Point Two: Do not trade Rudy Gay right now.
Since Gay will become a restricted free agent in 2010, they might be tempted to trade him now to get value for him. Don't. Wait until the off season and scan the market. You are going to have the money under the cap to sign him if you want.
Let's see the number before you give him away in a Pau-Gasol-type deal.
Point Three: Keep giving Zach Randolph the ball.
No one is playing better than Zach Randolph. He is playing at an All-Star level while becoming the number one scoring option on the team. As long as they remain the same, the Grizzlies will be fine offensively.
Point Four: Keep developing Hasheem Thabeet.
Remember him? It is an interesting season where the top pick in the 2009 Draft has not played and the No. 2 is buried on the bench. However, Thabeet has shown to be a defensive force at times. If he can provide some defense and ANY scoring, it could set the Grizzlies apart at the end.
With the four-point plan and a little luck, Memphis can put themselves into position for the No. 8 seed. Tell me what you think. Can Memphis make the playoffs? Or, should fans be happy with a .500 team for now. Let me now in the comments.
