David Joerger Rumors
After meeting with Minnesota Timberwolves president Flip Saunders on Thursday, Memphis coach David Joerger is scheduled for a sit-down talk with owner Glen Taylor that could ultimately clear the way for him to become the Timberwolves coach, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Grizzlies are likely to ask for a second-round pick in exchange for letting Joerger out of his contract to coach the Timberwolves, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
“It took us some time because we tried to change (the offense) and I don’t think it really (worked),” Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley told USA TODAY Sports. “We went fast, and I think we got a little bit out of control for everybody. We’re still playing a little bit quicker, but when we get to our offensive sets, we’re able to slow it down to a pace that’s better for our bigs, and it’s working. “We knew that there were some plays from last year that we probably should keep. They’re still working, so why not keep using them? They just hadn’t been put in yet. We were going through a whole new set of plays, and I think it was just easier to just jump into something that we knew. … After three or four games, we started to adjust and to get a little bit of old Grizzlies back in there.”
