(Memphis) Joe Nicosia and Pitt Hyde, the representatives of Local Ownership on the Grizzlies Executive Committee, issued the following statement today which was posted to the Grizzlies website.
This is in reference to Monday’s dismissals of CEO Jason Levien and Assistant General Manager Stu Lash.
“We would like to thank Jason for his contributions to Memphis and wish him well in his future endeavors. We fully support Robert in his building of a world class organization and look forward to continuing to work in concert to achieve our ultimate goal of bringing a championship parade down Beale Street. We are confident that as the 2014-2015 season draws near, all of Grizz Nation will share in our excitement regarding the future of this organization.”
