    The insane amount of garanteed money before proving anything can't help the motivation factor

      I think JJ will have a good career, but he will have to fight hard for PT this year. Both Anderson and Bruno can play. I think he might spend some time a SG as there is less competition for minutes there, and he is a bit small for the 3. Bruno has a 8" reach advantage over Josh, so I think SG is Josh's best position. He just needs to shot 35%+ on his 3's. He could become a good 3&D player pretty soon if motivated, and he does have passing abilities and the skill to create off the dribble. I guess it is up to his work ethic and desire to be great.

        Grizzlies have little to lose. JJ stands to gain if he grows up

          Marquese Chriss is a example of a young career being ruined by bad management, like Jahlil and Lonzo. The managers literally have no idea what they're doing

                It’s never just about skill set, but also about mentality. He doesn’t have the highest maturity level.

                      Phoenix is doing what they do to 90plus% of their young talent since the Nash era. They Fluck up their devolvement.
                      Just to name few recent/current names. TJ Warren, Josh Jackson, even Booker they're not developing him properly, Bender, Criss was emasculated, Dragic, etc. They never get the right vets in to teach be pros. Even if you have to trade some prospects.

                      If they're smart they would trade ALL young prospects except Booker, Ayton, Bridges. Stock up future picks and veterans with winning experience. And trade Rubio. Then acquire CP3 to be drill sergeant on the young talent.

                      Thats only way to save Booker and Aytons development after the blunders lately.

                        I feel like he could still be a vital starter he needs to learn to just play his role. Doesn’t need to be a scoring option

                                Josh Jackson, Andrew Wiggins, Kelly Oubre, Chieck Diallo, Cliff Alexander all these stud recruits Adidas paid to go to Kansas turned out to be busts. Too funny.

                                      Pistons needed skill at SF, shoulda traded for him. Now we have Tony Snell, but need an athletic backup that can score.. Glen Robinson III didn't work out. Snell is more of a defensive specialist.

                                        I like Jackson's skill set. But I think he fits best as a 6th man.

                                          Hope this wakes up Josh Jackson, this will more likely be his last shot of having that superstar window before he becomes a journeymen until he finds the right situation to let him become that dude. During the 2017 Draft he was ranked the best recruit and some say he would've went #1 had Boston had confidence he wanted to play there but he passed on them and worked out for L.A. and Pheonix and ironically Memphis who didnt have a top pick but was expected to deal Conley for a potential climb up.

No only because of the new environment but he's on his last leg. Our coaching staff is full of development coaches from different aspects. We have coaches from G-League, assist NBA coach, Notre Dame women's coach ( all their runs while she was a player or coach, European league, & 2 more development coaches. Plus our head coach comes from both the Pops & Bud coaching tree. For vets we have Jonas, Crowder, Kyle Anderson, & don't forget Tayshuan Prince is part of our front office. Jaren & Ja both kids & KG always in Memphis working with Jaren so Josh will have a lot of positive around him. It's up 2 him if he wants 2 be not only a better player but a better person.

                                                                                      For me this guys don’t have the hunger for more. Sometimes you want something so bad like a new car or a job but then you like it no more. Some players just making it to the NBA is enough for them that’s an accomplishment which I don’t blame them because how many people want to make it to the league. I remember Monk from Charlotte said the NBA was boring the traveling all that
