Grizzlies trade Speights, Selby and pick to Cavs for Lauer, source said.

I believe Speights deal would leave Grizz about $100K over tax. Cavs can send cash to make up gap. Speights can veto deal (Bird Rights)
Quote:
As I speculated in original Rudy piece, Grizz found contingency plan to cut tax bill w/o dealing him. In-season deal much less likely now

Grizz still almost certain to be taxpayers in next two seasons, meaning they will continue exploring cost-cutting trades this summer.

does that solve Memphis salary problems? More specifically does this end Gay trade rumors?

Mareese is a good player, hits mid range shots and hustles.

I remember him for being very clutch in Detroit. Hitting some big shots and making defensive plays

Uhh, Philly then?
Somehow I mixed him up with Maxiell. But I still meant that Speights was clutch and underutilized his whole career

Yep, getting the team ready for when LBJ comes back to finish his career with a title there and save some face.

Temporarily for this year, unless a stellar deal comes along. Next summer still looks potentially ugly for that team.

The Memphis Grizzlies have agreed to trade Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby and a future draft pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jon Leuer, according to a source.

The Grizzlies will save approximately $6 million with the trade, allowing management to avoid $4 million in luxury tax penalties.

The trade will allow the Grizzlies to keep Rudy Gay without tax penalties, but also bring more competitive offers.

The Cavaliers have waived Jeremy Pargo in order to make the trade work.The first round pick is protected from 1-5 and 15-30, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

The Cavaliers have now traded for six first round picks since 2010.

Wow. They're really stripping down. Ellington and Speights were big parts of their rotation. That's a lot of depth out the window. They are really screwing them selves IMO.

i think memphis made a mistake. trading speights is one thing but ellington was their only consistent outside threat.

The Memphis Grizzlies will sign Bill Walker, Delonte West and Sasha Vujacic following their cap clearing trade on Tuesday.

Vujacic has been playing in Europe, while West was released by the Mavericks in October.

Those are solid if unspectacular pickups (Walker, West, Vujacic) although the loss of Speights may be felt.
