The Memphis Grizzlies have received permission to interview Michael Winger, who is currently assistant general manager of the Oklahoma City Thunder. But Winger has declined the interview, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

The Grizzlies' position is currently viewed as more of an assistant general manager/possible GM in waiting with Chris Wallace continuing as GM for the foreseeable future.

Winger was hired by the Thunder from the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010.
