Grizzlies to interview Blazers assistant


The list of candidates for the vacant Grizzlies head coaching job continues to grow.

The Oregonian newspaper reports Memphis has been given permission to speak with Portland Assistant Nate Tibbetts.

Tibbetts has been in Portland the last 2 seasons. Prior to that, he spent time as an assistant with the Cleveland Cavaliers and as head coach of the NBA D-league's Tulsa 66ers for two seasons.

Tibbetts was profiled recently by ESPN as one of several assistants who could land a head coaching gig this season.

Tibbets is expected to interview with the Grizzlies sometime next week.
