Re: “Grizzlies trade Prince and Pondexter for Jeff Green: First reactions

One part of this trade that's being overlooked is the youth that the Grizzlies already have that has been struggling to get minutes. As pointed out, to get Jeff Green and stay under the tax you had to lose Tayshaun's contract plus one more…I think Jordan Adams' strong play recently (especially in Denver) freed up the front office to move off of Pondexter. In addition to raw athleticism and shooting ability, what Green and Adams do that no one else on the roster does consistently (except Gasol; for whatever reason, despite getting hacked regularly Z-Bo and Conley never seem to get calls in big moments) is get to the line. I think we will look back on this trade and not only see its value in at least slowing down the three point barrage from stretch 4s (and 5s) but also in getting Adams more consistently involved in the rotation…which could be huge come May.
