Earlier this afternoon, we got a bit of surprising news when Dave Joerger told the Wolves that he’ll be staying put in Memphis. Joerger appears to be staying put and General Manager Chris Wallace could conceivably stay as well, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Grizzlies’ search for the next GM will include Wallace as a candidate.
Wallace is in the mix, but he’ll have a lot of people to beat out. It’ll be a broad search for the next GM and it’s one that will include Magic assistant GM Matt Lloyd as a candidate, tweets Sam Amick of USA Today.
In a Twitter Q&A with fans, Pera revealed that he hadn’t spoken to Joerger one-on-one until this weekend (link). The owner added that Joerger is a “great coach.” Pera went on to say that Joerger will “definitely” be manning the sidelines next season (link via Sam Amick of USA Today).
