. Maybe Biedrins now?

Twolves fans @ realgm are going a little crazy. They had high hopes on Mayo and aren't too welcoming on the idea of Love.

Good trade for both teams. Makes since now, I thought Love should go to Minny to begin with.

Agreed. I think he's horrible. Stro Swift 2.0. Darko's awful too, obviously.

But there's no question Hakim is barely human from an athletic standpoint.

I think Memphis actually had a bigger need for Love and Mayo is a better fit in Minnesota. I think both teams made a mistake here.

I was looking forward to the "Gay/Love frontcourt" jokes :(

Hahahahaha...Now that you mention it, this trade NEEDS to be stopped!

I understand why the TWolves did this move....but for the Grizzlies...who have been forcing Chris Wallace to cut salary...take on as much salary.

This trade does not improve the SalaryCap or Financial situation of the Grizzlies. Jaric's contract is WORSE then Cardinal's contract...Mike Miller is equal's to Fatoine's contract and Collins for Buckner is a wash.

Someone is going to have to map out how the Salaries work out for the Grizzlies and the TWolves.

they got rid of Mike Miller.... a long with the player who has the worst contract in Brian Cardinal.

i like Mike Miller and thought he was a good fit with their up-tempo style, now they are overly athletic

Minnesota gets love and Miller.. good deal for them

Yes...but they got back Fatoine ( who has a equal contract with Mike Miller ) and Jaric ( who has a worse contract then Cardinal ).

Rosterwise...I understand why they did this...but from a Financial POV....something that their Owners have been harping all season long...it makes ZERO sense.

At least it shows their gm has a brain and some balls (a partial rack at least).

I think Foye and Miller is a good combo in the backcourt for Minny, and I like the Jefferson Love combo. They are going to need a defensive stopper/slasher at small forward, but things are looking a little brighter for them.

For memphis, Conley, Mayo, Gay, is a great 1-3. Darko still has potential, but they probably need to figure out the 4 spot. They get some decent bigs in there and things will be looking up.
