‘Mutual Interest’ Between Grizzlies and Josh McRoberts?

Per the Commercial Appeal, there appears to be common interest between free agent forward Josh McRoberts and the Memphis Grizzlies: “Josh McRoberts is on the Grizzlies’ radar — again. The 6-10 power forward/center, whom the Griz attempted to acquire in a trade with the Indiana Pacers last season, is an unrestricted free agent. Griz general manager Chris Wallace contacted McRoberts’ agent, Mike Conley Sr., last week when the NBA allowed team executives to talk with player agents. There is mutual interest, according to league sources, although no deals can be agreed upon until the collective bargaining agreement is finalized. The league’s agreement with the union is expected to be completed by Friday when training camps are scheduled to open. McRoberts, 24, is also drawing interest from the Los Angeles Lakers after having spent the past three seasons playing for the Pacers.”

    Please don’t do it Mr Wallace, Arthur is so much better than him just get a solid backup center.

    McRoberts is pretty underrated. A few stretches last season he was filling up the boxscores! I’ve always believed he just needed more playing time.

    McRoberts did surprise me last season.
    He seems to have more heart and guts than your average 21st century Duke big man (Carlos Boozer, Shelden Williams, Shavlik Randolph, Lance Thomas, Brian Zoubek, etc.).

    Hansborough is better than McRoberts which is probably what Indy is thinking if they let him go.

    No sh*t the Grizzlies have interest in McRoberts. They agreed to a Mayo for McRoberts trade right after the deadline last season. So DUH

    @nbk, Haha I remember that. I was thinking what a steal the Pacers would’ve got.

    No way is McRoberts 6’10. No freaking way. And he plays like a small-forward/power-forward; not a center in the least.

    I like his game though.

    He is definitely 6’10″. And he plays PF/C

    He played Center when he was in with Hansbrough. Played the vast majority at Center though. (33% of Ind’s minutes were with him at PF, 6% at C. 0% at SF 82games(.com))

    At PF* though

    i like McRoberts. He can start as a role player on a champ team. He’s the glue guy type of guy.

    I have as much interest in Josh McRoberts as I do the Grizzlies…. O_O

    McRoberts is gonna load the stats with the Lakers most likely but if it is Memphis them too. & he’s definitely 6’10 I’ve been his barber since I cut his mop off Hes a good dude & will help which ever team. Hopefully L.A so I can go see the Lake show!
