Grizzlies Trading Speights, Selby, Ellington and a Draft Pick to Cavs for Leuer


With the Grizzlies looking to clear salary off their books, Memphis and Cleveland are in the midst of completing a multi-player trade. Reports the Plain Dealer: An NBA source has confirmed a pending trade that would send Cavaliers forward Jon Leuer to Memphis for big man Marreese Speights, guards Wayne Ellington and Josh Selby, and a valuable, future first-round pick. The trade could be completed before tonight’s Cavs game against Boston.”

    WHAT’S A “LEUER”?

    what a f*cking steal for Cleveland. *daps* to their management on this coupe.

  • Max

    What the f*ck Memphis?
    You just traded the little things you had on your bench for a Leuer…..
    Now they’re stuck with Bayless and Arthur and that’s it, with Pondexter out.
    There goes the little chance of competing for real.
    Hopefully Wroten can get some minutes now.

  • Redd

    That’s what I thought when I saw this on ESPN lol.

  • Redd

    In their defense, DA is a decent piece. Not in their defense, DA just came off an injury.

  • Max

    I know, I really like him, but getting rid of Ellington and Speights means less rotation and 10 less points of the bench.
    But hey, it’s better than getting rid of Gay.

  • Seth

    Memphis is signing Delonte West and Bill Walker.

  • Seth

    I hope the Cavs throw Selby into the mix right away. He was ballin in the summer league. Hasn’t had many minutes this season.

  • Max

    Oh really?
    Well it is something.
    Delonte, Bill Walker and Tony Allen.
    You do not want to get in trouble with those guys.

  • Max

    I was hoping he’d get some minutes this season.
    Looking forward to that.

  • spit hot fiyah

    really surpeised they gave up Ellington, he was their only legit 3 Point shooter, maybe leuer gives them some. hopefully Selby gets a chance in Cleveland, Memphis must like wroten better than him. speights is not surprising, Arthur was taking all his minutes

    When I first saw that the Grizzlies had made a trade this morning, I thought Rudy Gay was gone. Happy to see it’s something different. Would like for Josh Selby to get a chance somewhere. Too bad it won’t be in Cleveland behind Kyrie Irving.

    well…this should be a sign pointing to the Griz keeping Rudy Gay

  • Max

    Maybe he’ll play the Boobie Gibson role?

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    There doesn’t even seem to be a need for a backup PG at this point. Shaun Livingston is getting the 12 or so minutes that Kyrie isn’t playing.

  • RayJr

    You use it to catch fish.

  • theDankerNuggets

    not much of a coupe, just Memphis owners being f*cking cheap

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    it’s still a coupe dude. They got back way more value then they gave away. Why it happened doesn’t change what it is.
    .
    When the Lakers got Pau back for Kwame and Marc, at the time, it was a coupe. Even though Memphis was actually saving money and being cheap.

  • theDankerNuggets

    yeah i guess that’s true, they managed to be the team to get all that value from the dumbass Grizzlies

  • Max

    Oh yeah, I forgot about him.
    Didn’t he start the season with the Wiz?

    A decent trade for my Cavs, reaping the benefits of the Grizzlies salary dump.

    We need to build up our bench depth, Cavs need help everywhere. Especially with Varejao out for the season.

  • deception is the only felony

    Ironic these grizzlies covered SLAM this month and suddenly the rumors and trades spill out from this team.

  • Dutch Rich

    to lure Bears

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Yeah he did.

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    So Memphis is quitting before it even really tries. Ridiculous. It’s all about money in the League. Fans should be irate.

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    For the record, it’s coup. No “e”. A Coupe with an “E” is what pimps and hustlers like to ride in.

    THANK YOU. Holy sh*t man you don’t understand how mad it made me when i couldn’t figure it out. I tweeted it out looking for a correction because Google just kept throwing me to cars. lol. thank you for real, my brain died today.

  • Hugo Silva

    Man, the Grizzlies got ripped off on this one. Theyre giving up a talented big man in spieghts and theyre also losing their best shooter (arguably) in Ellington.

  • Dutch Rich

    All three could start over Zeller, I don’t even care what their natural positions are.

  • BossTerry

    Does Sacramento trading Cousins to ATL for Josh Smith just make too much sense??

  • dd

    they are saving money and probably giving wroten playing time..
