Draft Express is reporting that the Grizzlies would like to move up from 28 to grab a wing player before Orlando and some others. The deal they mention is #28 and Kyle Lowery to the Nuggets for pick #20.
Would you do this deal for pick #18? DX later mentions:
The Wizards wouldn’t mind moving out if someone would offer them a good deal involving a point guard, but at this point that doesn’t seem likely to happen.
Moving back 8 spots and picking up Lowry (1.1M, 2M and 2.9 in salary over the next 3 seasons) would be fine by me. Then we can take BPA at #28 or potentially move back again to secure multiple second round picks. Minnesota, Portland, Sacramento and Seattle all have muliple 2's. It appears Memphis is only willing to take back salary to move up form #5 so i didn't bother hoisting Etan or AD on them.
