Grizzlies Interview Jarron Collins For Head Coaching Vacancy

Warriors assistant Jarron Collins is the latest candidate to interview for the vacant head coaching job in Memphis, tweets Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

He is only the second known person to interview for the position, following Jazz assistant Alex Jensen, who met with team officials last week in Memphis. The Grizzlies are also reportedly interested in Lithuania’s Sarunas Jasikevicius, currently the head coach of Zalgiris Kaunas. Memphis has been moving deliberately with its coaching search since dismissing J.B. Bickerstaff after the season ended.

Collins, 40, has been with Golden State for the past five years. He started as a player development coach in 2014/15, then was promoted to assistant coach a year later. Collins spent 10 years as a player with the Jazz, Suns, Clippers and Trail Blazers before retiring at the end of the 2010/11 season.

    I would have guessed Jarron Collins was still bouncing around the league somewhere as a 3rd string center.
