MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Grizzlies have all their starters back from the team that reached the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history.

They brought back a former fan favorite with championship experience signing former Miami Heat guard Mike Miller and added depth to their frontcourt by trading for Kosta Koufos.

But the Grizzlies' biggest change is on the bench.

The Grizzlies decided not to renew the contract of Lionel Hollins, the winningest coach in their short history. They promoted Dave Joerger, who won minor league championships before spending the past few seasons as a Memphis assistant.

Guard Mike Conley said Monday at the team's media day the challenge for Joerger now is being the guy who has to challenge players. Conley says he's looking forward to that.
