Roland Tillery, the Grizzlies beat writer for the Memphis Commercial Appeal addressed the potential interest in Courtney Lee in his weekly chat this week.
I know that current Griz management is fond of Lee mainly because they represented him (Stu Lash). But it’s hard to tell what Boston’s thinking is. If the Celtics traded Lee to the Griz into a trade exception it would be a salary dump. Right now, it looks like Boston is in a holding pattern given how well they are doing without Rondo
As of right now, the only way dealing Lee would make sense for Boston is if they had a couple other moves lined up to fill his spot, since dealing him into the Grizz trade exception would open up one of their own. That would appear to be a challenging move however to make all the pieces work to say the least.
