Quincy Pondexter is as usual the first man out on the court for shoot-around. He is without doubt, the hardest working player on the team. I have seen this guy shooting with a coach in the practice court, near the lobby of the FedEx Forum, an hour after a game. Tonight he is working on his one-on-one defense and ball handling (which is what you want him to improve on). This team has a real need for him, and he has fallen into a situation here in Memphis that if he improves, he could really shine.
Josh Selby was sent to the D-League, and Jeremy Pargo has shown that he is not the answer off the bench at PG. In 5 minutes of play against the New Jersey Nets, Pargo committed 3 turnovers, and shot 0-2. Now I understand everyone has bad games, but how many good games has Jeremy Pargo had? So at the point guard position, we are left with Mike Conley, and O.J. Mayo. So if Pondexter can come in and give the Grizzlies good minutes at SG, maybe we will be okay… It just feels to me like a move needs to be made to help solidify the PG position.
Do you think the Grizzlies need to make a trade?
