The Grizzlies rejected Ronnie Brewer, 2 1st Round picks, 2nd Round pick for OJ Mayo. Are they insane?

Though one league insider familiar with the talks said, “It looked like (Michael) Heisley didn’t want to deal with the Bulls.”

Heisley lives in the Chicago area and long has had an ambivalent relationship with the Bulls.

The Bulls supposedly offered the Grizzlies three draft picks, a player and were willing to take a bad contract from Memphis, but were turned down. Though there were questions on whether it ever reached the stage of an actual offer.

“That told me they didn’t want to deal with Chicago,” the source said.

They just didn't want to deal with us. We even offered to take back a bad contract

I guess that's why Memphis is...well, Memphis.

Heisley really didnt want to trade Mayo at all. He is a big fan of him and highly reluctant to trade him. It wasn't all about the Bulls. And what "bad contract" were they going to take? The Grizzlies don't have any...

Yes, and we are insane for offering them that much.

Brewer has to be the best defender on our team, and this is the best defensive team in the NBA, so that's saying a lot.

Not at all. They got a better offer than that from Indiana (remember The Bulls 2 1st are bottom 5 right now while the Pacers are borderline lottery).

This is PR work by the Bulls.

I actually agree with this...

But if the offer was sincere, Memphis would get another bench calibur wing player to go along with Battier, Young and Allen (can you say crowded). They would get 2 1st rounders (assuming they are Chicago's) that will be between 25-30, and a second rounder (assuming Chicago's) that will be between 55-60....

Not a great deal IMO, especially since Mayo is making affordable dollars

I don't understand how this could be interpreted as PR work. The Bulls openly stated that they were against trading big chunks of the team as they didn't want to sacrifice team chemistry. Why would they go against that by claiming Brewer was offered, when Brewer has been a big part of the bench's production, both offensively and defensively? Also, its not like they have to sedate the fans. We're 3rd in the East, and just had a great night. (Bulls win, Heat/Celtics loss).

I think you should say that to a lot of their fans on this forum...

Do you even have to ask that? We drafted Thabeet over Curry, Evans, Jennings, etc etc etc

Of course our front office is insane.

If the Grizz wanted Brewer they wouldve shown interest in resigning him and some late picks in a bad draft isnt worth it

who wouldn't want Brewer, he's a beast. He got 4 steals in the Miami game and 3 in the Toronto game. Very good slasher, deadly at the baseline, lock down defender.

I wouldn't take that either, those 2 1st will be most likely 25 or higher...I think the Memphis GM is full of it with OJ ever since they rejected that reported Ellis 4 Mayo swap. They should have took it and never looked back. No doubt Mayo trade value took a hit since then tho

Well I guess thats a good thing that we dont have too many bad contracts, but we had Thabeets bad contract.

I would rather have had Brewer + 3 picks + got rid of thabeet

rather than Get Shane Battier, and Give up a Future Pick


If thats what the bulls were offering, and we turned it down, Then you see why our franchise is struggling to put aZZes in the seats and stuggling to get into the Playoffs. An incompetent owner who will not let the basketball people make basketball decisions and because talent scouts that screw up the draft year in and year out. Smart money would be on firing the Talent scouts and replacing them with members from organizations such as San Antonio, or OKC or UTAH.... so we can build a Team thru drafting the way small market teams often have to do...and Letting Chris Wallace make the basketball decisions ( i actually think he's the only decent one in the entire front office with half a brain ) But that would make way too much sense.

Grizzlies already had him. Obviously they didnt want him back since they let him walk & rescinded their rights which would've allowed them to match his deal with Chicago.


You forgot Brewer cant shoot.:D

He has a decent mid range game actually, he can't shoot the 3 at all though

Lets also understand that Memphis doesnt want anything to do with Chicago.


How soon do you guys forget the Pau Gasol/Bulls trade rumors?

personally i think we're a little insane for offering all that. even if their late draft picks, you can still find talent anywhere in the draft, thats why you have scouts and what not. brewers been a big key to our defense this year too, i woulda rather traded gibson than brewer personally.

"Decent" shooting doesn't really matter in the NBA. You gotta be at least Above Average when shooting. Would you trust Brewer to knock down a 18 footer to tie a game?

no, but thats not his game at all, he's not a go-to playmaker long range shooting all star, he's a very decent role player whose skills can and often do turn the tide of games in your favor. He's good for the clutch 2 down at the baseline, the clutch steal + fastbreak, a power dunk here and there. He's also a good ball handler and can defend just about anyone as well as you could ask for.

He doesn't have the greatest jumper in the wold but I've see him knock quite a few down, i trust his jumper a hell of a lot more than I trust Taj Gibsons

I dont see why they wouldnt of taken that deal. They'd be getting a hell of a deal there. Probably better than anything they are ever going to get for Mayo
