Memphis promotes Tayshaun Prince

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies have promoted Tayshaun Prince to vice president of basketball affairs in the franchise’s basketball operations department.

He played 14 years in the NBA and won a championship with Detroit in 2004. Prince also helped the Grizzlies reach their lone Western Conference final in 2013.

The Grizzlies fired coach J.B. Bickerstaff and restructured the front office a day after the season ended earlier this month.
