    Here's one most forum members will find more palatable:

    Meyers for Belinelli.

    Works and gets us under the luxury tax threshold.

    The question is, what else would we have to give ATL?

    Probably a good change of scenery for Meyers, too. At least he wouldn't have to worry about the hometown fans booing him. They have none.

    This would be an Olshey special. This is someone I’ve wanted to take a chance on for awhile. I know his numbers are whatever, but this would be the definition of buying low. His shooting percentages when playing 20+ minutes last season were very impressive.

    McLemore and Brendan Wright’s expiring for Leonard(Or Moe) and Layman works financially.

    I think we stay put. And based on the realistic trade proposals I'm seeing I think it's the right move.

    I'm sure we'd have to take Parsons and his contract.

    Grizzlies have put McLemore on the block pretty much.

    No. 1st rounders too valuable. Especially to Portland.

    You really think the Grizzlies would give up the best two players (one of whom is expiring) for Meyers Leonard and that contract?

    Anything outside of us giving them $15M+ works financially.

    I think the Pistons will end up with Mitotic.

    The guy the Grizzlies are really going to try to deal is Parsons. You want Evans or McLemore or anyone else on that team your going to have to take on Parsons and his contract.

    There really is nothing that suggests McLemore is actually a better, or more valuable player than Meyers. Leonard’s numbers show he’s a better shooter and more impactful on both ends of the court. He also plays a more premium position.

    They probably have a better package to offer than Utah. Stanley Johnson would be a good starting point for Chicago.

    Why would anyone with a brain take on Parsons for a rental like Tyreke Evans? Plz reboot.

    Ok, but why would MEM wanna swap 2 years and $10M of McLemore for 3 years and $30M of Leonard?
