Pick-and-pop_ reacting to the jeff green-lance stephenson trade

On Tuesday, I noted that the Grizzlies’ trade of Courtney Lee was about the draft considerations (four second-round picks) they obtained, not about the players (Chris Andersen, P.J. Stop trade definition Hairson) included to make the salaries exchanged conform to league rules. What is trade liberalization definition I also noted that the trade answered in the affirmative a question that had been previously unclear: Would this team be willing to sacrifice present for future?

And so it is again, on both counts, for the more dramatic trade the Grizzlies snuck in right at the NBA trade deadline this afternoon, dealing forward Jeff Green to the Clippers for swingman Lance Stephenson and a future first round pick. Foreign trade means As with Lee, the headlines will say the Grizzlies traded Green for Stephenson, but they really traded Green for the draft pick in a move that doubles-down on the team’s new focus on the future.

As of this writing, the specific protection on the first-round pick coming from the Clippers isn’t clear, but the Clippers already owe a protected first-rounder to the Toronto Raptors that kicks in starting in 2017. Trade system definition That means a pick sent to the Grizzlies couldn’t be conveyed until 2019, under league rules, and based on the protections on the pick going to Toronto, there’s a chance the Grizzlies wouldn’t get the pick until 2021.


What is the definition of trademark That’s pretty far down the road but, as with the bundle of picks acquired for Lee, it can be used as a trade asset at pretty much any time.

UPDATE (skip to next graf for laymen’s terms): The actual trade call with the league office didn’t happen until around 8 p.m., but the actual protections on the pick the Grizzlies acquired in this trade are now finalized. Definition for trade barriers The clock starts in 2019, as mentioned above, where it is protected 1-14. Department of trade and industry definition It’s also protected 1-14 in 2020. Fair trade goods definition If not conveyed then, it will revert to a second-round pick in 2022. What is triangular trade definition The key here is that the Grizzlies can’t recieve the pick until two years after the earlier Clippers pick is sent to Toronto. Trade analysis definition That pick is 1-14 protected in 2017-2019. Paperback trade fiction definition If it isn’t conveyed until 2019, then the Grizzlies would only get a second-rounder. Global trade patterns definition More likely, based on the Clippers current core and market/ownership situation, they’ll still be a playoff team next season, in which case Toronto would recieve their 2017 pick and the clock on the Grizzlies pick would begin in 2019. Trade test definition At that point, the Grizzlies would want the Clippers (yes) to be a playoff team in either 2019 or 2020 to ensure they get a first-rounder from this trade.

Essentially: This could end up being a second-round pick, but is likely to be a first-rounder, and probably in 2019. Trade paperback definition There’s also, as suggested elsewhere in this piece, a decent chance the Grizzlies trade the pick before it’s ever conveyed.

The combined result of these deals, in future terms, is in bringing the team’s draft credits and debits into better balance. Foreign trade effect definition The Grizzlies now owe two future first-round picks and two future second-round picks, while receiving one future first-rounder and five future second-rounders. Definition of import trade The potential downside of the first-round picks the Grizzlies owe remains a great danger, but the team is still much better positioned today for future dealing than it was at the beginning of the week. What is the definition of international trade Some or all of these picks could eventually become rookies selected by the Grizzlies, but it’s just as likely that some of them will be used as currency in future trades.

The opportunity cost, beyond this season, is in losing “Bird Rights” (the ability to exceed the salary cap in re-signing your own players) on Lee and Green. Trade deficits definition The Grizzlies had clearly determined they were unlikely to bring those players back this summer, and they were always going to trade either if they could fetch a future first-round draft pick. Trade press definition That seemed unlikely, though four seconds was close enough for Lee.

A future first for Green seemed like a pipedream, but the Grizzlies found a desperate enough party at the very last minute in the form of the rival Clippers, who are facing a break-up this summer if they don’t make a deep playoff run and who have been unsatisfied with their wing rotation.

Given the avalanche of money on the free agent market this summer and the paucity of good players to spend it on, I wouldn’t be so certain the Grizzlies can find preferable replacements for Lee and Green, so these moves both narrow the team’s options (technically they could still sign those players, but c’mon) while putting more pressure on free agency and trade to fill some considerable needs. Trade in value definition But this is a team, after years of operating in the present, that is now clearly thinking in longer-terms, and that’s encouraging.

That P.J. The definition of trademark Hairston, Chris “Birdman” Andersen and now Lance “Born Ready” Stephenson happened to be the players (read “contracts”) that were included in these draft-pick-based deals is either unfortunate or karmic comedy for a team known for “Grit-and-Grind,” depending on your perspective. Definition of trade network Nothing personal — and “Birdman” in particular has been a quality contributor to good teams who seems well-liked by both teammates and opponents — but these are three of the more, well, colorful personalities in the league, and all with some red flags on their resume.

This is an NBA team that, for the moment, employs Tony Allen, Zach Randolph, Matt Barnes, P.J. Definition of trade barrier Hairston, “Birdman” Andersen and Lance Stephenson. What is the definition of tradeoff in economics Are we sure there isn’t a clause in the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement that prevents this?
