Report: Grizzlies To Hire Tayshaun Prince For Front Office Job

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.
