Why would Memphis want an undersized PF who gets paid $6 million a year over a PF with potential on a rookie contract?
This trade sin't for Memphis to acquire a player in Bass but to help us acquire a player we could use that they have no need for. I just read that Coach Lionel plans out using only a 8 man rotaion that Ed Davis may not be included in. If so he'll have to fight to get minutes with Pondexter.
Memphis does this trade to help us now which helps them later.
Bos: Trade = Young Big With potential. Good prospect for K.G. to work with.
Mem: Trade = A draft pick, Cash & flexibility to trade or keep Bass contract. Most likely trade it.
The most fitting of this trade may include a 3rd team.
