"Untrue. There’s no trade possibility for Rudy (Gay). Rudy is a Memphis
Grizzly, and for as long as he wants to be, he will be." Hollins,
responding to a question about a recent ESPN.com report that suggested
the Griz are willing to trade Gay.
Griz coach Lionel Hollins experimented with his lineups for a second
straight game, allowing at least four reserves to play together at once
Saturday night against the San Antonio Spurs.
Hollins, who used a five-man substitution Friday night, said he’s trying to develop an otherwise offensively challenged bench.
Earning a postseason berth hasn’t been one of the Grizzlies’ stated goals for this season.
But privately, they have made appearing in the playoffs a mission.
To that end, the Grizzlies’ effort to improve the team’s depth is
ongoing. Memphis has three first-round picks in the 2010 NBA draft and
is peddling its two late-round selections in an attempt to add scoring
off the bench.

A portion of the professional basketball world contended that the
Memphis Grizzlies had presented the Los Angeles Lakers with a National
Basketball Association championship back on Feb. 1, 2008, when they

When Allen Iverson actually plays a game in FedExForum is anyone’s guess.
Fourth-year forward Rudy Gay and the Grizzlies failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension before the NBA deadline.
Allen Iverson will miss three weeks with a partial tear in his left hamstring, the Grizzlies announced before Wednesday’s preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. That means Iverson will be sidelined for the rest of the preseason — and his availability for the team’s regular-season opener against the Detroit Pistons on Oct. 28 is in jeopardy.
Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins ended the first day of his first NBA training camp by challenging his players to a game of "go home or sprint."
Memphis Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric is expected to seek a contract buyout from the Grizzlies if a team willing to trade for Jaric can’t be found, his agent said Monday.
