Honestly, I totally expected this podcast to be a Summer League recap, and then boom! Trades!

The Memphis Grizzlies made two trades earlier this week, turning Eric Bledsoe into Patrick Beverley, Rajon Rondo, and Daniel Oturu — which resulted in Bledsoe (a Klutch client) getting to the Los Angeles.. crazy coincidence. Then they flipped Beverley to Minnesota for Jarrett Culver (6th pick in the 2019 draft) and Juan Hernangomez.

For this episode, I talked with GBB Associate Editor and Memphis Hustle correspondent Brandon Abraham about:

  • The swing of Jarrett Culver, what his role would be, and what he could become
  • Sam Merrill’s Summer League performance and his standing on this team
  • The rationale behind Killian Tillie’s two-way deal
  • Which Hustle players have the best chance of sticking around
