Grizzlies name D-League affiliate Memphis Hustle - Jun 2, 2017

Hustle will now be the baby brother of Grit and Grind. The Memphis Grizzlies unveiled their new NBA Development League affiliate team name, Memphis Hustle, on Thursday afternoon. The Hustle will debut for the 2017-18 season when the league will be renamed the NBA Gatorade League (G League). The Grizzlies have spent the past seven seasons promoting a grit-and-grind mentality that led to seven consecutive playoff appearances. Hustle is intended to be an extension of the Grizzlies' brand and pay homage to historical sports franchises like the Sounds, Chicks, Showboats and Americans, and current regional teams like the Redbirds and Ole Miss Rebels with red prominent in the logo. The Hustle will practice in FedExForum and play 24 home games at the 8,400-seat Landers Center in Southaven beginning this fall. The Grizzlies formed their own D-League, single-affiliation team after severing ties with the Iowa Energy, which is now owned by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Hustle management will resemble the Energy's staff. Chris Makris will remain as general manager, and Glynn Cyprien will coach the Hustle. Both executives were in place when the Energy's season concluded in the spring. 'Chris experienced great success during his nine years as general manager of the Iowa Energy, including the three seasons we partnered with the franchise, while Coach Cyprien brings a passion for player development and played a pivotal role in the growth of our young players as interim head coach for Iowa last season,' Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement. 'Both understand the strong culture within our franchise, and we are confident they will continue their outstanding work for our D-League expansion team.' The Grizzlies will host a fan event at Tanger Outlets in Southaven from 6-8 p.m. Friday. Pop-up performances will be held throughout the outlet mall, including performances on the main stage every 20 minutes. There will also be a fan fest from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday where the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a free T-shirt. Parking is free and all fans can enjoy complimentary popcorn.
