Grizzlies GM: 'It's very possible we make another deal'

USA TODAY Sports

Today, Memphis Grizzlies' GM Chris Wallace told the Commercial Appeal that the team may not be done trading, even after they've moved five players over the past week-plus.

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.
