Zach Kleiman Rumors
Joe Mullinax: Hey everyone, @JoeMullinax joining today’s media availability in progress. Zach Kleiman tells us that staying the course over the span of a long-term vision supported by ownership is what matters most with regard to developing the team.
Memphis Grizzlies forwards Jaren Jackson Jr. and Justise Winslow will not be ready for the start of the upcoming season. Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations Zach Kleiman told reporters Wednesday night that Jackson and Winslow will both still be recovering from injuries when the 2020-21 season starts next month, saying it is “unfortunate that the NBA season ended up starting a little bit earlier than we were budgeting for.”
Mark Giannotto: Zach Kleiman says Jaren Jackson Jr. and Justise Winslow aren’t going to be ready to start this season. Says Justise should be ready early in the season but Jaren will still be out “a minute.”
Darko Rajakovic: I’m so excited to join @Memphis Grizzlies and to work under Coach Taylor Jenkins and GM Zach Kleiman. Grizzlies have amazing talent and future is very bright. I’m grateful to have chance to serve and help organization in every possible way
It’s rare to catch Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations Zach Kleiman saying anything premature. It’s rare that Kleiman speaks publicly at all. But when the 31-year-old does talk, which he did for the third time this season on Wednesday, it usually comes with calculated and precise reverberation. Never will he get ahead of schedule. Never will he be controversial.
