Tayshaun Prince SF MEM 2 Days

Prince will come off the bench and play less minutes this year, 92.9 ESPN in Memphis reports.

Prince is 34 years old, and the team believes it would be foolish to tax his body any more than necessary during the long regular season grind. In regard to Prince's role, Coach Dave Joerger referenced the role Mike Miller played with the Heat during LeBron James' time there, and how Miller only played about 50 regular season games. Thus it's possible Prince could be in line to see similar rest during the regular season in hopes that he still has something to contribute come playoff time. Prince is not the floor-spacing threat that Miller is, but it appears Joerger believes he can still get something out of the unique, aging veteran. Still, Prince's reduced role makes him even less desirable as a fantasy option, and he was already only worth consideration in the deepest leagues last year. Unless serious injuries strike the Grizzlies, it's hard to envision him making a return to relevance in fantasy.

The Grizzlies declined a proposed trade which would have sent Tayshaun Prince and the No. 22 pick to Toronto for John Salmons and the No. 37 pick.

The Grizzlies would have sacrificed a solid pick, which they turned into Jordan Adams, just to dump the remaining $7.7 million on Prince's contract. They're still eager to unload him, but are unlikely to find any takers for their unproductive, overpaid veteran SF. As for Salmons, the Raptors are fully expected to waive him before June 30 -- the final year on his contract is only guaranteed for $1 million.

Tayshaun Prince could be headed to the Raptors as part of a deal that involving draft picks.

The proposed deal would send Prince and his $7.7 million expiring contract to Toronto along with the 22nd pick in Thursday's draft. There is no word as to what the Grizzlies would receive in return, but this trade would give the Raptors the 20th and 22nd pick in the draft and allow them to potentially move up in the draft. Prince averaged 6.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists with the Grizzlies during the 2013-14 season and doesn't hold much fantasy value for the 2014-15 season no matter where he's playing.

Tayshaun Prince (illness) practiced on Sunday and is expected to play against the Thunder on Monday.

He missed the second half of Saturday's game due to the illness, but the Grizzlies probably aren't going to play him much in order to give Tony Allen more run. Prince may still be getting over an ankle injury from earlier this month and he's not likely to be much of a factor in this series.

Tayshaun Prince will miss the second half of Saturday's Game 1 against the Thunder due to an illness.

He played just four minutes and failed to score in the first half, and Tony Allen started the second half in his place. This could end up being a permanent move, as Prince was highly ineffective this season. It also may not matter, as the Thunder are trouncing the Grizzlies and are playing on a different level.
