Hasheem Thabeet Didn’t Nix the Grizzlies

by June 22, 2009

Never believe what the blogs are saying, kids: “After learning late Friday that Thabeet canceled his visit to Memphis because of a ‘shoulder injury,’ the Grizzlies dispatched executives and coaches to Los Angeles for a meeting with the 7-3 center out of Connecticut. Griz general manager Chris Wallace, scouting boss Tony Barone Sr., head coach Lionel Hollins and assistant coach Johnny Davis hopped an afternoon flight on Saturday and headed for Hollywood. They spent about three hours in Los Angeles and returned to Memphis late Saturday night.”
