Tayshaun Prince is reportedly set to join the Grizzlies' front office.
The Memphis Grizzlies are reportedly all set to hire Tayshaun Prince as a special assistant to general manager Chris Wallace, as first reported by Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal.
Prince, 37, played for the Grizzlies from 2013-2015. He spent 14 years in the NBA, with 10 of those years coming with the Detroit Pistons. He was an integral member of the 2004 championship team.
“He’s a good friend and a great locker room guy,” former teammate Tony Allen said of Prince, per Tillery. “He’s a class A-1 guy. He knows how things are supposed to be run. He’s a champion.”
Prince has no previous front office experience, and is only a year removed from the league. He last played for the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2015-2016 season.
