SET TO OPEN NBA TRAINING CAMP For Grizzlies’ players, front office, and fans, the instant change of an optimistic future and commitment to winning is as clear as the top of the Pyramid shining over the downtown Memphis skyline on a sunny day. Thanks to Jerry West, Grizzlies President of Basketball Operations, coaching and scouting staffs, and the players who are ready to compete and win more than 23 games during the up and coming 2002-2003 NBA season. “I am excited and ready to get started with our training camp. Jerry (West) has brought in some additional talent that we needed at key positions,” said Sidney Lowe, Grizzlies’ Head Coach. “We should have some good competition during camp to earn positions and quality playing time for the upcoming season.” The Grizzlies will host a free public open practice at the Pyramid on Saturday, October 5 starting at 9:30 a.m. Doors open at 9:00 a.m and fans will see a free Grizzlies game with entertainment including the team mascot Grizz, and the Grizzlies Dance Team. The event is free of charge and open seating will be available to everyone on a first-come, first serve basis.
