Vince Williams - NBA Thread

I’m in Bangkok on a business trip. I turn on my TV in my hotel room and I see the legend himself on the screen. Replay of the Bucks game. Really cool.

There are a few I'm aware of who closely tune in for and follow Vince and The Grizzlies, for all who have wondered about Gilyard:
https://www.commercialappeal.com/st...rd-scotty-pippen-jr-trey-jemison/72457026007/

Jacob Gilyard knows his last day with the Memphis Grizzlies under his current contract is coming soon, but he doesn’t know when. No matter how healthy Trey Jemison is, as it stands now, the center is not allowed to play in every remaining game this season.

Along with the injury hurdles the Grizzlies (20-36) have faced all season, two-way contract restrictions in the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement have led to Memphis having to manage its way through the remainder of the season with key contributors.

“You're well aware of the rules going in, but obviously the craziness of this year has kind of put us in a spot where I wish it wasn't day-to-day, but definitely day-to-day at times and week-to-week at times," coach Taylor Jenkins said. "You have to kind of navigate the health of the roster — the limitations on two-way games, we've got 10-day guys coming in as well and trying to give them opportunities to get evaluated for potential two-way spots. Getting guys two-way spots to contract spots. It's great dialogue with (general manager) Zach (Kleinman) and our staff."

Jacob Gilyard's 'difficult' situation​

According to the NBA’s CBA, no player on a two-way contract can be active for more than 50 games. This is the conflict Gilyard is facing.

Gilyard is the lone Grizzlies' two-way player from the beginning of the season who is still on his original deal. As a result, he has reached 48 actives games. After playing in 16 straight games with six starts in that stretch, Gilyard was inactive for matchups on Feb. 12 and Feb. 14.

The 5-foot-9 point guard is allowed to play in two more games. The Grizzlies signed Gilyard to a two-way deal near the end of last season after he went undrafted in the 2022 NBA Draft.

"It's difficult," Gilyard told The Commercial Appeal after last week's win against the Milwaukee Bucks. "As a basketball player, you go through mental challenges."

"I didn't get the back-to-back, or I didn't get the game before," Gilyard added. "It's my first time playing in a week, so you kind of feel a little out of your groove. So it's a little challenging, but at the end of the day, I'm just here to cheer on my teammates and help the team in any way I can."

.........

Jemison and Pippen’s situations have more clarity, but as for Gilyard, anyone’s guess is what happens next. Once he reaches the 50-game threshold, he won’t be able to play another game with the Grizzlies unless he’s signed to a standard contract. If that were to be the case, Memphis would have to release one of its current players on the 15-man roster.

The Grizzlies could also sign another player to what would be an open two-way slot, but just like Jemison and Pippen, that player’s games will be limited.

"We'll see what happens when the time comes," Gilyard said. "As a basketball player, it's definitely on your mind. I try not to let it affect me. I think that's probably the worst part about being a point guard is you start to understand things and start to grasp things like that."
 
Sad last minute loss. Grizz really battled it out for the majority of the game, like Mann said in his post game interview, they've got a lot of nice talent, strong young players who play tough, Clippers just got themselves together right at the end of the game to pull off a win.

Jackson is a great talent but the end of game decisions and inability to get other players involved has cost them more than once.
