Taylor Jenkins discussed the new core of the Memphis Grizzlies after selecting Ja Morant with the second pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
“A dynamic duo...two young players that are hungry (and) already developing a great relationship off the court, and that’s going to translate mightily on the court," assessed Jenkins.
Jenkins was hired by the Grizzlies from Mike Budenholzer's staff this summer.
Jenkins pointed to Morant's unselfish play as another reason why he thinks the point guard will succeed in the league.
"The few games that I got to watch and then I saw some more film, the unselfishness. That’s going to be a big part of our program. It’s a team sport and he epitomizes that.”
