Is Ronnie Brewer Memphis-Bound?

This is what everyone in Utah wants to know, as trade rumor season heats up: “At the center of evident talks: starting shooting guard Ronnie Brewer and at least one first-round draft pick. General manager Kevin O’Connor had no comment Thursday regarding a newspaper report revealing that Memphis and Utah have discussed a potential trade that would send defense-minded swingman Brewer to the Grizzlies. According to The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal and well-sourced beat writer Ron Tillery, the bid for Brewer ‘is the latest development in the Grizzlies’ quest to improve their bench.’ Memphis is known to have initiated the talks, which — while no agreement appears imminent — evidently remain alive. Utah — which sent rookie point guard Eric Maynor and injured forward Matt Harpring’s expiring contract to Oklahoma City last month as part of a cost-cutting deal that will save the Jazz more than $10 million — has not ruled out making additional deals prior to the NBA’s Feb. 18 trade deadline. That includes potential swaps involving not only Brewer, but also others, including two-time NBA All-Star power forward Carlos Boozer.”

    Good for Memphis,but if utah is trying to keep Deron and Booz happy and their trading quality players for picks well.. I dont think thats the way to go

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I’m still wondering how Isiah Thomas could have traded away this pick. Man..

    I know! that being said NY might just make the playoffs or just miss out and are unlikely to have as a high a chance to get a top 5 pick so it really dosent matter at the end of the day.

    Ronnie Brewer’s defensive length would make Memphis MUCH better. if they can swing this one, they should
