GBBLIVE!: Marcus Smart traded to the Memphis Grizzlies
Shawn Coleman dives into the blockbuster deal that has made Marcus Smart a Memphis Grizzly. Shawn describes the details of the deal, including sending Tyus Jones to Washington, and looks at why Marcus Smart was a smart move for Memphis:
-despite being a bit of an overpay, Memphis was in a position from an asset standpoint for this move to make sense
-the addition of Smart also adds value defensively but his playmaking can also make the offense more consistent
-The Grizzlies have plenty of versatility that can offer plenty of different ways to win, especially featuring the best defensive duo in the league in Smart and Jaren Jackson Jr.
-For a team looking to improve the roster for different playoff runs, Smart is an excellent addition due to his experience and ability to make winning plays
-Finally, for a franchise that has more questions than it expected going into the offseason, Smart is the exact type of talent and person to reset the focus on helping the Grizzlies get to the next level on their road to contention
