Grizzlies To Retain J.B. Bickerstaff As Head Coach?

As our 2018 NBA Head Coaching Search Tracker demonstrates, there has been little to no news regarding the Grizzlies’ search for a new head man. Moreover, Memphis hasn’t been linked to any new coaching candidates.

But as reported by Real GM, Marc Stein of The New York Times recently stated on the Dunc’d on Podcast that his sources believe interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff will remain as head coach of the Grizzlies next season.

“I can’t remember the last time somebody brought up the Grizzlies,” said Stein. “(Grizzlies owner) Robert Pera, maybe he has a surprise in store. I can just tell you, basically everyone I talk to is operating under the assumption J.B. Bickerstaff is going to be brought back. Ultimately, we’ll see until we get an announcement from the team that’s the case it’s official.”

There hasn’t been any official word on the Grizzlies being close to hiring Bickerstaff, but there appears to be sources within the NBA who strongly believe Bickerstaff will be coaching in Memphis next season.

    He should be brought back, he discovered Dillon Brooks and played the young talent. Now Memphis has their starting small forward next season in Brooks who I’m expecting to come out and average 15-17 ppg next season alongside Conley and Gasol. The Grizzlies would do themselves good to draft a 2 or 4, Porter Jr,Bagley,Doncic, Jackson jr, and Cárter Jr all fit the bill. If I was the GM, I’m drafting Porter Jr.
