Memphis Grizzlies Rumors
The Memphis Grizzlies have named Jerry Stackhouse, Nick Van Exel and six others as assistant coaches. Coach J.B. Bickerstaff says his staff will emphasize “discipline, grit, physical and mental toughness.” Along with Stackhouse and Van Exel, it will include Chad Forcier, Greg Buckner, Vitaly Potapenko and Adam Mazarei as assistants and J.J. Outlaw and Kevin Burleson as assistant coaches for player development.
Sam Amick: The Kings aren’t the only top five team wrestling with the Michael Porter Jr. question: I’m told the Grizzlies are still seriously considering him at No. 4 – health concerns and all – after today’s medical display for lottery teams. Like Sacto, trading down is a possibility too.
Peter Edmiston: Interesting to hear @Adrian Wojnarowski talking in his latest pod about the Grizzlies’struggles to get players in – and also to get some medical information from certain players. Only Wendell Carter among the top prospects has been to Memphis. Pretty mediocre (to be kind) set of workouts…
Mike Fisher: #FishTips 8) Sources tell me #Kings #Grizzlies & #Bulls (who wish he’d drop to 7) are in on Porter Jr. And the #Mavs are saying they are, too. Of course, somewhere in here can be some chum.
Mike Fisher: EXCLUSIVE: NBA sources tell me #Mavs ‘would look at taking on money in exchange for a top-10 pick’ – i.e., Chandler Parsons + #Grizzlies pick No. 4. Full story coming to DallasBasketball.com
