Grizzlies sign Damon Stoudamire and Brent Barry - "Big O" will replace waived Daugherty


The Vancouver Grizzlies continue to upgrade their roster. Free agent-guards Damon Stoudamire (25 years old) and Brent Barry (27) came to terms on multiple-million-deals with the Canadian franchise.

Stoudamire, 7th pick in 1995 Draft and Rookie of the year with the Raptors back then, signed a 3-year-contract, which will bring him 23 million dollar. The 5'10" small point guard averaged 19.9 points and 5.5 assists in 82 games for Portland last season, his 3rd consecutive season with at least 19ppg. His assists dropped 9 to 5 though, while his shooting (.395 FG) still has to be improved as well.. Stoudamire is expected to play as Vancouver's starting point guard, replacing sophomore-to-be Bobby Jackson.

Brent Barry was traded from Miami to Indiana during 1997/98 season, averaging 8.4 points in 79 games. Barry now enters his 4th season in NBA after spending two years with the Clippers, where he had his best season as a rookie 1995/96 (10.1ppg, 44 games as a starter). "We had to play small forward Sam Mack as shooting guard last year, and now we have Vince Carter and Barry, that's great", said Grizzlies' coach Brian Hill on this signing. Barry agreed on a 2-year-deal worth 11.40mm.

In other news, the Grizzlies waived injury-proned returnee Brad Daugherty (9.4ppg in 40 games with Vancouver last year) and signed Oliver "Big O" Miller as his replacement. Miller, who is known as "The Big O" because of his large size (6-foot-9, over 300 pounds), averaged 3.6 points in 72 games for Toronto and Phoenix last season, fighting with his weight problems (he was listed 280lbs as a rookie back in 1992, while now he's listed at 310). Anyway, he Grizzlies do hope that Miller can repeat the numbers he had with Toronto in 1995/96 (12.9ppg, 7.4rpg).

Wow you just upgraded BIGTIME.
I can't believe you managed to snag Stoudamire of all people. Your backcourt used to be pretty meh but .........
Mighty Mouse/Vinsanity + Jackson off the bench :applaud:.

Waaaay better GM then the real Grizzilies GM that's for sure.

@megarover: Thanks, mate! Stoudamire has always been one of my favourite players, so I'm glad we managed to sign him. I agree, our backcourt did become a nice upgrade ;) Being a better GM than the real-life Grizzlies' GM back then isn't that hard, but thanks anyway :P

Postby megarover on Sun Dec 02, 2012 8:47 am

The TrailBlazers have got my attention it looks like. They won't exactly be the JailBlazers without Stoudamre but with Nash i guess they can always be the BailBlazers :cheeky: sounds interesting.

The new look Cavs and Bulls will make some noise too but not too sure how good they'll be.......

Thanks for the feedback, megarover :)

Your new name for the Trailblazers sounds good ;) Definitely a team to watch, I think they did pretty well in off-season.

And I agree about the Cavs and Bulls, too. Cavs did add an important piece in Pippen.. the Bulls will be the most interesting team without all of their former stars though. Jordan will have to put up numbers like he did in last season, 30+ ppg minimum, to get that new Bulls achieve something.

Haven't replied in here yet, but have been following and it looks really good. Really detailed with plenty of screenshots and stats, which I like. Keep it up, maybe you can snag a low play-off seed this year with Carter on board.

Wow, the Bulls sure dropped off, I picked them with probably the same mod and was able to keep Pippen and Kukoc. Traded Kukoc for Lamar Odom in the next years draft, he was the 9th pick or something and jumped to 90+ in his third year. Also got Nash and Jermaine O'Neal, but still didn't win a title while simming.

Your bench looks almost as good as your starting line up most of last year.

Bobby J coming off the bench and its only a matter of time before Jamison snag that starting PF spot too.

Any prediction on how many games you think you'll win?

@Martti: Thanks for following, that's always an extra motivation :) And yes, the Bulls are facing a tough year, not sure where they'll end up without Kukoc/Pippen/Rodman. They have two years left with MJ on their team, so maybe a big free agent next year and things will go positive.

@megarover: Yes, our team definitely got some depth. Jamison is likely to become a starter soon, but Smith is a decent rebounder, so we will start him first. How many wins the Grizzlies will grab? Well, it's tough to say. 30 wins would be a target, but I don't know if I will be able to do so ;) The game rates our team 25th overall.. defense is the key here.

@all: Anyone experienced a framerate-issue in 2nd year of association? My game ran smoothly in first season, but in my first games in 2nd season, my framerate dropped to 15-30fps. I'm currently trying to fix it, but any ideas are welcome!

Nice to see you still in here. Your team looks awesome now, with much potential in the next few years. Also interesting to see how the Bulls compete, i guess Jordan will have another 30++ season.

Knicks vs Sonics was a special final, i think both of them would have deserved the title.
