Grizzlies execs explain decision to fire Coach Bickerstaff

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) – We finally have a better idea of what exactly went down Thursday within the Memphis Grizzlies organization.

Head coach JB Bickerstaff was fired, and general manager Chris Wallace was reassigned to a scouting role.

It all happened just hours after the two went out in front of media members with the understanding that they would return in their roles with the Grizzlies next season.

The decision to fire Bickerstaff and reassign Wallace was made prior to the exit interviews.
