Memphis Grizzlies Find Their Man, Hire Jenkins as New Head Coach

After a long a thorough coaching search that included names like Sarunas Jasikevicius and Adrian Griffin, the Grizzlies have found their man and are hiring Milwaukee Bucks assistant Taylor Jenkins as the franchise’s next head coach.

Jenkins has rapidly ascended into a highly respected young coach and tactician in the NBA. He has been a part of Mike Budenholzer’s staffs with the Bucks (2018-19) and the Hawks (2013-18). Prior to that, he started coaching with the San Antonio Spurs G-League franchise in Austin, where he led the team to the playoffs.

Jenkins will become the third NBA coach to emerge out of the Mike Budenholzer coaching tree, joining Utah’s Quin Snyder and Brooklyn’s Kenny Atkinson.

The first order of business for Jenkins and the Grizzlies will be to make a decision in the upcoming draft, which many believe will be selecting Ja Morant with the No.2 overall pick.

Also with an interesting roster that includes veteran guard Mike Conley Jr and promising young forward Jaren Jackson Jr, the Grizzlies will need to decide whether they wish to re-build around a young core centered around Jackson and potentially Morant, or to compete next year and hold onto Conley.
