Grizzlies Perfectly Willing to Backstab in Draft

by June 18, 2009

Ricky Rubio, Stephen Curry and Jonny Flynn have all refused to meet with the Grizzlies before the Draft, but that doesn’t mean they won’t pick them: “The Grizzlies sent a message to Portland and the rest of the league this season with how they handled the Darius Miles situation. Say what you want about owner Michael Heisley but he won’t be bullied. Any direct snub or perceived threat by Rubio or his camp will compel the Griz to take him and maintain leverage. ‘If we want (Rubio), we’re going to take him,’ Wallace said Wednesday. ‘We wouldn’t have taken a 10-hour flight to Spain if we didn’t have interest in him.'”
