Apparently, the Rudy Gay deal may not be the end of it. That said, don't expect another "big" trade, just something that might help get the Grizzlies a much-needed rotation player.
"It’s very possible (to make another deal) because we don’t have to include one of our players because of receiving trade assignments," Wallace said at a press conference in the Grizzlies’ practice facility in FedExForum. "We now can be a team that can relieve a luxury-tax burden on another team. We can go someplace, see a player we like that’s out of a rotation and get him using this $7.5 million trade exception that’s good for the next 365 days. It’s a very valuable piece of real estate."
The Grizzlies also have to make a decision about whether to re-up Chris Johnson whose 10-day contract is up this weekend. The pros for giving Johnson another look is that he's probably, at this point, the Grizzlies' best three-point shooter -- a big need for Memphis.
