Memphis Grizzlies Hire Elston Turner as Lead Assistant Coach

The Memphis Grizzlies already have a new head coach, and now they have a new lead assistant coach—Elston Turner, who will specialize on the defensive end of the court. Per CSNNW: “Longtime NBA assistant Elston Turner has accepted a lead assistant position with the Memphis Grizzlies, a league source relayed to CSNNW.com. The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Turner was the No. 1 option for newly crowned Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger. Turner, 54, is considered to be one of the great defensive minded coaches in the profession. He also had talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves in regards to rejoining Rick Adelman’s staff.”

    Agree. That what happens when people fall in love with numbers. I love stats myself but you always have to remember that it’s ONE more thing to look at. It shouldn’t replace everything. But time will tell.
