MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Believe it or not, the NBA season is almost here as the new-look Grizzlies — with the Core Four sadly cut in half — set to open training camp on Tuesday inside the FedExForum.

But new faces on the roster are not the only changes being made this year.

The FedExForum is also getting a new look, most notably with a state-of-the-art HD video board that hangs over center court.

There will also be four big-screen video monitors — one for every corner of the arena.

The perks don't end there. For the players, the Grizzlies have also upgraded the locker room, the weight room and the team's training area, making it rival any in the NBA.

"We actually had one player, because we re-oriented, reorganized everything, that kind of got lost in the space because we now have the players lounge and the training room," said Jason Wexler with the Grizzlies organization.

"The locker room's in a new space. They're getting used to it. They're really pleased. They know it's as good as it gets in the NBA."
