As media began filing out of the press conference introducing Taylor Jenkins as the Memphis Grizzlies new head coach, I asked Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies’ in-house “Grind City Media” unit how long he’d been with the team. I admit, I knew the answer when I asked. “Three years,” Wallace...
Last week, I wrote that with the NBA Draft kicking off the summer offseason, it would make sense for the Grizzlies to have their new coach selected sooner than later. Sooner it is, then.

Editor's note: This column was written before news broke of a Grizzlies shakeup that reassigns Chris Wallace to a scouting role. J.B. Bickerstaff has also reportedly been fired.
