Default Battier for Thabeet and a pick

The Memphis Grizzlies are confident that they'll be able to complete a deal for Shane Battier before today's deadline, according to sources close to the situation. One scenario that has been discussed would send Hasheem Thabeet and a draft pick to Houston in exchange for Battier. Nothing is imminent, but Memphis believes talks are progressing. HoopsWorld

I heard this earlier. Houston has lost their minds. Apparently Boston was interested in him and probably could have given a better package.

looks like they are trying to revive mutambo 2.0. the 1st round pick softens the blow somewhat.

Also nice job by Memphis today. Getting Battier. They lose their first round draft pick but get another one back in the Mayo trade. They also get a PF McRoberts to add more depth there.

Probably enough to make the playoffs in the West. Although they could have gotten more from Mayo I would think.

Stellar deal for Memphis. Should see them in the playoffs this year.

Well the Mayo deal didn't go through and I really don't watch Memphis games so who starts? Mayo or Battier?
