Now that Andrew Bynum has kicked him to the curb, Cap is basically free to look for other work. And the Grizzlies are interested: “The Memphis Grizzlies asked for and received permission to speak to Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, possibly about a position with the team, a Lakers spokesman said Tuesday. Abdul-Jabbar attended opening night festivities at Staples Center, but declined to comment. Abdul-Jabbar, whose role as a special assistant to Lakers coach Phil Jackson has been decreased this season, attended the Grizzlies’ practice Monday. He also had dinner with the Grizzlies’ big men Sunday, according to a report in a Memphis newspaper.”
