MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies hope the recent tumultuous turnover in their front office translates into a solid, unified draft Thursday night.

For now, the team only has to concentrate on one pick - the 22nd overall - and the opportunity to add selections.

After losing a seven-game series to Oklahoma City in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs, the Grizzlies had a shake-up May 19 with owner Robert Pera ousting chief executive officer Jason Levien and player personnel director Stu Lash.

Chris Wallace took charge temporarily, returning to an active role as general manager with John Hollinger staying as vice president of basketball operations.

Exactly who will make the final decision Thursday remains is unclear, but the Grizzlies say coach Dave Joerger, Wallace, Hollinger and Pera will work together.
