Frank Vasquez would have been better because he won't sign with Magic.

Decent deal for both sides.

Godvis is a step or two ahead of Pondexter on the development curve, but its a pretty low risk flier for the Grizz and Pondexter could end up being a solid bench tweener forward.

I love Greivis, he was one of my fav grizz. Was sad no one ever made a sig with his as general grievous in star wars would have been sick.

Nice backup PG for NOLA, Vasquez was made expendable when they drafted Selby. Pondexter looked good in preseason. This could be a win win for both sides.

Memphis got really good back-up PG Jeremy Pargo,he is far better that Vasquez ,so good move for Memhis they didn't needed Vasquez

I wish the lakers would pull in some young maybe ready to play PG like this. Caracter and a 2nd round pick or two could've pulled in Vasquez.

Good opportunity for Vasquez. Jarrett Jack is alright but by no means does he have the starting PG position on lock... This gives Hornets some size in the backcourt, I think ideally he'll start next to Eric Gordon.

Lakers SHOULD have gotten Okur to backup Gasol and Bynum... silly all he costs was a 2nd round pick. They have the trade-exception from the Odom trade. USE IT. Better call Utah about Al Jefferson.

Lakers don't care about small fish,they are going for big ones,heard Lakers will stun NBA league with singing one and only Greg 'Magician'Ostertag

Will miss Vasquez gutty play but we needed more size and Pargo can really be a great backup for Conley along with Selby.

Don't let a couple playoff games fool you. Jarret Jack is clearly better rounded as a PG.

Good move for the Grizz. The writing was on the wall with the backup pg matchup, Pargo has impressed everyone here in memphis. Vasquez became expendable, and i have always liked Pondexter. Good move for both teams. Best of luck to Vasquez in NO. I think he can push for the starting nod over there

always liked greivis, but he needs to improve at most things. he'll definitely get more PT here though, not sure if pondexter will help any more than cunningham. they both aren't haddadi, which is a good thing.

I cant wait to see Selby play for the Grizz. Steal of the draft.

This...surprised he fell that far

Well..He had some character issues and severely underperformed at Kansas in his freshman year. He got some poor advice and came out a year early...He really could have benefitted from sticking around another year.

He has the talent to be a lottery-level pick, but the system at Kansas really didn't benefit his style of play, and he didn't earn Bill Self's trust.

I think he has a bright future if he keeps his head on straight and gets some legit point guard skills.

Vasquez was a stud in maryland hopefully he can reach his full potential in NO.

Greivis Vasquez is a nice player. Collison is still the technical starter over George Hill in Indiana. But that could easily change.

His stock was so damn high until the off the court stuff at KU limited him to eer finding himself there

But yeah dude will be good if he asserts himself.
