“Raptors South” could be expanding.
Griffin, 44, is currently in his first season with the Raptors and was brought on as Toronto head coach Nick Nurse’s lead assistant after two years working under Billy Donovan with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Should he get this job with the Grizzlies, it would be his first time as an NBA head coach.
Griffin should already be familiar with some of the Memphis’ personnel as he coached Jonas Valanciunas, C.J. Miles, Delon Wright when they were Raptors before they were traded as part of the Marc Gasol deal at the trade deadline this season.
