Griz To See Brown, Vandeweghe

The Grizzlies are in the beginning stages of a process to fill their head coach and general manager vacancies, and the team is scheduled to interview two experienced candidates this week, according to an NBA source.

Former New York Knicks coach Larry Brown will meet with Grizzlies majority Michael Heisley today to discuss replacing interim head coach Tony Barone Sr. Former Denver Nuggets boss Kiki Vandeweghe will soon follow Brown to talk to Heisley about replacing team president Jerry West, who announced his intention to leave the organization July 1.

Heisley is expected to meet with three executives and three coaches — one who remains unnamed — early on in the process.
